Blizzard Splash Screen Mystery

Blizzard is a rather popular games developer, specifically with PC gamers, but this has not always been the case. Older gamers are sure to remember the classic Rock N Roll Racing and historic Lost Vikings. Recently Blizzard have placed a splash screen on the initial page of all their large websites, and of course rumours and questions have been flying around the internet since!

The following image was the original:

Which after a few days evolved to:

And lastly shown today as:

But where can the image go from here? Fans of the series have pointed out a few key concepts from hints hidden on the splash screen:

– There is a protoss symbol on one of the runes present, but look closer and you will find that the first symbol is from the Deathknights sword in World of Warcraft, and the third is a hel rune from Diablo.

– A piece of artwork that has been slowly leaked through the CSS file systems indicate a piece of work which was created by someone who originally worked on the artwork of Diablo.

– Even stranger the file name of the files ended in a number, which together combine to fit the Lost TV Series lotto numbers (04, 08, 15, 16, 23, 42). Yes we know, Lost Vikings anyone?

– The image of the eyes fit both characters from World of Warcraft and Starcraft. But what else could the eyes indicate? Perhaps the following image could throw another idea into the works…

It is not yet known if the above image is a fake, or what the splash screen actually really means. But what is known is that Blizzard have something up their sleeves and plan to bare all in a few days time. Console gamers can only hope that if a new game is announces, be it a Starcraft, Warcraft, Diablo or a new IP all together; that consoles are graced too!
