    One convention hall per major franchise? Hmmm....

    It's getting more obvious by the minute.

    Yea because before the two halls were for Warcraft and Starcraft....now they opened up another. LOL it would suck if it was for a completely new game hehehe :D

    So now we've got rumors started for two major events in the same year. Wonder which one will actually announce what we want announced. Maybe they'll announce it at the WWI and then have displays and such at Blizzcon '08?

    I agree, this it is a very good sign (cue giddy laughter).

    However, I hope this doesn't mean there won't be a DIII announcement in June. I don't want yet another wait before we get our lovin'.

    Yeah 2007 all over again... lol well at least this time I'll be actively taking part in rumor-hyping >

    Lol anyway, 3 convention halls must mean Lost Vikings is back!

    Excelent :)
    BLIZZ U crafty mutherfuckkerz!

    It feels good after all theas years to finally have proof that Diablo 3 will be announced :)

    I could be wrong here but were the Blizzcons used to just present what they have worked on to the public, after they had the WWI?

    Blizzcon 1 about WoW 1?
    Blizzcon 2 about Starcraft 2?
    Blizzcon 3 about Diablo 3?

    Note* I could be totally wrong.

    Ah I hope it's actual hands on stuff. I won't be able to go either way, but I think it would really suck if they announced it at WWI then just had videos and trailers at Blizzcon. That'd be a sure sign that D3 is still several years away :(

    heh, really good sign indeed, everything is pointing at an announcement this year, an announcement in june could very well make all the diablo addicts rush into blizzcon to try out the game, they would sell tickets like hell.

    Probably the WoW expansion and Starcraft 2. But we can all keep our fingers crossed. Damn, when will they bring this thing to the east coast?!

    If they announce a new game instead of Diablo 3 this year, I'lll officially say "Fuck you, Blizzard."

    This one was enough to bring me out of squatting and actually in to the conversation. I've been playing D2 in spurts since release and am super happy to have found a community that is still active and devoted to the game. I'm just as excited/hopeful for a D3 announcement as everyone else, but to protect my hopes and dreams I remain a skeptic on this one.

    Can anyone confirm (by way of actually having been there) that last year Blizzcon devoted one hall to WoW and one to SC2? Until I know for certain that that was the case I'm still chalking the extra hall up to WoW's mad popularity.
