Maybe it's just a stylish splash screen that is not intended to be used for promoting games.

Yeah I saw that image too. I'll counter it with:

Lead 3D Environment Artist
Blizzard Entertainment, the developer of Diablo and Diablo II, is looking for a lead 3D environment artist skilled at creating models and texture maps for both architectural and natural environments. The ideal candidate has experience modeling and texturing assets for a diverse visual range of environments.
Take a look at the job posting here.

Which has since been reworded.

A second image came up.

Collapse Box


We can tell the artists have some obsession with fat purple things since burning crusade. Seriously though everything in that expansion is bright colors (typically purple) and chunky, fat, or just bloated. Then for Starcraft 2 we see this and go WTF:

Collapse Box


And now this is concept art for the next Diablo (and stop fucking calling it Diablo 3, its not going to be called that because they're butchering it into an MMO).

I'm calling it Diablo 3 until they release a name for it.

It's Diablo 3. Why?

Reasons it's likely Diablo 3:
- Patch 1.12 for Diablo removing the need for the disk to be in to play.
- Blizzard buying up every diablo3 domain they could.
- The rumor about the next Diablo being set in a world where "Hell froze over."
- Imagine is linked as "ice1"
- That image is called ice1. If you remember Diablo II v1.11, they said hell was freezing over. It's not a movie, so it doesn't matter if it is reused. There are satanic symbols in the ice if you look closely.
- June 29th is the 10th year anniversary of Diablo II.
- Diablo III is probably going to be announced next Sunday [upcoming tradeshow]. If it isn't announced at either WWI or Blizzcon, don't expect it any time soon.
- Diablo III is most likely an MMO because Blizzard has been hiring for MMO work for quite a while. I loved the old hack n' slash, but I think that if it was an MMO, it would be the best one to date.

The Ice seems to be cracking more and more as the day goes by too.
From the picture, I see the Hel and Shael rune too. Also, if you look carefully, you can see the aspects of diablo. The red skin, eyes, horns, and etc.

Definitely Diablo 3. I bet all my minerals on it.

Oh_Man -- Anyone who is interested in ARPG game design this is a must read. Wyatt Cheng from Blizzard went into some juicy gos on the game design decisions of D3 including scrapped mechanics and post launch. Very interesting.
