Things haven’t been easy for Blizzard ever since the debacle back in Blizzcon 2018 with their reveal of the mobile game Diablo Immortal that offended every fan in existence. However, things started to take a turn for the better when Diablo 4 got officially announced and revealed along with Overwatch 2 during Blizzcon 2019.
Despite that, the momentum eventually died off due to the lack of news regarding these games over time. And the unexpected arrival of the pandemic just made things even more unpredictable, by causing the cancellation of Blizzcon 2020 which could have yielded us some fruitful information.
Thankfully, there might be hope for next years’ Blizzcon 2021 to pick up the pieces and fill in the blanks.
Blizzcon 2021 may be our saving grace!
Fans of Blizzard games can rejoice because Blizzcon is going virtual for 2021! Dubbed as Blizzconline, the event will run from next year February 19 to 20, and the best part of it is that it’s going to be entirely free for everyone! So you don’t have to worry about purchasing virtual tickets for any kind of access.
The news came in earlier today in a Fireside Chat video through Blizzard’s official YouTube channel. The company’s president, J. Allen Brack, addressed the public in the video and announced the details of the event as well as upcoming content such as Shadowlands for World of Warcraft.
J. Allen Brack also went on to emphasize the importance of welcoming everyone into the gaming community and that they are actively working to take action against toxic behaviour and players quicker with their machine learning system.
All in all, it seems Blizzard is working hard to give players the gaming experience that they so dearly want. Here’s to hoping that Diablo 4 finally gets an official release date during Blizzcon 2021 because that information is so long overdue.
