Blizzard’s “special announcement” at Gamescom

What’s up boys and girls! My morning just got better with news coming from Blizzard that they will be having a very special announcement in store for us at this year’s Gamescom on August 21-25 in Cologne, Germany. As some of you might remember this will also be the exact event where EA will reveal their fourth installment of the Sims series.

Rumors are now swirling around the net especially within the Diablo fanbase (including myself) that this is going to be an announcement regarding Diablo 3’s first expansion confirmed last year. Blizzard was kind enough to drop some subtle hints on what the announcement would be with a message sent along with press invitations:

“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.”

I knew it, finally they’re going to reveal a new Starcraft game! LOL kidding aside, this message alone almost confirms an announcement definitely tied to the Diablo franchise. Expansion or not, if that wasn’t enough to excite any Diablo fan then I don’t know what would! This would probably explain the upcoming release of the much anticipated “Book of Tyrael” following the success of “Book of Cain.”

                        “Book of Tyrael is set to hit shelves this October”

Watch out in a few weeks as Gamescom nears for more news on this matter and all other cool stuff as we cover news from the event as they unfold.
