A piece of leaked art may be pointing to the announcement of a new class for Diablo 3.
The art (via Eurogamer) was reportedly seen on the Blizzard Gear Store, and shows similar-looking male and female characters with what seem to be raised corpses. The filename for the art was “Necromancer,” hinting at the fact that we may receive an announcement during Blizzcon for a Necromancer class in Diablo 3. Though the image was pulled from the site, it does bear the signature of Blizzard art director, John Mueller.
Last month, rumors began circulating that Blizzard will be announcing Diablo 4 at Blizzcon this weekend. The rumors were fueled by a limited edition goody bag that fans can buy to celebrate this year’s event. Inside the bag are a number of Diablo themed die. Among them is a die with two 1’s and a 4. This is believed to represent 11/4, or November 4th, the day that Blizzrd’s convention begins.
Diablo 3 is available on PC, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, and Xbox One. Blizzcon will take place November 4-5 at the Anaheim Convention Center. 2016 marks the 20th anniversary of the Diablo franchise, and Blizzard may be making a big announcement for the series at Blizzcon this coming weekend.
