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.
