Blizzard community members everywhere are invited to rally together for a weekend full of gaming, esports, cosplay, camaraderie, and the latest Blizzard Entertainment news at BlizzCon 2019, taking place at the Anaheim Convention Center in California on November 1 and 2. Tickets to the show go on sale soon in two waves: Saturday, May 4, and Thursday, May 9.
BlizzCon 2019 will feature a wide range of attractions and activities for attendees, including in-depth developer panels, world-class esports competition, and opportunities for community creativity to shine in the spotlight. In addition, BlizzCon is expanding to include more active hall space at the convention center as well as the new “BlizzCon Pregame Festivities”—a fun and casual get-together running outside of the convention center on the day before the show.
“BlizzCon has served as a home away from home for the Blizzard community, a place where online friends can meet up in real life and new friendships are formed,” said J. Allen Brack, president of Blizzard Entertainment. “We’re looking forward to welcoming everyone to the show this year, reconnecting, celebrating, and sharing some of our latest developments.”
Some of the greatest Blizzard esports moments of all time have taken place at BlizzCon, and this year’s show is sure to continue that tradition. Esports highlights for BlizzCon 2019 include the Hearthstone® Global Finals, capping off the inaugural year of Hearthstone Grandmasters; the Overwatch World Cup; the epic global finals for the StarCraft II World Championship Series; the World of Warcraft Arena World Championship Finals; and the inaugural global finals of the World of Warcraft Mythic Dungeon International.
