Following the success of the free and online extravagance of the Blizzard that is BlizzConline 2021, fans are looking forward to the announcement of the main Blizzcon event of this year. The question of whether the event in person would take place this year is pending, the United States seeing a massive deployment of vaccines and the pandemic restrictions begin to be relaxed across the country. Unfortunately, the reality of the situation led to a disappointing decision. Referring to the “complexities and current uncertainty of the pandemic”, Blizzard announced today that there will be no BlizzCon 2021.
This is the second consecutive year that Blizzcon is canceled, the cancellation of the BlizzCon 2020 marking the first year since 2012 not to organize from Blizzcon. To date, only four BlizzCon cancellations have taken place-this year and last year due to the Cavid-19 Pandemic in progress, in 2012, Blizzard being occupied with the development of Diablo 3, World of Warcraft: Mists Of Pandaria and Starcraft 2: Heart of the Swarm, and in 2006 due to a low participation rate in the first outing of the CON in 2005.
However, everything is not dark – with the success of the BlizzConline 2021, Blizzard provides for a similar online event for the beginning of 2022. This event will include some “small gatherings in person” as well as an online show in the Spirit of this BlizzConline of the year. If the programming of the 2022 event is as full of action as the 2021 show, which presented Overwatch 2 news, World of Warcraft: Shadowlands, Diablo 2 Resurréted and Hearthst1. We can certainly expect to see more overwatch 2, whose release is currently estimated in 2022, as well as information on the new extensions of Hearthstone and perhaps even the highly anticipated hack and slash RPG Diablo 4.
No matter what the BlizzConline 2022 reserves us, it will surely be a show of the same magnitude as the BlizzConline 2021. Hopefully they will not obtain a DMCA withdrawal this time.
