Blizzard Tease - Updated

A new Blizzard Entertainment teaser page is online for your teasing pleasure (thanks Gamer's Hell). Is it a tease of an imminent announcement? Are those runes? Is a Diablo III announcement coming? Or is this a Rorschach test? I think I see a bunny, or is that a football helmet? How many question marks are in this story? And what about Naomi? Presumably some of these questions will be answered soon. Update: IncGamers say they have solved this mystery, saying the image is "a dead ringer for a rune seen on Arthas' sword, Frostmourne in another picture." So the image seems to relate to World of Warcraft, rather than Diablo III or some other game, though it is still not clear what the image signifies.

"Man this is sad. Rumors, teasing, and everyone frothing at the mouth. Blizzard has made you all their bitch."

Looks like you were proven WRONG once again.

Am I the only one who sees a human in a space-like helmet? The "rune" is a targeting HUD over one eye.

Do you see the figures of religious icons in your walls too?

Yeh. They'll be announcing the relase date for the WoW expansion AND details on the Collectors Edition for sure. I'd bet Zeph's virginity on it.

cool pic. (the ragnoras fiery one)

As mentioned, the very same teaser on worldofwarcraft.com kind of settles the argument...WOTLK and the collector's edition of it.

Perhaps, but if this was for Diablo III wouldn't the artwork look something like this

I find it hilarious that EVERYONE wants this to be Diablo III to the point where they see hell in an image that clearly is not about Hell.

Like Sifter said, maybe hell hath frozen over!

The artwork looks like the ice structure on the bottom of the WOTLK website.

http://www.worldofwarcraft.com/wrath/

I'm going to assume this teaser is Blizzard's way of say the official launch date for the expansion is coming soon.

Edit: I find it hilarious that EVERYONE wants this to be Diablo III to the point where they see hell in an image that clearly is not about Hell. LOL

Edit 2: By the way when you visit http://www.worldofwarcraft.com/ you are greeted with the same splash art. So yeah Blizzard is going to announce the official launch date in six days... or sometime after their convention.

They might have simply reused some art from their WotLK materials for this - the runes aren't really prominent enough to believe that they're meant to be the focus.

Oh, and as someone pointed out, there were a bunch of runes in Diablo II.

I got a Zod rune once, then never found an item worth putting it in. Made me sad...

A few points of evidence aim towards Diablo 3.

Blizzard never do teaser announcements or build ups to any of their expansions.

Blizzard very recently took over the domain name of Diablo3.com

There are 6 days remaining until June 29th: The last day of the invitational, the date both Diablo 2 and Lord of Destruction was released in 2000 and 2001.

There is no logical reason to tease something they have already announced (they have never done so before)

Hell hath frozen over...

Diablo 2 also had lots of runes, not just Arthas' sword

But who knows except Blizzard? We shall all see in 6 days eh? ;-)

worldofwarcraft.com showed the Starcraft 2 tease splash screen as well, so that means nothing.

Is they will announce the Collectors Edition of the expansion, plus announce the free stuff given out at BlizCon.

Hey Blue, a couple weeks back...I was just teasing about the weekly Diablo 3 rumors. You didn't actually need to make it a weekly thing

This is what week 4 or 5 in a row with a D3 rumor?
