An advert for an upcoming Diablo artbook seemingly confirms you could anticipate Diablo 4 to be revealed at Blizzcon 2019.
The advert in query was noticed in a difficulty of the German journal, Recreation Star. It states that an upcoming e book generally known as The Artwork of Diablo (which can reportedly be revealed by Blizzard and is ready to launch on November 21), will function “greater than 500 artworks from Diablo 1, Diablo 2, Diablo 3, and Diablo 4.” There have been some variations of that translation, however all of them counsel that Diablo 4 is referenced within the commercial.
Whereas this does appear to be respectable, we do have to throw a few drops of chilly water on this hearth earlier than it will get too out of hand. First off, it is fully attainable that the advert itself is a mistake. Whereas Recreation Star has seemingly tweeted concerning the commercial (which you possibly can definitely argue removes the opportunity of this being an outright pretend), this would not precisely be the primary time that an advert writer has printed one thing that’s technically incorrect.
It is also a bit odd that the journal in query is predicted to come back out on October 23 and BlizzCon 2019 is not till November 1. It might simply be that there was a miscommunication relating to when this advert ought to run, however once more, we would wait till you hear one thing official from Blizzard earlier than you make investments an excessive amount of into this leak.
Having mentioned that, it appears like a close to certainty at this level that Diablo 4 goes to be revealed at BlizzCon 2019. Blizzard has principally confirmed they’re engaged on the long-awaited sequel, we have seen job postings associated to the mission, and the fallout from the reveal of Diablo Immortal would seemingly counsel that Blizzard is raring to revive some religion within the Diablo title.
Naturally, we’re excited by the concept of a correct new Diablo expertise. We have beforehand named Diablo one of the necessary PC video games ever made and spoke about how its gameplay helped revolutionize the RPG style. We will not wait to see how this upcoming recreation expands upon the collection’ fascinating mythology.
