Developers of Warcraft, Starcraft, Diablo, Overwatch, HOTS and Hearthstone are one of the few companies which have the audacity to hold their own convention. As with every year, they announced this year's BlizzCon would be in November 2018.
Blizzard announced BlizzCon 2018 will be happening on 02 November 2018. It will be a two-day event as per usual, and will feature several different parts such as a cosplay contest, a charity dinner and a chance for the attendees to see new games as well as other features in development.
The first ticket sale will be on 09 May 2018, with the second one following three days after that. For fans who cannot attend the event there is always the option of purchasing a virtual ticket. Pricing for the virtual ticket is yet to be announced for BlizzCon 2018, but we can expect a similar pricing to previous years' conventions.
As with every year, Blizzard employees host a benefit dinner where players may buy tickets to attend and enjoy an evening with the creators, artists and representatives of the company. This year, the funds for the charity will go to CHOC Children's hospital in California.
CEO and co-founder Mike Morhaime stated that BlizzCon was the company's favourite time of the year because they get to experience the fans' vigour towards their games. It the employees of the company a chance to meet all the Terran Commanders, Overwatch heroes and fans alike in order to establish better customer relations.
Previous BlizzCon events were embellished by a sizeable number of concerts from famous solo artists and bands alike. The closing nights of previous events were marked by concerts of Tenacious D, Foo Fighters, Ozzy Osbourne, Metallica, and many others. This year's concert is not yet announced.
BlizzCon 2018 marks the company's 12th annual event and will feature tournaments for Heroes of the Storm, World of Warcraft and StarCraft 2. It is likely that the championships will be streamed on Twitch as well as available for virtual ticket owners on the official website.
