Over the last few hours, we’ve reported about a new Diablo IV rumor, which was based on a tip from an insider who had revealed some practical information from Blizzard, such as the reveal of Overwatch heroes.
That looked somewhat reliable, also if you consider that, after the Diablo Immortal backlash, the company has never made a secret of being working on a new Diablo game for leading platforms. The reveal could happen at the incoming BlizzCon.
Now, we do have one more clue that is seemingly pointing at the incoming BlizzCon being the right place and event for such a big reveal. Amazon Germany has indeed inserted into its listings a brand new artbook, called The Art of Diablo, which mentions the latest game in the franchise (via VG247).
The book is said to be “featuring over 500 artworks from Diablo, Diablo II, Diablo III, and Diablo IV,” and is releasing in the days of the BlizzCon. Diablo IV has yet to be announced, and the book is releasing right in the days of BlizzCon, so you can do the math.
As said, Blizzard has somehow to get back in touch with its community, which has been alienated due to the Blitzchung affair and, even further in the past, by the infamous Diablo Immortal announcement, that has put the company in a bad position in regards of its original PC userbase.
BlizzCon is planned for November 1-3, 2019, so we’ll soon see if things are really about to change for the studio.
