Blizzard Posts Teaser for Next Title
9:16 AM | Michael Eilers | Comment on this story
For quite some time now, Blizzard Entertainment has been dropping egregious hints that they will be announcing a new title in September; they've even gone as far to schedule two press conferences for ECTS next week, including one on Sunday morning and one Monday. Among the various hints they have dropped so far (for those not following the trail of crumbs) are clues that the game will be very different than anything they have done before and that it will have nothing to do with the current Blizzard "franchises" of WarCraft, StarCraft or Diablo.
Blizzard's recent hiring frenzy is also adding fuel to the fire; they have been looking for 3D level designers with Quake 3 Arena and Unreal Tournament experience, and have also hired away a former id Software member in the recent past. No one has ever doubted that Blizzard is the master of hype in the video game world, but this time they very well may top themselves.
Today if you go the Blizzard web site, you will get a small "teaser" -- not much to go on, but we won't spoil your fun by telling you about it here. Just click.
Remember that IMG will have a staff member at ECTS to bring you live reports of all the action and announcements, so stay tuned -- we will even do weekend updates, so check back Saturday and Sunday as well. Of course you can always share your pre-announcement speculations in our Forums.
