As we all know, due to COVID-19 pandemic, most of the companies cancelled their events or they decided for virtual events. Blizzard is one of those companies which cancelled their event, Blizzcon, in May. But the good news is, Blizzard confirms BlizzCon will happen early 2021.
During a Question&Answer event, Blizzard president J. Allen Brack said: “We are planning on channelling the spirit of BlizzCon into a virtual event in the early part of next year. We’re really fortunate to have a passionate and engaged community that’s really looking forward to what we’re creating and what we’re working on.” He continued: “And we’re looking forward to sharing what the teams have been working on for that event.”
Normally, BlizzCon sells virtual tickets for the people who cannot attend their event. So their online event will be similar to the old ones. People will be able to watch the cosplay contest, esports competitions and the opening ceremonies online.
