Of course, visitors to the Blizzard booth will also be able to get some hands-on play time with all our games: Diablo IIIHearthstone, Heroes of the Storm, Overwatch, StarCraft II, and World of Warcraft.

We’ll reveal details on what we have in store for you as the event nears, and we look forward to seeing you at gamescom 2017!

While Blizzard’s announcement is light on details. Gamescom has historically been a been a big convention for the company. In 2016, Blizzard announced new heroes and maps for Heroes of the Storm, the revamped Karazhan for World of Warcraft, and debuted the Bastion cinematic along with the Eichenwalde map for Overwatch, among other announcements. Back in 2015, Blizzard announced the Legion expansion for World of Warcraft.

Outside of BlizzCon, Gamescom is prime territory for major announcements out of Blizzard Entertainment. It is, after all, the largest gaming conference in the world. We’ll surely know more closer to the event itself.
