Is that Diablo in the cinematic
Is it known that that is Diablo that showed up in the cinematic? It's just I don't remember hearing anything one way or the other from blizzard I do however remember hearing something in one of the vid clips from BlizzCon about how they were trying to tie in this game more to the books, trying to tie things together better, and for those who have read the Sin War Trilogy two of your major characters, Lucion and Lillith were the children of Mephisto, so maybe we are looking at Diablo's chip off the old block. Just a theory. --Wisdomseeker 03:50, 3 November 2008 (CET)
- That's very interesting. I have seen a lot of discussion behind this. I think that there is no official info out there, as far as I know anyway, but that we mostly just assume it's Diablo. They say it isn't a given fact Diablo will even be in the game, but in reality they kind of have to... That dude is so cool, he has to be Diablo ;) Even if the design is slightly different. For now I think we should count on that.

- Ok works for me I see your point, I mean on one hand we've already killed Diablo and then had him come back so it's definitely not out of the question. I however am hoping for something a little different, I'm not saying I won't play if the point is to get to the end and kill Diablo again but I would like to see a change of pace, and maybe a new end of game boss as a way of expanding the game to center around Sanctuary rather then the Lord of Terror. --Wisdomseeker 16:19, 3 November 2008 (CET)
- We'll see. I am betting on two expansions, to be honest, as [http:starcraftwire.net/ StarCraft 2] was so planned from the start as well. I'm pretty sure they can't avoid having Diablo in a Diablo game, but it isn't impossible that they perhaps make him a LOT more powerful, and more of a background character, like Titans in World of WarCraft. The only reason we killed him in D1 and D2 is that he was weakened. He is a Prime Evil, and with his full power, I'm sure mere adventurers can't kill him, really. --Leord 17:22, 3 November 2008 (CET)
