World of Warcraft: Chronicle (or simply the Warcraft Chronicle) is a series that attempts to codify, tighten up and clarify the history of Warcraft.[1] There are three volumes.[2] Information that is left out from the Chronicles and originate from canon sources is still considered canon.[3]

Chronicle is the "Warcraft Book of Cain" that was first mentioned by Chris Metzen at the Mists of Pandaria launch party in 2012,[4] which refers to the book released alongside Diablo III that covered the Diablo universe's lore. According to Micky Neilson, the book is like a bible with illustrations.[5] Chronicle is checked by internal readers and Blizzard's historians.[6]

Matt Burns hinted on several occasions that there may be more volumes in the future,[7] but for now, the third volume is the final one. The third book, like the first two, ends with "To be continued..."

Possible future subjects

These subjects were stated to be possibly covered in future volumes.

Notes

  • The lore section of the Warcraft III: The Frozen Throne game manual is also called "Chronicle."
  • Chronicle is part of the game continuity and should not be confused with the tie-in novel to the movie.[32]
  • According to Matt Burns, Chronicle Volume 2 has a very high-up view of the first great wars compared to the original games so their unmentioned battles and events still could have happened.[33][34] Furthermore, some events in Chronicle Volume 3 were left out due to already being told in other books/manuals.[35]
