I think they are announcing a couple of XBox 360 exclusives, starting with Starcraft 2, as a result of being bought by Microsoft.

There, now ANYTHING else will be welcome news :)

Mebbe they are showing us symbols from each of their big game franchises because they're about to announce a totally new game! With a new setting! So the ice is like hell freezing over, because Blizzard is trying something new!
They showed off all their games at the Starcraft 2 announcement, so...

So far the pictures apparently all come from the same number series as in "Lost"... more and more food for World of Lost Vikings!

I tried assembling what we have so far and right now it looks like some sort of purple walrus thing. Prob'ly Blizzard screwing around with us.

Oh, and there's this on 1up.com: "Five reason we think Diablo 3 will be announced" http://www.1up.com/d...ory?cId=3168404

Sorry, I never know how to set up links on this forum.

It's starting to look like it may be their revolutionary new Seed: Creature Maker.

I'm hoping that it will be Diablo III, but the fact that three of the runes so far correspond to Blizzard's three major franchises has me a tiny bit confused...

Blackthorne II! Alright!  :happy:

Bouncing around various forums today, it looks like nobody has figured out what the latest rune is.  I'm really surprised.  I checked the new image early this morning and that solar-system symbol immediately rang a bell for me, but I just couldn't place it.  I figured for sure by the time I was home from work somebody would've dug it up.

New day, same game. The splash picture now shows some very obvious eyes. The new picture (called "harbinger") is numbered 08, which fits the Lost number theory.

I've seen the penguin before.. But I don't know where...

Regarding the runes, there is one for warcraft, starcraft, diablo, blizzard and "all the rest" (Vikings, Pax Emperia, andsomeothergame). They are doing the same as with the Starcraf 2 announcement..

But that head in the middle... The eyes are straight on the old Diablo head on the CD-cases.

Yup. From today's home page I'd say something very evil has escaped it's ancient, cold prison to wreak havoc on the world. Diablo III is sounding more and more like it's the right guess.

on the other hand, it also looks quite a lot like protoss eyes. I say that Blizzards art style is very consistent across the board... it helps them with their whole ambiguity thing.

That pic is obviously Gonzo's evil twin who teleported up to Pigs in Space during an ion storm.  I think we are dealing with a Star Trek MMORPG with Muppets playing the various roles.

No mention of Pigs in Space is complete without the necessary, err, "link" ... no pun intended.
