Blizzard Upcoming Announcement?

Postby Lavarinth » Mon Jun 23, 2008 12:46 am

ONE MORE DAY, FOLKS

http://www.blizzard.com and http://www.battle.net lead you to the same icy cavern image. Perhaps.. Hell frozen over?

Dun, dun.. Duuuun...

(Image on Blizzard's splash as of June 27th, 2008)

UPDATE: I forgot to quote one vital thing from the July 2008 edition of PC Gamer in relations to what they would be releasing in the next month's issue: Next Month.. Have you ever had a secret that you're just dying to blurt out, but you can't for another month, and the stress of holding it in makes you want to do the pee-pee dance? That's what the PC Gamer staff is doing right now, because the August issue will be a chock-full of exclusives, including a top-secret cover story so huge we had to go [CENSORED] to get it. Just 30 more days now....

I'd also like to point out in a recent conference by Blizzard, only certain news reporting sites and magazines were invited, PC Gamer being one of them. Likely, the word "CENSORED" is "Hell."

UPDATE: Will be updating daily with newest image released by Blizzard.

UPDATE: Visit http://www.diablofans.com for more details towards the speculation that this is Diablo 3 related.

[00:55] Ascherzon: this image can be taken two ways
[00:56] Ascherzon: the diablo worldstone, which seems unlikely because that was red, or wotlk beta
[00:56] Lavarinth: Or.
[00:57] Lavarinth: Hell frozen over.
[00:57] Ascherzon: they announce an N64 version of lost vikings?
[00:58] Lavarinth: Hahaha

Yeah, I noticed it. Figured it was just a little doodle, no way to really point it to anything.

That can only be 1 of 2 things:

a) A protoss fart
b) The announcement of the SC2 release date

My theory is that more of the runes are added every day.

That's actually a good theory. Let's keep an eye on it.

I highly doubt it's the sc2 release date. Blizzard wouldn't give a release date in an alpha. At least, I'd hope not; they'd never meet it. :P

I gave the idea of Hell freezing over some thought and the prospect of Ghost making a comeback did cross my mind, though. But still.. that doesn't seem to be so much as "Hell freezing over" as something related to sc2 or diablo, though.

As much as I like Diablo 1 and 2, I'm not very interested in seeing Diablo 3. I'd rather see a new series of games, but... well, we all shall know it by the weekend. :P

I think its a sign that they are cold.  And they want us to send heaters.

While it may indeed be a name game it would be a bit odd. See if you have three strong franchises, why would you invest in creating a 4th new one, especially since it takes a lot more money to create a new franchise then go with an exsisting one. Creating name familiarity and all.

Then againt this is Blizzard. Oh and they have stuff like The Lost Vikings.

Well, seeing as virtually all of Diablo's staff is gone I'd rather see that franchise laid to rest for good. Diablo as a cartoon would... not fit. Even less than Starcraft as a cartoon, which doesn't fit at all.
