BlizzCon 2013 Dates Announced: Nov 8-9

After Blizzard canceled BlizzCon 2012, some doubted whether we would ever see another BlizzCon again. But late last year, Blizzard confirmed that the convention will return in 2013, and today announced that this seventh BlizzCon is coming to the Anaheim Convention Center Friday, November 8 and Saturday, November 9, 2013.

Further details on the event, including ticket pricing and availability, will be revealed at a later date, but Blizzard has provided a preliminary list of activities:

  • Hands-on play time with the latest versions of Blizzard Entertainment games
  • Global finals for Blizzard eSports, featuring top pro gamers from around the world
  • In-depth discussion panels with Blizzard game developers and artists
  • Competitive and casual tournaments for players to showcase their talents
  • Community contests with great prizes
  • Commemorative merchandise based on Blizzard Entertainment’s game universes
  • More activities and attractions to be announced

The previous BlizzCon was held in Anaheim in October 2011, and tickets to the event sold out in seconds; so if you want to go this year, get ready to jump on that.

What do you think will be announced at BlizzCon 2013? The first Diablo 3 expansion?

Titan and the next wow expansion

Is there really going to be another WOW expansion? The game is starting to sputter. I think we’ll see some D3 content, maybe Titan, and lots more about HoTS.

Blizzard has been releasing a WoW expansion every 18-24 months. Blizzcon will take place 14 months after the launch of the last expansion, so odds are very good you’ll hear about the next one. And, yes, subs have dropped from 10-1/2 to 9-1/2 million, but that’s still about 8 million more than it’s closest competitor, so don’t think Blizzard is going to be abandoning it any time soon.

D3 will probably get some announcements (endgame??), but not StarCraft since HotS will have only come out earlier in the year.

And we’ve all been waiting on a Titan announcement at every BlizzCon. Is this the one where they talk about their next-gen game? We’ll see…
