In the past months, Blizzard have been hiring game developers that are DotA fans:

http://www.blizzard.com/us/jobopp/designer...r-3d-level.html

Now there's a splash screen at www.blizzard.com indicating that they are about to announce a new game this weekend at WWI. Can we expect this new game to be somehow related to DotA?

It would be awesome if they made an MMO with custom maps.

Chances are it's Diablo 3. They wouldn't be working on 2 RTS at once like this I think. Either that or they are taking the time to release information about Warcraft 4 much earlier than they did with Starcraft 2. SC2 was in development since 2003 (after WC3 was released), and only news was released about it in 2007.

People have been waiting for Diablo 3 for some time and it's a different genre of game.

But has Blizzard announced that it's working on a new MMO game? I'd figure they would be quite busy with WoW and making that a great game and continually making expansions for it.

Firstly, the hiring is basically anyone, where the hell do you see "...have been hiring game developers that are DotA fans"? It could be anyone. Also, is it just me or the splash screen is just a piece of ice and doesn't show anything else?

We would also like for this candidate to have excellent analytical understanding of competitive online play with various Blizzard Entertainment games and mods (real-time strategy, World of Warcraft, Defense of the Ancients, etc.).


There.
I'm hoping for Diablo III/World of Starcraft/Starcraft: Deathmatch

http://pc.ign.com/articles/883/883597p1.html

it is more than a piece of ice

it could just be wrath of the lich king, but it doesn't make sense to make a teaser about a game they've already announced

i guess the only thing we can do is speculate until the WWI

Too soon for d3 as WOW is still pretty popular. Though as a d2 fan, I'm hoping for a d3 in the future.. Possibly 2010?

I'm betting it's Diablo 3/World of Diablo, which is what I said last time before they announced Starcraft 2 but meh, I've got better odds this time happy.gif Seems pretty coincidental that they recently claimed the diablo3.com domain from the fansite owners, and have updated Diablo 2 to not require CD verifications opening up the possibility of selling it online (to exploit the announcement of D3 of course biggrin.gif).

Also, they've updated the splash screen on the official site by the way, looks like they're going to torture everyone by slowly melting the ice day by day tongue.gif

EDIT - Also this: http://www.diablofans.com/forums/showthread.php?t=8623 relating to the second picture.

Ice looks like Wrath of the Lich King, however folks have spotted Diablo II's rune symbols in some of the ice pics. Oh well, I'd wait for the weekend.

This better be Diablo 3. The last thing we need is another MMO.

Sadly I would be utterly flabbergasted if Diablo 3 isn't going to be pay to play, I figure Blizzard (or Activision) would have become quite fond of their ivory towers of solid gold.
