Does This Latest Update Prove Diablo III? (Or Not??)

Let the Blizzard tease continue! A second image has been added on the icy splash site, adding to speculation that Blizzard is going to announce Diablo III this weekend. Previously, the frosty teaser showed an image that looked a hell of a lot like a rune on Frostmourne, previously feature in Wrath of the Lich King teasers. That was kind of a Diablo III killjoy! Now, there's further speculation that the first image might be the "Shael" rune from Diablo II instead of being Frostmourne. And some folks are now saying that the second and new image looks like a duplicate of a "Hel" Diablo II rune. All this is someone else's speculation — we don't know! So like don't go get your hopes up or anything silly.

More people seeing things! Reader yofu adds: "The artwork from the splash page has a clear 3 on it, not to mention if you look "through" the ice you can see what looks like veins of lava." We're pretty sure if you stare hard enough you can see Abraham Lincoln too, but that's just us. Never mind us!

@VGJ:

Well, Blizzard has been known to shake things up, so it's not ENTIRELY unheard of...

But it's too close to WoW to be Diablo. Even Starcraft doesn't fit the bill. Ice is a WoW thing, sad to say.

Damn it, Blizzard, stop fucking with us and get Diablo 3 out. Cancel Starcraft 2 if you have to. Korea will manage.
