The rumor is that it's to get them more in line with actually casting spells and being "psykers". There has also been some murmurings about them losing their Eternal Warrior rule, and thusly dropping in points as well. But who knows for sure?
I would like to see Bloodcrushers move a little faster like Thunderwolves, that would definitely change up the Daemon meta, and spike sales on those kits for GW.
I mean we all know everyone bought all their flamers and screamer models already, what's the next most expensive kit left that you need multiples of... yup Bloodcrushers. If I was a betting man, I'd say they get a big boost in the update.
Keep in mind all of the above is my idle conjecture... I've been playing daemons since summer so I know a thing or two about how they work now so I feel like I can throw a comment in on this one.
Standard "rumors" disclaimer applies- MBG
It looks like some serious point changes are coming to Daemons in the next couple months. This is a little expected and could even include daemons from the last White Dwarf update. We will see.
Daemons are already a strong codex, and hopefully this coming February's update gives us a nice update to keep them competitive.
Please remember that these are rumors.

I have the gracious oppurtunity to glance over some of the new pix and pdf rules...
There will be many players i'm sure that will shun away from Daemons because of the obvious slant towards 40K ish models continuing to trickle in. There will also be a huge uproar from many Daemon players at the points change for MANY units...re-work on spells and much broader range on Magic Standards does help us.
Without saying too much more (and thus throwing up red-flags) I will say that I'm only slightly disappointed in it, rules wise.
New Bloodthirster and Great Unclean One look SICK!!!! However I'm still under the impression from "friends" that we won't see some of the new plastic Greater Daemons 'til closer to summer.
