Having peaced-out at the end of the 1996 original, the bow-wielding rogue hasn’t shown their face around Sanctuary for nearly a quarter of a century. Consider their stealth-imposed exile over—the rogue returns in Diablo IV.

Announced today during the BlizzCon 2021 keynote, Diablo IV’s rogue is a highly-customizable class that can fight with a bow and arrow like a ranger or step in and out of the shadows like a thief. Look for more information on the rogue’s return as BlizzCon continues.

Kind of hilarious that this ended up being the most unexpected announcement at the Blizzcon keynote. Burning Crusade Classic? Diablo 2 remaster? Barrens expansion for Hearthstone? We saw all of those coming a mile away. The Rogue for Diablo 4? Way out of left field. Looks like she’ll be a blend of Demon Hunter and Assassin, which should be interesting.
