Blizzard Teases Gamers with "Big News"; Diablo III Rumors Getting More Heated

The internet is abuzz today with more speculation regarding Dibalo III all because Rob Pardo stating that “big news” is coming during this weekend’s Blizzard Worldwide Invitational in Paris, and it has many gamers and gaming sites jumping back onto the Diablo III bandwagon.

This is not the first time this has happened. Remember last year when it was rumored that Diablo III would be announced at Blizzcon?

During a Q&A session at the GDC in Paris this morning, Pardo was asked if he could talk about “the new game” that has gamers gagging at the possibility of it being Diablo III. Laughingly he stated:

“So you want me to announce the game before our announcement? No offense, but I think there’s like 300 people here, and I’ll be ripped apart by 8000 people there [at the Invitational] if I pre-announce it – but it’s going to be really exciting. I think everybody here will be really excited about the announcement.”

If you take into account what a UK industry insider, who wished to remain anonymous (due to loosing their job possibly), told VG247 – the game is definitely Diablo III. Then, another highly-placed European source told VG247 that they are “sure” that Diablo III will be revealed on Saturday afternoon.

Add to this the splash images that Blizzard has been posting which the folks over at RPGWatch provide links for, while Shacknews’ readers are speculating that the puzzle-piece imagery is nothing more than a Wrath of the Litch King screen… it is enough to make your head spin.

Where the hell are Mulder and Scully when you need them?

Whatever the announcement is, Saturday is the day folks – and hopefully we can either look forward to the major cheers of joy and “partying in the streets” mentality we will feel if it IS INDEED Diablo III or if not – we will finally (hopefully) be able to put the D3 rumors out to pasture with Jimmy Hoffa.

They will tell us Saturday and then release the game in 2010. The SC2 hype burnt out after a few months as will this.
