Default Blizzcon 2014 Announced

Blizzard has just announced that Blizzcon 2014 is officially happening November 7th and 8th later this year.

Here is the full press release:
Steel thyself, O mortal realm of Anaheim! The eighth BlizzCon is coming to your Convention Center this Friday, November 7 and Saturday, November 8, 2014. Prepare for two relentless days of Blizzard gaming and fellowship, including in-depth discussion panels with Blizzard developers, hands-on opportunities with the latest Blizzard games, and intense eSports tournaments featuring top pro gamers from across the earthly plane.

Tickets for BlizzCon 2014 will go on sale in two batches, one on Wednesday, May 7 at 7 p.m. PT and the other on Saturday, May 10 at 10 a.m. PT, through the online event ticketing service Eventbrite, priced at $199 each (plus applicable taxes and fees). In addition, a limited number of tickets to an exclusive pre-BlizzCon Benefit Dinner will go on sale Wednesday, May 14 at 7 p.m. PT for $750 apiece (plus applicable taxes and fees; BlizzCon admission included), with proceeds benefitting Children’s Hospital of Orange County. Check out the BlizzCon Ticket webpage for more information—we’ve made some changes to how ticket sales work this year, and fortune favors the prepared!

If you can’t make it to the show in person, the BlizzCon Virtual Ticket is the next best thing, offering comprehensive live coverage of the event via a multichannel Internet stream. Further details on the Virtual Ticket, including pricing, availability, and programming information, will be announced at a later date.

See the full press release or check out the BlizzCon Ticket page for more information, and be sure visit www.blizzcon2014.eventbrite.com at the dates and times above for a chance to purchase a ticket to the show. See you in Anaheim!

I can't really get excited. I suppose there's the 10th Anniversary stuff but other than that? Meh.

Unless they're going to blow everyone's mind and actually announce the NEXT expansion after WoD, I don't see the point.

I imagine we'll see some LotV stuff too, if nothing else.


With six games in development in some form or another I don't think we'll ever have a "year without a blizzcon" again. That said, I doubt we'll be seeing much of the post-WoD xpac. We'll probably see some stuff on that expansion's patches, but I imagine that WoW will take a back seat.

While I agree we won't hear anything about an expansion, I highly doubt WoW will take a back seat for one simple reason: This Blizzcon is only a few weeks sooner than both WoW's 10th and Warcraft's 20th anniversaries. There's no way having Blizzcon in November on this year is a coincidence, so while we might not have any news, they'll definitely have some sort of big celebration of that.

Maybe they'll announce an HD remake of Warcraft I or II like some have predicted?

And all it takes is a tactically calculated "for the Horde" rallying the troops to make them all think "OMG she really does care!"

I don't think the cost of a ticket to Blizzcon has ever been worth it?
I mean it depends on what you value, so what would you like / expect to see? Or are you looking for a surprise? If you want a decent answer to that either someones gonna give a lot of information or have an idea of what you like etc or pure hit/miss...
