    Blizzard has updated their main page with a countdown clock. 15 hours to go. Anyone have any guess at what the game might be? SC2?

    Yeah, it's probably Starcraft 2. It's too early for Diablo III. Or, it might be a new game altogether.

    It's a countdown to the announcement of a new game, they've already said that. They're announcing it at the Tokyo Game Show on the 20th (which is still the 19th in the US due to the time difference).

    My guess is Starcraft 2, though personally I'd prefer Diablo 3. I don't think it's too early to announce that... Diablo 2 came out over 2 years ago now, and I doubt whatever they announce today will be out this year.

    If it is a new Diablo game, I hope it's announced for consoles as well. I loved D1 and D2, and I think either would have translated well to a console. I guess we'll know soon enough...

    Of coarse its going to be Starcraft 2....Blizzard knows that it will sell truckloads of it. Plus Starcraft 1 is insanely popular over in Korea so it makes sense them launching it over there, even though TGS is in Japan.

    In a recent interview, Bill R from Blizzard said they aren't working on any "strategy games" at the moment.

    SC2 was my guess as well.

    I'd guess SC2, but I really wish it would be D3. Man, that would be sweet.

    Besides, we all know they'll announce it today, and ship in Q2 2004.

    Some guys over on the Anandtech forums are speculating that it's a FPS based around a ghost from Starcraft as the lead character. Not sure if there's any more chance of this happening than any of the other suggestions here but it sure sounds like a neat idea.

    I really really really hope its not starcraft 2. I hope its a totally new game and not just a graphics upgrade of one of their other games like all the other sequels have been. A FPS from Blizzard might be interesting though.

    Yes, a new game idea from the geniuses at Blizzard would be great.

    On a distantly related topic: I know that super special editions of Diablo II and Warcraft III have included a DVD with all the cinematics rendered sublimely for home theatre presentation plus concept art, storyboards, on and on. Now a Starcraft Cinematics DVD is also available at Blizzard's online store.

    I would love to get a separate or combined release of these discs. The work on Warcraft III is particularly magnificent.

    Apparently, this was recently posted on Gamers.com:
    Gamers.com: News:
    First Details on New Blizzard Game
    By: Staff September 19, 2002 1:07 AM PDT
    Whether or not you were aware of this, Blizzard is planning to announce a brand new game later today at the Tokyo Game Show. A rather peculiar time and place for the popular PC developer to reveal a new product, but not so odd when you consider these first bits of info that have been leaked in Japan:
    It's for a console. And it's a Metal Gear Solid style game.
    Got your interest piqued? Stay tuned to www.blizzard.com for a countdown to the official announcement. And, of course, this site for lots more as we hear it.
    I guess we'll know one way or the other soon enough.

    Blackthorne 2!!!! PLEASE!

    Although a FPS is in the range of possibilities as they are using the Quake III Engine for one of their future products.
