Diablo III Expansion Reaper of Souls Coming to Consoles?

At Gamescom last week Blizzard announced Reaper of Souls, the first expansion for the PC version of Diablo III.
Reaper of Souls is set in the gothic city of Westmarch and features the fallen angel of wisdom Malthael, who takes the role of the main antagonist. Including a new hero called the Crusader, a level cap rise to 70, improvements to loot drops, loot customisation and a fiddled with paragon leveling system, plenty of fans are looking forward to it.
Great right? But useless to us if it isn’t coming to consoles. Thankfully, however, game director Josh Mosqueira is hinting that it will.
"We've got Diablo III on PC,” he said, “we released it and then a small team splintered off to work on Diablo for the current consoles. Now the team's really focused on Reaper of Souls for PC. So if you look at the past, you can probably infer what the future might bring."
When pressed on the issue, Mosqueira said that Blizzard didn’t have anything official to announce "at this point." But the inference is pretty clear.
Diablo III is out on Xbox 360 on September 3rd.
