Magazine advert mentions Diablo 4 ahead of BlizzCon
Blizzard book said to contain art for unannounced sequel
A Blizzard advert has pointed towards a possible reveal for Diablo 4.
The advert for The Art of Diablo book has appeared in German magazine Game Star, claiming that the upcoming book contains “more than 500 artworks from Diablo 1, Diablo 2, Diablo 3 and Diablo 4.”
According to an Amazon listing, the book is partially written by senior Blizzard writer Robert Brooks.
Blizzard’s annual showcase, BlizzCon, is set to take place at the Anaheim Convention Center in California on November 1 and 2.
A recent Kotaku report claimed Blizzard is planning to announce a new Diablo game at the event, after delaying earlier plans to unveil it at 2018’s showcase.
According to the publication’s sources, Diablo 4 has been in development since 2016 and features a “gross” and “dark” art style in deliberate contrast to the more colourful look of Diablo 3, which divided fan opinion.
At 2018’s BlizzCon Blizzard announced mobile-only instalment Diablo Immortal, which received a negative reaction from fans hoping for news of a new PC instalment.
The strong response from fans caused the company to publish a blog post clarifying that it had “multiple teams working on different Diablo projects and we can’t wait to tell you all about them.”
VGC has contacted Blizzard for comment on this story.
