BlizzCon 2024 Canceled By Blizzard

BlizzCon 2024 has been canceled by Blizzard, the company announced on Thursday.

“After careful consideration over the last year, we at Blizzard have made the decision not to hold BlizzCon in 2024,” the company said in its statement. “This decision was not made lightly as BlizzCon remains a very special event for all of us, and we know many of you look forward to it.

“While we’re approaching this year differently and as we have explored different event formats in the past, rest assured that we are just as excited as ever to bring BlizzCon back in future years.”

BlizzCon has usually been an event where Blizzard makes various announcements surrounding its games. In 2023, Blizzard used the event to reveal Diablo 4’s first expansion called Vessel of Hatred as well as three expansions for World of Warcraft, and more.

As far as Blizzard’s plans for the year, the company says it will be sharing details of its upcoming launches over “the next few months”.

“To celebrate these upcoming releases and to bring our communities together in new and special ways, we will soon share some exciting plans for other industry trade shows and conventions like Gamescom,” Blizzard said. “We can’t wait to tell you more about those plans soon.” 

The company closed its statement saying that it hopes the various events it’s attending will “capture the essence” of Blizzard.
