BlizzCon To Be Online in 2021, February Dates Confirmed

For fans of games developed by Blizzard Entertainment such as World of Warcraft or Starcraft III, the annual BlizzCon event is an occasion to look forward to. It is here where a majority of the new content and game announcements are made, and is a chance for their fans to meet up with in-game friends, likeminded individuals and totally geek out! With COVID-19 still ravaging North America, decisions would need to be made about the future of the event in 2021 – would they take a chance and go forward with planning a physical convention? Cancel it outright? or perhaps follow in the trail of other companies and go online only.

Blizzard Entertainment has, fortunately, chosen the latter option. This morning, it was confirmed that they would be moving forward with their inaugural BlizzConline 2021 festivities on 19-20 February 2021.

Below is a statement from Blizzard Entertainment around the change of format:

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. 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.

Expect to hear more about BlizzConline 2021 in the coming months, around how you will be able to attend virtually, any purchasable tickets/goodies, and how the event itself shapes up.
