Blizzard entertainment announced that BlizzCon similar to the year 2020 will not be celebrated, either in a current or online form. According to a press release issued by the company, Saralyn Smith, executive producer of BlizzCon, confirms that “after considering our options, we have made the very difficult decision not to hold BlizzCon this year.”
Following the announcement, Blizzard plans to hold some streaming events, but at the moment it is not clear how to “channel Blizzard’s spirit and connect with the audience in any way online.” Make sure they will do it as soon as they can, but it will most likely be early next year. I let you continue the complete communication;
Hi Blizzard Community,
A few weeks ago I shared one update about our uncertainty surrounding this year’s BlizzCon celebration. Since then, much and nothing has happened changed. During this time, we have had many discussions about how a convention can be in light of all the health and safety considerations we want to make. We also talked about different paths we could take and how each one could be complicated by fluctuations in national and local health measures in the coming months. Finally, after considering our options, we have made the difficult decision not to have BlizzCon this year.
We feel deeply disappointed by this decision, and imagine that many of you will feel the same way. I really love BlizzCon and I know it’s a feeling that everyone at Blizzard shares. We will connect a lot with many of you at the convention and “recharge our nerd batteries” for the fall.
But we we will see new!
We talked about how we could channel the spirit of BlizzCon and get in touch with you somehow online, much less affected by the state of health and safety protocols for mass meetings in person. We want to do this as soon as possible, but given that this is a new area and the various factors involved, it is highly likely that it will be the beginning of next year. BlizzCon is also a venue for major sporting events at Blizzard Games each year, so we are also looking for alternatives to support some of the high-level competitions that would normally take place on the show.
We’ll tell you more about our planes as they evolve, but in the meantime we look forward to exploring Shadow Earths, passing the rat in the Tavern, loading the useful cargo (come on!) And into any other area of the Blizzard universe . can vagar.
As long as we have new news about the steps Blizzard will take, we will publish it online. Follow us on social networks so you do not miss anything.
