After a few months of consideration, Blizzard has finally decided to hold an online BlizzCon next year. Calling it BlizzConline, the online-only event is set to be held on 19 and 20 February 2021.
The company made its announcement on the dedicated BlizzCon website. That being said, it looks like most of the details that the company has now relates to those who are looking to participate in BlizzConline in some way. Among the community showcase examples include the likes of a cosplay exhibition, as well as and contests for cosplay, art, and digital storytelling.
But on the flip side, there’s not much yet for those who just want to attend the online convention. The company says that it still has a lot of planning to do regarding BlizzConline. While understandable, it does sound a little odd, as it’s not like the company is completely new when it comes to selling online tickets for the event.
Perhaps most importantly, the company did not hint on any announcement that it will be making during the event. Back in last year’s event, the company made the first official announcements for Overwatch 2 and Diablo 4. Naturally, people are expecting updates for these two titles in the upcoming BlizzConline.
