Blizzard Says BlizzCon 2021 Will Come "Early" Next Year
Following the news earlier this year that BlizzCon 2020 would be canceled in the wake of COVID-19, Blizzard have announced they will be holding next year's convention as an online-exclusive event.
Not only will BlizzCon 2021 be a virtual event, but it will be held earlier in the year. As confirmed by Blizzard President J. Allen Brack during this week's Activision Blizzard earnings call, the convention will be held in "the early part" of 2021.
Virtual BlizzCon tickets are nothing new to fans of the developer, with many of those unable to attend the convention in person instead buying virtual tickets. Aside from allowing fans to watch the con's many panels and announcements, virtual tickets also often come with goodies for World of Warcraft, Hearthstone, and Blizzard's other titles.
