Blizzard is stirring up speculation with a splash screen on their website, causing many to suspect they are about to announce a new title.

Blizzard's World Wide Invitational convention is this weekend in Paris, and if previous conventions are anything to go by, we may see the title announced around 11.45pm Saturday, NZ time.

Kotaku has published an article which appears to show similarities between the splash screen and runes found in Diablo II, immediately causing a nosebleed for dozens of hardcore fans of the epic franchise.

We'll look forward to Saturday evening; in the meantime you can comment on this in our forums.
