Sin War Q&A, Diablo 3 Teasers
7:56 AM | Cord Kruse | 9 comments

Blizzplanet has released the transcript of their recent Q&A with fantasy author Richard Knaak about his latest Diablo novel, The Sin War Book 1: Birthright. Among other things Knaak mentioned the novel's ties to the long awaited Diablo 3, and hinted that the eventual release of the third game in the series is very likely.

Birthright, the first in the Sin War trilogy, takes place three thousand years before the darkening of Tristam and follows the difficulties of a simple farmer caught between the forces of light and darkness as he struggles with newfound powers. Lilith, a villain introduced in the 1.11 patch for Diablo 2: Lord of Destruction, has a prominent role in the trilogy.

Q - Rathi: Any information on Diablo 3? Have you been asked to write a further story?
A - Knaak: What happens in the Sin War is significant, as I mentioned, toward the future. I know that Blizzard is very eager to make Diablo fans happy.

Q - Medievaldragon: How much of the book is creation of yours, and how involved is Chris Metzen behind the canon storyline of Diablo: The Sin War Trilogy? Do you think the ramifications of this book impact in the storyline of Diablo 3 the game?
A - Knaak: This is a pure collaboration between myself and Chris/Blizzard. All that is written is passed by him and the others there. This will be canon and has adjusted earlier info. The ramifications here will be used for any future project...and I ain't writing for a dead game.

Q - Deathshade|EU: So... Diablo 3?
A - Knaak: I am not writing for a dead world...but a world with dead. 'nuff said!
