This is how they always present news like this, it builds suspense, gets us excited.
They want us to speculate.
Vague statements and lack of specifics have cause all manner of kerfuffles between the dev team and players, ranging from simple misunderstandings at best to flat out falsehoods at worst. Not to mention it's quite annoying to be told repeatedly "stay tuned for that one piece of information you actually want while we keep talking in circles without actually saying anything".
Playing the "I know something you guys don't know" game with the playerbase is never, ever the right move.
