GamesIndustry.Biz reported that Blizzard told President J. Allen Brack that the event will take place in Activision Blizzard’s earnings meeting in early 2021.
The digital showcase will be “in the spirit of BlizzCon” now that no physical show is being held. “We are excited to share what our teams are working on,” added Brack.
Blizzard announced in May this year that it had to “make the difficult decision” to cancel BlizzCon 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. When it was said that an online version of the event would take place in 2021, this means it will be the first November without BlizzCon since 2012. The announcement of “early 2021” indicates that it will not be long.
Recent BlizzCon events use a virtual ticket system to offer fans who watch from home more such as unique cosmetics for those with a ticket.
In this case, it seems that anyone can view BlizzCon 2021’s panels and disclosures without attending Anaheim. The company has plenty of poker on fire, including Diablo 4 and Overwatch 2, so we can expect news about those games in early 2021.
Other Blizzard news details the open-world activities in Diablo 4, as well as multiplayer and cut scenes. If you want to read more about Overwatch 2 you can see everything we know about the hero shooter sequel here.
