So says the simple Tweet from Blizzard this evening. To add to the intrigue they link to an image on Twitpic (see left). Some of the more seasoned players might recognise the symbol as that from the Ral rune, or is it? They’ve been known to use runes before in teasers. Cast your mind back to the run up to WWI with the blue splash pages which featured runic symbols from each of their franchises and of course we turned out to be the lucky ones on that occasion. Does that look like a symbol from one of their other games?
Two things we can be sure of is that Diablo 3 most definitely isn’t coming (just yet) and the other is that April the 1st is. Blizzard pulled a pretty elaborate Diabo 3-based April Fool’s last year. They announced The Archivist, including an introduction written by Abd al-Hazir, skills and his role within the game. Unfortunately many of you didn’t fall for it as you can see from the comments in the news item and there’s probably less chance of that with this teaser.
I could be wrong and the joke could be that it’s absolutely nothing to do with April Fools. Diablo 3 could in fact be going into beta, next week and we all live happily ever after. The end.
