    **** you Blizzard. I never thought I'd say it, but there it is. What's up with the Lost reference anyways?

    They better explain themselves or they're going to regret this. And that penguin's getting creepier the more I look at it.

    As far as I can tell, the eyes are either Arthas' or a Protoss's. It COULD be a demon (Diablo) or something unbeknownst, but the area between the eyes looks like the Protoss eyebrow ridge, or Arthas' helm

    The 5 runes make a pentagram (the symbol of Diablo).

    Which could provide some hope for a D3, but I am 99% sure that those are the eyes of Arthas.

    This is some weird stuff here. It's a pentagram all right, but why the weird new runes and the Protoss/Lich King face? If you really stretched your imagination it could be Tyrael, but that's pushing it a bit over the top.

    Why would Blizzard hype up a release date like this? They did this same thing last year when they announced SC2.

    Its definitely a Protoss character. The triangle outline between their eyes is part of the Protoss headress. Also THE BACKGROUND IS STARS! Unless the new WoW expansion takes place in outer space...that splash screen refers to STARCRAFT II!!

    The glowing eyes look like Arthas.
    Diablo has always been associated with red and fire and hell...
    Did hell freeze over? lol.

    Maybe Diablo's not in hell anymore. Diablo's dead, remember? IF it is Diablo 3 you'll probably go up against Belial and Azmodan.

    You're right, it could be a reference to that.

    Maybe they are trying to refer to all 3 games for the build up just to put that tiny bit of doubt in your mind then exploding diablo3 upon us all xD.

    I assume the penguin is from the world stone breaking up turning everything on earth into hellspawnish monsters or at least everything nearby.

    OMG it would've looked soo cute before it became evil though...

    Definitely looks Protoss. Possibly Diablo, but I definitely can't see how it's Arthas.

    Also, just putting it out there, but how can you place five points on a circle without it acting like a pentagram?

    Fact 1: the penguin pictures numbers = the Lost numbers
    Fact 2: runes = vikings
    Theory: Lost Vikings 3 :D

    Ok, so my theory isn't any good, more of a wish really, but still... It would be fun to see a new LV game :)

    Hey, I was saying right from the beginning it is lost vikings 3! Ximni you cheater!

    Mmmm, I really want it to be Diablo 3, but if you look at the Blizzard WoW Lich King site, it becomes pretty obvious= http://www.worldofwarcraft.com/wrath/

    Look at the eyes...and also, the whole ice theme.. I am sorry, but it seems that Blizzard cares more about its WoW fans...

    I hope it's one of three things:

    1) Diablo 3 but not an MMO, at least without a required subscription fee. (Like GW or Hellgate:London)
    2) If it's not 1, it should be something on SC2.
    3) If it's not either of those, I hope it's not at all related to WoW or it's expansions.

    And yes, the image has a lot of allusions to many Blizzard products, but in my opinion, the central image is definitely Protoss-esque.

    But ice has nothing to do with Protoss. Ice is obviously related to the game it hints at since it's the major theme of the image. I think this is for the WoW expansion. Considering how much money it brings Blizzard, it's worth playing games and being all mysterious even if everyone knows it's coming.
