Diablo Timeline and Chronology

Blizzard took the world by storm (no pun intended) with their highly successful Diablo games in 1996 and 2000. Now there’s much more to take you into this world, including novels, comics, and of course, Diablo III.

What’s on the Diablo Timeline?

This Diablo Timeline takes all of the canon media that is part of the Diablo series and places it in chronological order. This includes the three games and their expansions, as well as several books, comics, and even a few in-universe books (placed at the end). While only consisting of three games, there is actually quite a lot to process. We hope you enjoy diving into the Diablo universe.

Where to Start?

If you’re new to the games, we recommend starting with Diablo III, which is the most accessible to modern audiences. But if you’ve played the games and want to dive into the lore, we recommend starting at the beginning.

As always, if you see anything you think should change, drop us a note on our Facebook page. And if you enjoyed this timeline, you might enjoy some of our others, such as the Doom timeline.
