ComicCon Bliz Merch Panel Video

Fmulder points us to the Gamespot video of the Blizzard Merch panel from Thursday at the ComicCon. We’ve already posted screens of all the new DiabloWikiDiablo 3 Merchandise, but you can hear a bit more details about the upcoming Diablo books.

Apparently there are Diablo books coming up as well as the DiabloWikiBook of Cain; skip to about 11-13m for that discussion. It seems a safe bet that we’ll see more DiabloWikiDiablo Novels, but no details have yet been released. We don’t know if DiabloWikiRichard Knaak, author of the Diablo Sin War trilogy, will continue to be involved in the project.

  1. One thing made me notice, the diablo developer wasn’t there to make it cause he was to busy on Diablo3? that is kinda saying to me that they are really pushing it to get that fast 2011 release, this may seem nothing or very little but every little piece of intel seem maybe and hopefully promising. Aswell as just throwing my thoughts out there to wonder if others might think the same. This time I might really believe 2011 release is really possible.
    Also interrested in the Book of Cain, hopefully it comes with the Collector’s Edition of the game.

    • ahey buddy,this is one of the best posts that I’ve ever seen; you may include some more ideas in the same theme. I’m still waiting for some interesting thoughts from your side in your next media marketing

  2. i hope they get somebody better than richard knaak for new Diablo novels, his writing is pretty meh :/

    • I wish (and know it wouldn’t happen) that some of the guys from GamesWorkshop’s Black Library authors on top of all Blizzard novels. :/

  3. Three things:

    – A Diablo book with new lore coming up (at 10:55)

    Lore that fills the gap between Diablo II: LoD and Diablo 3, featuring Cain. “It’s pretty dark” x)

    – Explanation about what “Book of Cain” contains (at 12:55)

    A compendium of all Diablo lore told by Cain’s journals.

    – Clue about Diablo III release date (at 13:55)

    “With any luck that book will pop-up around whenever the game comes up”. “It’s something we’re working on rapidly and intensely right now”

    So, the release date for Book of Cain is intended to be the approximate date for the release of Diablo III. And we already have a leaked date for Book of Cain…

    This is just crazy speculation of coarse x)

  4. Update: The whole panel is available at Gamespot:


    At about 29:40 they annonuced an upcoming Diablo comic series called “The Sword of Jutice” with some preview art & plot details :thumbup:
