More and more gaming events are moving away from convention centres and into the digital scape. The next one to do so is Blizzard, who will be holding a digital version of its convention, BlizzCon, early next year.
This past year events like E3 or Gamescom transitioned into their digital version. BlizzCon, however, was completely cancelled. Now, according to the BlizzCon website, fans can expect a digital event in February. The event will try to emulate the real-life BlizzCon as best as it can with Cosplay contests, talent spotlights and more.
This is not the first time you will be able to attend BlizzCon digitally. Blizzard has for several years offered digital tickets to its events. Those tickets would allow the buyer to attend the events online. They would also provide the buyer with a slew of digital goodies (Overwatch skins and such).
Watch Blizzcon from the comfort of your home
The event will be held on February 19-20. There is no official word from Blizzard regarding franchises. It is safe to bet, however, that games like Overwatch 2 and Diablo 4 would make an appearance.
