Blizzard have announced that their massive annual convention won’t be happening this year. Instead, they’ll be devoting more time to finishing their many projects. “In light of our jam-packed schedule, we’ve decided to hold the next BlizzCon in 2013,” Blizzard say in a statement on Battle.net, mentioning that they’re currently “heavily focused on getting Diablo III, Mists of Pandaria, and Heart of the Swarm into players’ hands as soon as possible.”
It sucks but with all the work they are doing on games this year I can see why.
Lots of Blizzard games are in the works
Lots of stuff going on over there. They make money on games much more than they do on Blizzcon.
I'm more surprised that they wouldn't have a different group that is in charge of the show . Saying that they can't do it because they want to focus on working on games makes me wonder if they have their game development teams working on the show lol.
I'll bet you could still buy tickets to the event. Why not try to get more money out of their customer's! ha ha
I just think my Blizzard Days are over, Never much of a starcraft fan (I'm honestly just terrible at those types of games) and WoW just makes my butt hurt thinking about all the time and energy i spent on that game, and looking back, it was only fun about 10% of the time when the stars were alligned and the moon was full...
I am though looking forward to seeing Diablo III in action at the next lan, but not sure i'll drop the $300 for the annual subscription to WoW to get it
I like Starcraft a bunch but I don't invest time in games like I used to. I play so many different games and not just for Gaming News that I am only really good in a few titles.
WoW was a blast for me but I lost out on playing so many different games that came out. Also, I hate who I become when I play MMO's. It's like that is all I do. MMO's are just not for me.
Good info lersar, that's not what my friend who bought it told me, but i guess he didn't read the fine print like you have.
Thanks for clarifying
