[Update]: Continuing on with the theme of delays, World of Warcraft's Shadowlands expansion has been delayed until late 2020!

Due to the world being a bit of a wonderland right now, Blizzard will not be holding their annual Blizzcon convention later this year. Instead, they will be switching to an all-online variant with mostly the same amount of content and fan-interaction.

Needless to say, changing everything up takes a fair bit of time, so because of this Blizzcon Online will be breaking tradition and taking place from February 19-20, 2021. The exact details behind each event haven't been announced just yet, but if you're planning to join any of the fan contests, you might want to check out the official website given that Blizzard has now opened up submissions.

If you're willing to indulge a bit of speculation, however, then I think it's safe to say that the main focus of Blizzcon Online will be Overwatch 2 and Diablo 4. On the Overwatch 2 front we're highly likely to get either a release date or the announcement of an upcoming beta test, while the Diablo 4 team is probably just going to focus on showing off the new and improved gameplay.

You can also expect to see news about the first major World of Warcraft: Shadowlands update, a new expansion or feature for Hearthstone, as well as some minor additions to Heroes of the Storm and Starcraft 2. And if the rumors are true, then we might also get the announcement for The Burning Crusade Classic!

Once the full reveal goes live I'll make sure to let you know, but until then I'm afraid all we can do is sit and wait. After all, it's highly unlikely Blizzard will do any sort of major announcement that would detract from their massive event.
