Blizzard to Announce New Game

Post by KingKaramazov »

The Blizzard World Wide Invitational is one Saturday, in Paris. It has been confirmed that they are going to announce an entirely new game there, and the 'net has been buzzing with speculation.

There's a flash page that's being updated each day leading up to the announcement, with little teaser clues presumably related to the announcement.

Most people seem to think it's Diablo 3, but who knows? It could be a new Blackthorn game, WoW 2, or even an entirely new franchise. All I know is, I'm very excited to find out!

Chaos has some serious problems with his writing skills. He meant Warcraft IV.

Diablo 3 wouldn't be so interesting for me (Diablo was great, D2 was at least for myself only repitition). WOW i dislike too. Warcraft IV would be nice....., but i think too early for that.

Well, you know it's not Starcraft 2, that's been on the schedule for awhile.
Other evidence pointing towards a Diablo III announcement includes the Diablo3.com domain, now empty after previously directing to a Diablo community website. The domain was acquired by Blizzard last month.

WC IV could be interesting but I really didn't like WC III style, having to level up the hero in a rts? wth?


Diablo 2 was fun but nothing compared to WoW.


Btw congrats KK, 1000th post ^^

I won't give up AoE3 completely when SC2 comes out but let me tell you, I am going to play that game A LOT. Haha.

SC2 will be awesome.

I think Diablo 3 could be a great game too. AFter Hellgate became a huge disappointment, I'm not really optimistic about anybody but Blizzard making a worthy follow up to D2 in the hack and slash genre.

According to Diabloii.net, it's already certain that the announcement will be Diablo 3. But you never know....

Well yes Rascal but it was in game, and not game count based. You had to go kill treasure guardians (actually it's interesting how ES stole some ideas) for the hero to improve and level up and use crazy powers -.-

I've already left AOE3 but, I haven't left N3O. Of course you never know no rules saying it's illegal to come back or re-install.

AOE3 must be dying. More and more stretching of the non AOE3 game discussion rule.
