So from the looks of the ending, this is a definative end.


Are all the expansions gonna be "gaiden chapters" or side stories? I see no way for them to continue the universe now that Diablo is dead for good.

With this revelation, do you think the expansions will not be a Act V or VI but rather a bonus chapter or something, something not unlike what Bethesda did for new vegas.

There is already a game based on Dante's inferno. Even with Blizzard's imagination, still would not be that great.

He has already been "dead for good". Metzen said that there will be future Diablo sequels, but only he knows how the story is going to progress.

He's been the end boss of three games. I'm honestly getting a bit tired of him. Yeah, he's in the title and all, but he's actually kinda bland as a villain.

I wholeheartedly agree, but I guess some would be disappointed to find no Diablo in a Diablo game.

I'll only say that I expected better of Mephisto.

That sounds like some Chris Avellone-level writing, in terms of tying story with game mechanics.

I hope we can fight some angel as boss.

Or let Mephisto collect power by using the 6 shards of his soulstone.

Well, there are still some unresolved plots.

-Is there a way to bring back Leah?
-Did we really see the Black Soulstone dissolve in the end?
-What happened to Malthael?
-How does Imperius fare and will he accept mortal Tyrael in the council?
-What happens in the Burning Hells, now that the 7 Evils are gone? That's an immense power vacuum to fill.
-Exactly who the fuck is Covetous Shen?? His backstory is certainly the most intriguing. He almost reminds me of Tom Bombadil. Might he be Annu reborn?

One of my many mancrushes.

He's well regarded as one of the best game writers in the industry, having worked on what some (including myself) consider to be the best RPG ever, Planescape: Torment

Through, to be fair, it's very likely that they'll do side stories instead of sequel x-packs AKA: All X-packs take place before the battle of Heaven, through. There may be a ritual to revive Leah but it will be as short add-on or an epilogue, or she stays dead.

There are many good concepts for a new xpack they can use(ie: Ureh).

Inarius deserves his own game, and apparently Imperius is dead.

No.
He does appear in the act four as a boss but there's no story attached to it. He just gets thrown into the mix for the hell of it.

Damn, he could play a more important role.

So that left Inarius alone to manage his revenge.

Persoanally, I hope they bring Leah back and make Maltheal or Adria the expansion villain.

Its funny watching the making of stuff. And Metzen is just jazzing out over the female Diablo idea. And you get the impression everyone else is just "Yeah...." but can't say anything.

I stated in the other the Thread it seems like Leah recovery is up next some how.

Question having not played the game yet is Tyrael the only PoV character left at the end?

They can use an angel as the final boss of the xpc.

A possible expansion that EXTENDS past the ending should have Malthael being corrupted by the Black Soulstone and teaming up with Adria.

Crossed Swords (War2)

What class or classes do you think they'd add in an expac?

No class makes extensive use of shields so something like a Knight might be likely.
