When is BlizzCon 2020?

BlizzCon 2020 is going to arrive faster than you think. We always get about halfway through the year before it feels like it’s about to happen at any moment. While Blizzard hasn’t made any official announcements on when the event will take place this year, we have a good guess on when that’ll be.

Every year, Blizzard announces the dates for its annual convention and celebration of its games in April. We’re two months out from then, but it seems likely that the dates will line up with how the previous BlizzCons went. It’ll be surprising if BlizzCon 2020 doesn’t happen close to the first week of November. Specifically — since BlizzCons always happen on Friday and Saturday — it’ll likely be either October 30 and 31 or November 6 and 7.

If you’re hoping to grab tickets, you’ll probably need to be prepared by late April or early May. Last year, you had to purchase the tickets on AXS. The store page had you sign in with an email, Facebook login, or Battle.net account and enter a waiting room. You then would need to have the AXS mobile app to enter the convention itself. Be sure to keep an eye on the announcements though. The prices were recently increased from previous years, so you might need to plan accordingly.

There are a lot of games that we might see at BlizzCon 2020. Everything from more Overwatch 2 and Diablo 4, to potential unannounced projects. It’s been a long, long time since we’ve heard anything about StarCraft. It seems like it’ll be a substantial show with demos of games that were announced last year. I’d expect detailed panels on their big games, and the usual announcement of new content for Hearthstone, Heroes of the Storm, and WoW. Heck, maybe we’ll finally be playing Diablo Immortal by then. That’ll surely make the lines more tolerable.
