If the 70D does show up in the same market segment as the 60D, expect some slight variation of the same-old 9 point AF. (See 20D, 30D, 40D, 50D, 60D, 5D, 5D II & 6D.) Canon doesn't think an enthusiast shooter needs more than 9 AF points, ever.

Read the news, the 6D has a new 11 point AF system. Guess you missed that one. Go read up on it.

Granted, it has 11. One (!) of which is cross-type. That's a joke. That means they didn't just take the available 9-sensor AF (all cross type) and add two, they deliberately created a crippled version with only one-way sensors and added two.

Oh, and I forgot all the rebels that have had variants of the 9 point sensor ... 400D, 450D, 500D, 550D, 600D, 650D.
