It looks like Microsoft may be going back to San Francisco again in 2014 for its Build developer conference.

The Verge's Tom Warren grabbed a quick screen grab from the Microsoft news site on December 12 that indicates Build 2014 will be April 2-4 in San Francisco at the Moscone Center. Build 2013 was held in June this year, in the same city, same venue. According to The Verge, registration for next year's Build will begin January 14, 2014.

The information about the next Build is no longer on the Microsoft news site. I reached out to Microsoft to request confirmation. No word back so far.

April 2014 would be a good time for Microsoft execs to share more on a few key products expected in the first half of 2014. These include Windows Phone 8.1 "Blue," Windows 8.1 Update 1 and the expected Microsoft mini-Surface.

Microsoft's first Build conference -- its replacement for its Professional Developers Conference and Mix shows -- in Anaheim in 2011. The second Build was in Seattle in 2012, and keynoted by CEO Steve Ballmer.

Update (December 13): Microsoft is now confirming officially that Build 2014 will be held April 2-4 in San Francisco.
