Rumor: BlizzCon 2016 aims for November 4-5

Are we doing the time warp?

When is this year’s BlizzCon? We don’t know. It hasn’t even been officially announced yet. But the eagle-eyed folks over at MMO Champion spotted a brief revision to the official BlizzCon page claiming that this year would mark the 10th year of the convention and that it would be held on November 4th and 5th.

Is that a given? No, at this point nothing is a given. That timeframe marks it as post-launch for both of the company’s two big releases slated for this year (Overwatch and World of Warcraft: Legion), so it’s definitely plausible, but nothing is yet set in stone. Watch this space.

dorn2  It is Blizzard-con not WoW-con. And most marketing at most companies is about the Amazing New Future! they want you to buy not the boring present that you have already paid for.

Yes, watch for the announcement about $200+ tickets for an over glorified LAN party.  Literally the only thing you are paying for is to cover the cost of whatever band they can scrounge up for the show.  Past that, you may as well just stay home because like last year, you’re not gonna miss anything.

What do they talk about when they haven’t had a patch since the last blizzcon?

What would they show if they’re not going to to have Overwatch or Legion at the Con?

Maybe yet another, another Hearthstone expansion?

Oh, how about a couple more overtly complex heroes to add to Heroes of the Storm?  They’ve got their work cut out for them on that bleeding pop while Paragon, Paladins, and others are rolling out soon.

Maybe announcing Warcraft: The Movie 2?  Depending on the one’s launch in summer -which should be near sold out on the first weekend- I’m guessing that’s more in line with their company.

It probably will be.  Because you need to book a space to hold it and you don’t do that a few weeks before it happens.  I’d be very surprised if these are not the real dates.
