I have a feeling it would be an anouncment about star craft 2, though the little stuff in War craft III was just a modification on war craft. so who knows

It is Blizzard so it will not be disappointing.

They seem to take a bit of time and always create great products

It's probably a countdown to a new website. They probably just redesigned their site and want to make a big production about it.

They said they would announce a new game at Tokyo Game Show. And Tokyo Game Show starts the 20th.

Couple rumors I heard about the new game:

* Not a sequel, but rather a new franchise?

* Not a PC game, but console-only?

Hopefully it is a sequel to Blackthorne. That is still my favorite game from Blizzard.

Blackthorne was one of the greats for the SNES. The game had a really great dark and gritty atmosphere. It also had some nice graphics and great gameplay for its time. I liked to ability to hide from the enemies in the shadows and of course it was always fun to blow away the chained up prisoners after speaking with them.

I've also heard rumors that the Blizzard announcement was going to be for a console. If that is true, my guess would be an Xbox game.

***imagines a Blackthorne sequel on a next-generation console***

Blackthorne was pretty good, but it was no Out of This World, Flashback, or Prince of Persia.

If that is the type of game Blackthorne was, I'm glad I never played it. Out of the World was just awful, imo. PRince of Persia was okay, and Flashback I didn't bother finishing.

I remember finishing Out of Theis World twice just because I couldn't believe the payoff for finishing it was as weak as it was. It was

kvrdave: I'll grant you OotW isn't everyone's cup of tea. But you're on crack for your comments about Flashback and the two PoP's.

Yeah, they've had that domain for awhile. It doesn't mean anything.

www.warcraft.com has the same countdown.

I've been hearing people say that Bill Roper had said that Starcraft 2 wasn't in development. Who knows.

Since they're announcing it at the Tokyo Game Show instead of ETCS, I'm betting it's a console game. If the picture on the website has anything to do with the new game, it could be a FPS in the Starcraft universe.
