In September, Blizzard announced that they cancelled the Blizzcon event because of the COVID-19 pandemic. Instead of Blizzcon, they said that there will be an online event called Blizzcon Online 2021.
As we all know, Blizzard is using virtual tickets for Blizzcon event. So, if you want to watch the event, you have to buy those tickets. But in their last announcement, Blizzard said that Blizzcon Online 2021 will be free. So everyone can watch the event without having to buy any tickets. Of course, the online event cannot be as exciting as the normal one, but this is better than nothing. In normal Blizzcon event, they reward ticket holders with in-game contents like unique skins, weapons. So, in Blizzcon Online 2021, these rewards might cost money to have. The event will be February 19-20, 2021.
📢 BlizzConline is set to take place February 19-20, 2021!
There's lots of planning left to do, but we wanted to provide an early heads-up on how you can take part in the online festivities! 🎉
