I think it was discussed if I recall that they considered it. But I am pretty sure no longer. I personally don't think a port would work well. MMO's never seem to translate well to consoles. Though I liked how FFXI least shared servers

A console version was in development but was cancelled due to the difficulty of working out a subscription model with various console multiplayer services, since players would already be paying the subscription for a console multiplayer service, many wouldn't want to pay an MMO's subscription rate on top of that. Several mmo's that have tried to get things going on consoles have ran into this same problem.

Cheaper just to play on PC's then on the console. Unless you have the lifetime of course.

Sony and Microsoft want to get some of the sub fees from Cryptic in order to host it, which is the main reason it won't hit consoles any time soon.
