Blizzcon is just around the corner and leaks for Blizzard just keep on coming. This time the leak is related to Diablo 3, which suggests that a new expansion for the game might be revealed at the event.
An image was uploaded by to the Blizzard Gear Store, which was taken down quickly. The image showcases male and female Necromancers with a large number of summoned minions. This image suggests that a new expansion for Diablo 3 will include a female Necromancer along with a male one.
However, Necromancers in Diablo 3 and in the artwork for the game have always been male, but one of the Diablo books do feature a female Necromancer. Checkout the leaked artwork below.
The artist behind this artwork is John , who has joined Blizzard Entertainment as an art director in January. Also it is rumored that Mueller, has taken the position of Lead World Designer on Diablo series after the departure of Leonard Boyarsky.
However, it has not been confirmed by Blizzard Entertainment, and the quick removal of this artwork could suggest that a new expansion for Diablo 3 might be revealed at Blizzcon 2016 which will add two new Necromancers.
However, this artwork could be for Diablo 4, which will introduce a female Necromancer to the series, as there are rumors that Diablo 4 might be revealed at Blizzcon. According to a Youtuber, he was recently gifted a Blizzcon promo pack, which included some goodies, one of which was a D4, a four-sided die.
The dice instead of having three “1” s printed on the die like a normal four sided die does, this one had two “1” s and a single “4”.
So, what do you think? Will Blizzard Entertainment reveal a new expansion for Diablo 3 or Diablo 4 will be revealed? Let us know in the comments.
