    As Hyve brought to my attention, it is SC related.

    Oh. Starcraft.

    I was hoping for something new.

    Could you clarify what this actually is for those who don't know?

    It's probably Blizz setting up the lore for the terran trying to control Kerrigan in order to gain control of the zerg (or at least trying to).

    I say 99.9% because Dominion is mentioned several times, we have the background logo of a clearly terran influenced unit, and pictures of bugs/zerg. However, I didn't find anything that officially say Starcraft 2.
    It is Starcraft, because you can see in the URL that it is under the Starcraft sub-directory.

    Only the URL says it's part of the SC2 portion of battle.net. Although that might be a diversion.

    Emperor Mensk is talked about, and it is in the sc2 section of Battle.net. It is clearly Starcraft related.

    a group that has been handpicked by top officials in Dominion intelligence and approved by Emperor Mengsk himself.
    is Starcraft.

    I feel like the symbol in the upper left corner in the coat of arms of the Dominion too, but I've not played SC2 since I finished the campaign when it came out.

    Clicking this link redirected me to http://eu.battle.net/sc2/de/blackstone/ (probably because I am located in Europe). Says sc2 in the url.

    I should really go and collect the vast amount of gold I am now owed, from all my friends who had "Inside Information that it was a Diablo 3 Expansion"

    This has now been mentioned 4 times, and has been edited into the original post, there really is no need to keep saying it...
