Sorry for the delay but I was out of town on vacation this last week…
Any way looks like the splash screen was in fact a teaser to the announcement of Diablo III.
Twenty years have passed since the cataclysmic events of Diablo®II. Mephisto, Diablo, and Baal have been defeated, but the Worldstone, which once shielded the world of Sanctuary from the forces of both the High Heavens and the Burning Hells, has been destroyed, and evil once again stirs in Tristram….
Following the unveiling of Diablo III today at the Blizzard Entertainment Worldwide Invitational, we’ve launched the game’s official website, with information about the places, characters, monsters, and adventures awaiting you upon your return to the world of Sanctuary. Some of the site’s highlights include:
- The cinematic teaser trailer shown at the 2008 Worldwide Invitational
- A 20-minute gameplay demo video
- More than 60 screenshots and pieces of concept art
- Deckard Cain’s journal, narrated by Deckard Cain himself — stay a while and listen!
- And much, much more
