    Day 4 of the Blizzard image series. Getting pretty interesting. :)

    You gotta admit, that's one bad ass quote.

    "Day 2" of our pre-release events. :)

    It appears that Blizzard will be announcing a new game to their lineup, very soon. Speculation about this game is high and indecisive, mainly due to their recent occurances (above) on their site.

    Thanks Reign.[/glow]

    Last time they announced a game (SCghost) they put a little hints into the timer which counted down to the announcement. Cort got the pattern, and determined Ghost before it was announced. Anyone want to try and see if they can maybe see something in the background of the image or something. Maybe there is a hint hidden.

    There are two images, the top which responds to which day (today is day1) bottom is timeline which will remain constant or so it seems. Tommorow will be Diablo. After that will be SC and SC BW. After SC will be Diablo II and LoD. Afterwards, ROC and TFT. After the final warcraft rts, WoW and TBC. So what I think it will either be diablo 3, or starcraft 2 since not counting expansion packs, warcraft series took 3 games. Diablo has 2, and SC has 1 (2 counting ghost). If you want to know what I'm getting at, notice how warcraft reached the 3 rts before the others. So it will either be diablo 3 to conclude the diablo mmo, or starcraft 2 to balance out the series.

    Just my thoughts.

    Yeah. That's why the scrapped SC:G. They knew it was going to suck so they bailed on it and was like "hahaha, that never existed!"

    The background looks like space. Escpecially the timeline, I see little stars.

    Edit: but theres something in the background behind the diablo. It looks like either Kerrigan hair or Diablo claws. :(

    Edit 2: New release game name was leaked!

    I've been messing around with it in PS and AFAICT it's just a little easteregg they put it. Theres no clear picture as to what it is regardless of how I manip it.

    Though, it does look a lot like one of the pictures of Diablo I've seen...

    edit: [​IMG]

    Couldn't find a bigger picture of it, but it's a picture they released by one of the artists they contracted. His claws in this pic look pretty much exactly like the background.

    Check the first image, of WC. It is different than the second, from Diablo. The background is nothing more than that, a background. I'm sure SC will probably have an hydralisk as background.
