This year’s Blizzard’s Worldwide Invitational is special – Blizzard has merged with Activision, StarCraft 2 is playable and approaching Beta status, Diablo 3 is going to be revealed and Wrath of the Lich King has been in the barrel for a year.
Three Universes are undergoing major changes, and 2008’s WWI is a great place and time for announcements. A lot of hype surrounds the event, partly due to the fact that Blizzard has been playing with the gamers’ minds over the last 5 days via a changing splash screen which can easily be a teaser for any of the three games.
The image can turn out to look Protoss, Lich King or even Diablo, so not only has Blizzard not revealed anything, but the Internet has been flooded with fan-made images of the eventual result.
UPDATE: Regardless of the purpose of the splash screen, Diablo 3 has been officially announced – head over to Blizzard’s site for the hot intro.
But SC2Blog is first of all a SC2 Blog, and WWI has to deliver only one thing to make the effort, money and time spent worth it – the much anticipated StarCraft 2 Beta key.
