Will Deckard Cain die in D3?

While reading the journals and different information found while questing and wandering around, I thought this could be possible, what do you guys think?

It's highly likely, as Leah appears to be groomed to take over the roll of Deckard.
Not to mention she's the key new character in the Diablo III cinematics.

Then he won't come back in D4 because D3 is the last of the franchise


Fixed :P

*SPOILER PREDICTION*

My prediction is he will die pretty much right after the skeleton king dies. The reasons I think that it's probable are:

1) BIG SPOILERS after the skeleton king per blizzard. Beta won't go past it because of that.
2) Black Soulstone cinematic has Leah studying, trying to figure something out. She seems stumped. Instead of asking him for help, or Deckard doing the research himself, she asks him as if he's passed on, what she's missing.
3) No identify function from him - he has no function later in game. No screen shots of him being around later either.

And also since I made the prediction something else has come to light:

4) There's an animation for Deckard dying that's been datamined from the game. Could it be related to the April fools joke loremaster class? Yes, but since it's in the game files it could also happen.

I haven't looked at the animation myself, but I'm assuming it's just a character death animation. If that's the case, would it be possible that there's a quest somewhere where he could die if you fail, an escort mission of some sort, but it's not canon that he actually dies?

Alternatively, the death animation could be something they programmed to keep the game from breaking if something makes him die, regardless of whether or not they plan on having it be possible...

Agreed, the death animation might just be a fail-safe to prevent game crashes should that unlikely event occur.<br /><br />But I would also like to point out that the "death animation" doesn't necessarily mean he would die should that animation take place. It could be a "near death" experience, or perhaps he faints at one point. Lots of figureheads from previous Blizz games have a death animation embedded into the respective game's files, sometimes it's just used for the "near death" experience, sometimes just not used at all, just something to fill the slot of basic figure animations.
