So here’s one you may not have seen coming. It turns out Blizzard is getting into the publishing business with novels, manga, colouring books and more coming our way in the future. Dubbed Blizzard Publishing (innovative name right?), the new label has set out to create new titles and recreate old out-of-print titles surrounding the lore of Warcraft, Diablo and Starcraft alike, all in a bid to create a richer and deeper experience for all of those who want to get a little more immersed into Blizzard.
With a slightly modest selection so far, they have started off with previously published novels such as Warcraft: The Last Guardian, Warcraft: Lord of the Clans and World of Warcraft: Rise of the Horde, as well as manga titles such Warcraft Legends Volumes I & II and other various art books including, you heard it right, a colouring book for anyone keen to colour in some ogres anytime soon or even The Official Cookbook of World of Warcraft, the book no kitchen can live without.
Apparently these novel and manga series will be expanded into the Diablo and Starcraft universe at some point in the future if Warcraft isn’t your cup of tea, while art and sketch books from all of Blizzard titles will be coming to a coffee table near you very soon, for instance with a Hearthstone selection set in Blizzard's sights.
If interested why not check out their website, otherwise, what do you think about this latest move from Blizzard? Are you an avid fan and might look into actually purchasing some of these books? Or maybe you’re a fan, but still aren’t going to jump at the less than cheap price tag Blizzard are asking for these books? Or possibly you’re not a fan at all and think it’s a load of baloney.
