A screen capture of what appears to be a page from the digital version of the artbook has been posted on Twitter by @WeakAuras, the makers of the popular World of Warcraft addon of the same name. The page offers a short biography on the demon Lilith, who made just one brief appearance in the Diablo series so far, during Diablo II’s Pandemonium event.

The image then goes on to state “Lilith’s debut in Diablo IV is a re-imagining of her form that is far different from her previous appearance. Her new design represents ‘a great example of plussing,’ according to Art Director John Mueller, which is a collaborative process during which one artist takes another’s concept, affirms what he or she likes about it, and tries to add a cool new idea of his or her own.”
Following this text is an image of Lilith herself, depicted a horned, succubus-like demon encased in leather, with bat-like wings somewhat similar in design to those attached to Starcraft’s Kerrigan, Queen of Blades.
As always, leaks and rumors should be taken with a grain of salt, though this one appears more legitimate than most. While the image taken from the book gives no information on Lilith’s role in Diablo 4, it does seem to at least confirm that the game is in production. Most Blizzard fans have anticipated the announcement of Diablo 4 at this year’s BlizzCon for some time, especially considering the disaster of 2018’s Diablo Immortal announcement (Don’t you guys have phones?).
