Well, here we go. The past couple of years have not featured a celebration of Blizzard as a company because… well, we have a long list of reasons. But this year fans are once again encouraged to journey to Anaheim, California, and join other people inside of a haunted plague box to celebrate everything Blizzard makes on November 3rd and 4th. And unlike other events that have had to ultimately cancel because of a lack of participants willing to engage (hello, E3), we can be fairly certain that Blizzard will in fact attend its own BlizzCon.
Of course, this BlizzCon will also be dealing with a variety of Blizzard’s own self-inflicted wounds, including the revelation yesterday that the studio was pulling the plug on most of Overwatch 2’s PvE content. Still, fans can expect news about World of Warcraft, Diablo IV (which will be released by then), and possibly other properties as well. Whether or not this seems like a good time to hold a convention for the company is unclear (just look at the box below), but that’s what’s happening.
