You'll have to excuse this somewhat short update to our original post, but Blizzard has confirmed that they will be showing something interesting and new at PAX East. I asked a Blizzard representative if the invite was to see and play DIablo 3, and I was told this is something different.

"As mentioned in the invite, this is a little something, different from what we've previously announced or talked about, and not a sequel, etc," I was told. I also confirmed that Diablo 3 will be at PAX East, but again, this is something different.

This is fascinating. It's different than what the company has talked about, it's not a sequel, and it's different from what was previously announced. So what does that leave? Some have guessed that we'll see Blizzard All-Stars, but that's something that was previously announced. So what's left?

Here's the original invitation text: "We've been working on a little something, different from our other games, and we're pleased to invite you to be the first to see it. It's not a sequel, expansion, or that rumored next-gen MMO, but it's something we're excited for you to get your hands on." So the new information is basically just a repetition of what we already knew, but they did confirm that this is distinct from the playable version of DIablo 3.

Okay, that's all I have to go on. I'm curious for your thoughts: what do you think we're going to see?

I've gotta admit, if this was 4 or 5 years ago, I would have been really excited about this. However, either I've outgrown their titles or they are not the same studio they were in my youth. Either way, I'm mildly curious about what it is, but I'm just apathetic to pretty much everything that they release.

I'm definitely very interested. I wish it was a Diablo 3 expansion, but since the base game isn't even a year old and they take forever on everything that's probably a ways out.

I'm hoping it's Starcraft: Ghost.

Expectations dropped into the toilet after that, honestly.

I don't know of a game Blizzard is associated with that is more anticipated than "Titan". Seriously.

So, after reading that as well as the fact that they keep saying it's a "little something", I'm expecting a murloc bottle opener or Thrall spandex workout pants.

It's definitely not going to be some massive large scale project like their other big IP's, but that's fine with me.

If it is, I will start to wonder just how much influence Activision has over them.

Over the years I've looked at them as being fiercely independant, regardless of any deals with Activision or anyone else. For them to resurrect a title they dumped at the last minute because it didn't meet their standards - it just seems a little fishy to me. I can imagine an Activision executive seeing the remnants of Ghost, pitching an idea to tie that with Black Ops 3 (even more futurey), and before you know it we've got an ActiBlizzard futuristic StarCrafty version of CoD that comes out with a yearly title and DLC map packs.

I would also accept the long-awaited Lost Vikings sequel or a good remake of Rock 'n' Roll Racing (that game was awesome.)

It's odd that they would be announcing this at PAX instead of Blizzcon since it's back this November. I guess this way the Blizzcon goers could see more of it though.

I'm guessing this won't be a huge announcement or anything, if it is even a game that will be released. It could just be a concept for something bigger and they are looking to get more feedback on it or even just give people a glimpse at what could be coming down the pipeline.

I have a feeling it is going to be Blizzard All-Stars. That game where they are gonna have different characters from each of their franchises battle it out in a League of Legends format. It is not a new game, but it has fallen off the face of the earth since it was announced.

Really hoping Blizzard does announce something new however. Hoping StarCraft: Ghost. I wonder if "Project: Blackstone" has anything to do with this?

Can't tell if serious...
