‘We still have a lot of planning to do,’ says Blizzard
After scrapping its plans for an in-person event this year due to COVID-19-related “health and safety considerations,” Blizzard hopes to “channel the spirit of BlizzCon into the form of an online show.” As we now know, the replacement event is called BlizzConline, and it’s running from February 19–20, 2021.
Currently, details are light outside of the event’s Community Showcase, which is pitched as “an opportunity for cosplay crafters, artists, and other community creators to participate in the show and put their talent on display through a mix of world-class competition and exciting exhibitions.” If that aspect of BlizzCon is in your wheelhouse, you’ll be able to read the rules today and get cracking.
As for upcoming game announcements and development updates, Blizzard hasn’t had much to say. “We still have a lot of planning to do, and it’ll be some time before we’re ready to share more details.”
Today’s post is just a date confirmation and “a heads-up on how you can be a part of the online fun.”
