BlizzCon 2020 has been canceled

‘We will sorely miss connecting with so many of you at the convention and recharging our geek batteries this fall.’

BlizzCon 2020 has been canceled as a result of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, Blizzard Entertainment announced today.

The company said in an early April blog post that they weren’t sure whether or not they would be holding the event, and would be monitoring the situation. In today’s post, BlizzCon Executive Producer Saralyn Smith said, “Since then, a lot has changed . . . and a lot also hasn’t changed.”

“Ultimately, after considering our options, we’ve come to the very difficult decision to not have BlizzCon this year,” the statement goes on to confirm.

BlizzCon is Activision-Blizzard’s annual celebration of all things Blizzard, and one of the largest video game conventions in the world. Emanating from Anaheim, California, the convention has been host to World of Warcraft expansion announcements, the birth of Overwatch and Hearthstone, and countless eSports competitions across every Blizzard property.

While BlizzCon won’t be happening, Blizzard still has a busy 2020 ahead of them, with the upcoming World of Warcraft: Shadowlands expansionOverwatch 2, and rumors of a Diablo 2 HD remaster on the horizon.
