Blizzard traditionally doesn’t go to major gaming events. It has its own one, BlizzCon… but 2013 has seen the studio buck its own trend. Hearthstone was announced at PAX East, and now it seems something big is in the works for this year’s Gamescom as well.
What could it be? Fans know that Blizzard has some big announcements in the pipeline – we’re waiting (im)patiently for news on Titan, potentially more about StarCraft II and maybe something nice for World of Warcraft. Then, of course, there’s the Diablo III expansion, which was promised to us late last year.
Messages are now doing the rounds, inviting distinguished guests to join Blizzard at a special press conference and dropping a significant hint about what’s in store.
We’re making a special announcement that’s sure to capture the attention of the Heavens, Burning Hells and all the shadowed places that lie between.
Are we finally ready to se the next chapter in the Diablo saga?
Gamescom kicks off in Cologne, Germany, on August 21st and runs until August 25th. The Blizzard press conference is scheduled for the first day of the event, getting in nice and early. Stay tuned.
