What could this be? Is that a burst of energy? Or cracking ice? What could it possibly mean?!

Some theories:

- The cracking ice represents a prison convict world. The game is clearly World of Blackthorne.

- The ice is melting on the frozen development of Starcraft Ghost - it will be a Wii exclusive with awesome waggle controls.

- Rock and Roll Racing on PSN with an ice planet filled with melting ice caps.

- The Lost Vikings find themselves lost again.... in the North Pole.


Discuss.

I want to believe it's Diablo-related, somehow, but I'm 90% sure it's just something for WoW.

It's just for Wrath of the Lich King. I don't think this is heralding a new game. But hopefully some new WotLK announcements (release date or closed beta).

It might just be for Blizzcon tickets about to go on sale.

Obviously the most likely candidate.

It was worth a shot!

It looks kind of like Khadarin crystals. The thing on the left could be a Protoss interface, or it could be a rune. Plus the crystal at the top looks kind of like a Protoss head.

Or it's just ice... :p

Edit: Actually, the crystals just below the head look like arms, and the entire thing looks quite like a zealot. I can even see legs. Hmm..

StarCraft Ghost running on next-gen hardware would be sweet.

But that'll never happen.

So, this is most likely Wrath of The Lich King.

This is NOT WoWTLK related. Because:

- Blizzard has NEVER teased a release date
- Blizzard has NEVER teased a beta start with a splash screen

http://us.media.blizzard.com/232309/_images/ice1.jpg


The 232309 stands for the 23 and 9 letter of the alphabet so:

23 letter = W
09 letter = I
== WWI ;)


Here is a colour inverted and sharpened version (thanks to jk32xzxk)




The sign on the middle left is the sign of the artist. You can find it on some of the released concept arts at the official site.

This is in the CSS file:

/*.tundra {background:url(_images/04.jpg) no-repeat 0 0} */

Okay, but what does that MEAN? Does it mean Diablo 3 or is it Starcraft 2 related?
It means this is a teaser for something they're announcing at the Blizzard Worldwide Invitational this year.

It means that Diablo III is coming out during 09/?/2323.

Or....

2/3 = .666666666.....
2/3 = .666666666.....

9 upside-down = 6.

The Worldwide Invitational is in Paris on 28th and 29th of June this year. That means they'll probably change the teaser every day until Saturday.

So we have come to the conclusion that the artwork represents an anus of infinite sadness for Diablo III then?

Ohhhhhh. So when is that, anyway?

EDIT: Gah, GAF is being really slow for me today, I see my question got answered before my post went through!

Even if it is Diablo 3 and Blizzard announced it tomorrow, saying they've already been working on it for 5 years, you all know, deep down in your hearts, we won't be playing it until 2012...

And I wouldn't even mind, because it would be the best game - ever.

So, this is obviously part of a bigger picture (which will be probably unveiled by changing the picture everyday) but what is it?

A purple man in a furcoat?
