    Exclamation Blizzard Hints at Special Announcement for Gamescom Press Conference

    Blizzard has revealed that a "special announcement" will be made at this year's Gamescom according to a new email from the developer of the StarCraft, Diablo and Warcraft franchise. The press conference will be held on August 21st, the first day of the annual gaming exhibit being held in Cologne, Germany.

    It would seem Diablo related, I'm 99.99% sure though Blizzcon will be where a WoW X5 will be announced.

    What's everyone's thoughts?

    This is only the 50th thread on the topic.
    "Good morning!" said Bilbo, and he meant it. The sun was shining, and the grass was very green. But Gandalf looked at him from under long bushy eyebrows that stuck out farther than the brim of his shady hat.

    Well if so then it will be the name of the next xpax (and theme). Further details in Blizzcon.

    You should probably go, I'm sure a ton of next-gen stuff will be shown of, since Gamescom and TGS are the only big trade shows between now and the Xbone/PS4 launch.

    The next WoW expansion and Hearthstone for PS4/XOne.

    Why are people still speculating about this?

    Heavens and Burning Hells -> Diablo.

    Diablo definitely...

    Probably the D3 expansion. Announcing it before Blizzcon so it can gain some traction when they add it as the new annual pass bonus, perhaps.

    Diablo III for Xbox one and PS4 + Expansion Pack?

    LoL! But seriously Titan, Warcraft IV, and Lost Vikings 2

    Totally agree. It'll probably be the D3 expansion announced. WoW is still theor biggest game, and they'll use their biggest stage to announce Expansion V
    Sometimes I think I should have rolled a Priest....
