Recently we’ve seen how Blizzard has taken advantage of comics to help further the storyline and plot in its games. Then again, the company has also used novels to help add new stories to games like Warcraft and Diablo, but if you’re more of a comic book fan, Blizzard has some good news for you.
It looks like Blizzard and Titan Comics have announced that a new Diablo comic series is in the works. We don’t have many details at the moment, but we should learn more soon. This four-part miniseries is expected to launch in 2018 so those details should be shared soon, maybe even during BlizzCon 2018 which will be in November.
The comics will be written by Marv Wolfman and illustrated by Piotr Kowalski. It follows a group of zealous scholars and crusaders as they try to seek the true origins of humanity. How will this story tie-in with the game or enhance the game’s story? We don’t know yet.
Right now Diablo 3 is the latest installment in the franchise, but there seems to be an increasing amount of rumors and reports that Diablo 4 could be in the works and might arrive by 2020. We are always ready for a new title.
