3pm – I really don’t know how accurate this info is.  1up Representatives are at South Korea, and they saw a Medusa Demo listed in the event itinerary list.  They are clueless at what this is.  They are speculating it is a new Blizzard Game or a engine codename of sorts.

Here is the short Article.

3:20pm – Someone I will call “Anonymous” has contacted me after reading this news.  Anonymous says there are two projects: Medusa and “censored”.  These are code-names assigned “internally” to the unannounced games. I’m not sure how accurate this is.  Take it as rumor. I think this is a very critical info if true. I don’t dare say much further about which Teams the codenames belong to.

UPDATE: I opted to remove the second project’s codename. Sorry. However, note this is posted under Starcraft section due to Medusa codename.  =)

The Second Project, which codename I choose to keep censored, might be showcased at BlizzCon along with the next World of Warcraft expansion.  So, expect two game announcements at BlizzCon through August 3-5.

10:50pm EST – It’s been a calm evening.  All speculations, and info has slowed down.  We are barely 3 hours from the game announcement.  I visited the Blizzard Korea site, to watch that teaser trailer again.  At the end it displays the text:

And … (Golden blur special effect – fade in/fade out) 2007 Worldwide Invitational

That golden blur caught my attention even when I have seen the teaser at least 12 times since a week ago.  This time however, that golden blur reminded me of a Protoss Carrier. Might be nothing.
