Comic-Con 2011: Diablo Lore Book in the Works

Blizzard’s senior VP of story and franchise development Chris Metzen revealed at Comic-Con that the studio plans to release an official source book for the Diablo franchise alongside Diablo 3.

The Diablo compendium will take the form of the journal of fan-favorite Deckard Cain and will include an extensive rundown of the lore and history for the Diablo franchise, ranging from class descriptions to notable people.

While no release date has been given for Diablo 3, evidence points toward 2012 at the earliest, and Blizzard stated that external beta testing is targeted for Q3 2011 — so any time now. Not long ago, an alleged leak revealed information he learned from internal beta testing on his blog, which has since been taken down — was it shut down by Blizzard, or was it just another episode of “When Trolls Fail?”
