Next Blizzcon Pushed to 2013

By Sean McQuillan

Citing a jam-packed schedule, with the release of Diablo III and Starcraft 2: Heart of the Swarm, a Blizzard rep has stated that they will be cancelling the 2012 Blizzcon. As an avid fan of Blizzard’s entire portfolio this is sad news. I loved attending Blizzcon, and it has an atmosphere unlike any other. I’ll be right there back in line for 2013, and at least this will give me some time to get lost in some Diablo III.

I felt a great disturbance in the Force, as if millions of voices suddenly cried out in terror and were suddenly silenced. I fear something terrible has happened.
