Earlier saw it learned that Dan Slott's next project is Iron Man as he is leaving Spider-Man at Marvel Comics.
Slott probably wanted to go out with a bang as his last Spider-Man story features a mystery villain with the Red Goblin.
Now it appears as if the identity of the Red Goblin has been spoiled as an Amazon UK listing (via BC) for Volume 9 of Dan Slott’s Spider-Man “Worldwide” storyline apparently reveals the details:
“Go down Swinging! Norman Osborn has finally found a way to become a Goblin again and is gunning for Spider-Man in the biggest way possible. His new weapon? The Carnage Symbiote! There’s never been a bigger tougher Goblin/Spider-Man story than this! Collecting: Amazing Spider-Man 797-801.”
The arc doesn't actually kick off until March with Amazing Spider-Man #797, so this looks to be pretty big leak.
