SBFordSBFord Associate Editor - News ManagerThe CitadelPosts: 19,545MMORPG.COM Staff Rare

Blizzard has sent out a cryptic notice that a 'special announcement' will be made at this year's Gamescom in late-August. "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." 

The event itself will take place on the first day of Gamescom, August 21, at 11:30 a.m. local time. Gamescom takes place August 21-25 in Cologne, Germany.

    Given that line I doubt it has anything at all to do with WoW.

     

    D3 expac announcement seems way more likely.

    Probably the next expansion. I just hope it's better than the last two...

    Honestly just by that text, it sounds far more Diablo 3 related. My assumption is a D3 expansion in an attempt to gain back players. Something not to many probably will pay attention to unless there is sweeping changes, and even less for US players unless something is done to remedy the fact the economy is broken after they refused to roll back from their glitch leaving things over inflated like no tomorrow due to that excess gold.

    Agreed, sounds very Diablo oriented. And we can only hope they learned from their initial mistakes with D3. D2 really only became next level when LoD was released, hopefully the D3 xpac will be just as game changing.

    Except that D3...a year later...has 1 million unique logins per day, and 3 million unique per month...im sure many people will pay attention to it.

    Yeah this obviously has nothing to do with World of Warcraft.  This is an announcement about Diablo.

    Hearthstone seems like the logical guess since it's a WoW announcement and MoP is still pretty new.

    Let me guess, going FTP.

    Defo D3 expac - they need to get something out there before EQN takes over the interweb new channels for the next 4 weeks.

    As some have already stated, this sounds very much like a D3 announcement. My money is on an x-pac.

    Announce it at Gamescon, show it off for realz at Blizzcon.

    I want a mmorpg where people have gone through misery, have gone through school stuff and actually have had sex even. -sagil

    Shush, quit with that 'facts' stuff :P

  • widginwidgin Providence, RIPosts: 11Member

    Wild guess here. WoW is coming to consoles. :)   

     

    Since the announcement is not coming at Blizzcon, then it's most likely not WoW related. I'll go with the D3 Xpac crowd.
