Update (3pm): The XFire WWI page has been edited, removing the Game Announcement part.
XFire either accidentally posted there would be a Game Announcement based on the rumors sprung from DiabloFans.com and Blizzplanet, or they know something and oops … slipped it. Did XFire confirm there will be a game announcement? (image)
As usual, I will communicate with my XFire and Blizzard contacts for a comment to clarify this new rumor. Stay tuned.
At this point, this is still considered a rumor—keep that in mind. Blizzard has not issued any official press releases concerning a game announcement at the Blizzard Worldwide Invitationals.
This is what appears at the XFire website.
The Blizzard Worldwide Invitational, to be held in Paris on June 28th & 29th is sold out! If you can’t attend, Xfire will be on the showfloor, bringing the event straight to your computer!
