In the recent times we’ve seen how Blizzard have taken advantage of the use of comics to help further the storyline and plot in its games. To be fair the company has also relied on novels to help add new stories to games like Warcraft and Diablo, but if you’re more of a comic book fan, not to worry as Blizzard has your back.
In a report from DualShockers, it seems that Blizzard and Titan Comics have announced that a new Diablo comic series is in the works. Details are scarce but those details are expected to be expanded upon in the future. This four-part miniseries is also expected to launch in 2018 so we expect those details to be shared soon, or maybe even during BlizzCon 2018 which will take place in November.
The comics will be written by Marv Wolfman and illustrated by Piotr Kowalski and will follow a group of zealous scholars and crusaders as they try to seek the true origins of humanity. It will be interesting to see how this story could tie-in with the game or if it will help further enhance the game’s story.
At the moment Diablo 3 is the latest installment in the Diablo franchise, but there seems to be an increasing amount of rumors and reports that a Diablo 4 could be in the works and might arrive by 2020.
