Blizzcon official artwork and logo

As you might expect given the currently ongoing pandemic, Blizzard has canceled their annual Blizzcon convention for this year. Instead, they will be switching to a fully online version with pretty much the same amount of announcements, previews, developer panels and fan contests.

The good news doesn't end there, however, as Blizzard's president J. Allen Brack has now come out to announce that Blizzcon Online will be entirely free to watch! So whether you're in it for the big announcements or some of the more technical developer interviews, you'll be able to view all of them without having to pay for a virtual ticket.

While we know that Blizzcon Online will take place from February 19-20, I sadly can't tell you anything about what sort of announcements you can expect to see. That said, if you're willing to indulge in a bit of speculation, I think it's safe to say that Diablo 4 and Overwatch 2 will be taking most of the spotlight as they're the two biggest upcoming games.

Besides that, I'm sure we'll see something about World of Warcraft: Shadowlands' first major content update, a trailer or preview for a new Hearthstone expansion, some minor additions to Heroes of the Storm or Starcraft 2, and if the rumors are true, the announcement of The Burning Crusade Classic!

Once any of those reveals happen I'll make sure to let you know. For now, however, I'll leave you with J. Allen Brack's recap of what Blizzard has been doing over the past few months. Enjoy!
