Diablo I got the retcon stick? [Spoilers?]

Lore and Story
In the first Diablo it is mentioned that Albrecht is the only son of Leoric, and now we have a second son, Aidan in the picture. Did I miss an announcement where Blizzard clarified that some things were being changed? Or did Blizzard hope this one would slip by unnoticed?
This change in the Warrior given the identity of Aiden as King Leoric's older son been known quite a long while - since the last Diablo press event back in August 2011.

  • In the Book of Cain it is specifically stated that Aidan is not the warrior but a seperate character entirely.

    No it's not. Aidan is the Warrior is the Dark Wanderer

    If you still think that then you obviously haven't read it.

    "In addition to the rogue and the sorcerer, there were others who like Aidan, were warriors trained in all manner of weapons and armor. These combatants embodied strength and resilience but had little to no knowledge of magic."

    "The group of adventurers wore the demon down, and ultimately it was Aidan who delivered the killing blow-..."

    According to Blizz's ret-con; Aidan IS a warrior but still completely seperate from what was the playable Warrior. The credit for slaying Leoric and Diablo, and becoming the Dark Wanderer are passed completely to Aidan.
    Morrigan you are quite dense. The Wanderer is revealed to be the one who stuck the soulstone in his head to contain Diablo at the end of Diablo 1. AKA Aidan. AKA You, the player.

    I don't care what some book says, those have been shown to be factually wrong in the past... (Red shirt guy anyone?)

    If it's designated to be officially canon, then "some book" actually does matter.

    Lol, you do know that in the argument posed by "red shirt guy" the book was correct and the game was actually incorrect. So you say you don't care about what some "official" book says and then reference an instance where the book is shown to be the correct lore. Therefore, your argument is invalid...

    :)
    Touche Morrigan :)

    I take back my statement about you being dense.
