    I don't think anyone knows for sure, yet. To me it looks like a representation of Dante's Inferno illustration of the levels of Hell, but that is just a random guess.

    Sorry for the lack of information, maybe someone else knows?

    In many stories (both modern and folklore), when there's a slaughter by demons, there's always some sort of symbol. In many cases these are merely "I was here" kinds of things designed for plot purposes to be a case of "hey look, it's a trail we can follow!" or "it's a lead Watson!," in others it's part of a ritual - usually with summoning something, a sacrifice for something (usually tied with something else), or empowering something (usually the one who killed, or if a servant/minion did the killing, for their master).

    Considering the story given in the cinematic, it may have been the former - something used to just show that demons did the massacre. Though I'd be interested to see what it is in the end.

    If it's just concept art, don't necessarily expect to see the same symbol in the final version. However it wouldn't be a stretch to see markings in locations of some violence where a demon or a possessed person (a vessel, even), committed the acts.
