While BlizzCon 2020 was cancelled due to the coronavirus epidemic, Blizzard has announced something to take its place – BlizzCon Online.
The new all-digital event is going down on February 19th and 20th, 2021.
“While circumstances are keeping us from gathering in person this year, we’re putting together a little something early next year to channel the spirit of BlizzCon into the form of an online show”, Blizzard said in their press release.
They added, “We still have a lot of planning to do, and it’ll be some time before we’re ready to share more details—but we wanted to provide a heads-up on how you can be a part of the online fun.”
Blizzard didn’t mention in the post how fans can join BlizzCon Online – usually you’d have to buy a digital ticket to get full access to the online event. It’ll also be interesting to see if the company offers digital goodies for fans that attend.
The upcoming lineup of games from Blizzard include a Diablo IV, Overwatch 2, new content for World of Warcraft, and more.
