There are three certainties in life: death, taxes, and another BlizzCon every year even if Blizzard has absolutely nothing new to announce. Then again, we don’t know if Blizzard has nothing new to announce yet; it’s only March, and BlizzCon isn’t until November. The event page has just been updated to indicate that this year’s event will be on November 3rd and 4th in the usual convention center in Anaheim, CA. Tickets will go on sale on April 5th and April 8th.
Of course, we don’t yet have information on virtual tickets, associated digital swag, or anything else. But we know it’s happening, and you can start blocking out the time for it. Meanwhile, we’ll get our liveblogging posts ready well in advance of the actual event, as you know we’ll have coverage is you can’t make the actual convention. Feel free to join us in the official drinking game: Every time someone says e-sports, you can take a shot, and oh dear you now have alcohol poisoning.
