Blizzard Entertainment® gaming celebration to return to Anaheim Convention Center on
August 21-22

PARIS, France -- February 17, 2009 -- Blizzard Entertainment, Inc. today announced plans for its fourth BlizzCon® gaming convention, to be held at the Anaheim Convention Center in Anaheim, California on Friday, August 21 and Saturday, August 22. BlizzCon is a celebration of the global player communities surrounding Blizzard Entertainment®’s Warcraft®, StarCraft®, and Diablo® universes. In response to the festival’s increasing popularity, this year’s event has been expanded from three convention halls to four.

“We’ve been amazed by the incredible response to each of our previous BlizzCon events,” said Mike Morhaime, CEO and cofounder of Blizzard Entertainment. “We’re pleased to be bringing the convention back to Anaheim this year, and we look forward to this new opportunity to meet Blizzard gamers from around the world.”

BlizzCon will offer a wide variety of activities throughout the two-day event. In addition to serving as a gathering place for Blizzard Entertainment gaming communities, attendees will be able to enjoy:

• Hands-on play time with upcoming Blizzard Entertainment games
• Discussion panels with Blizzard Entertainment developers
• Competitive and casual tournaments for players to showcase their talents
• Community contests with great prizes
• Commemorative merchandise based on Blizzard Entertainment’s game universes
• A silent auction
• More exciting activities and attractions to be announced
Further details, including ticket availability and pricing, will be announced on the official BlizzCon website, http://www.blizzcon.com, as the event draws closer.


To keep pace with the continued growth of World of Warcraft as well as development on other Blizzard Entertainment games, the company is currently hiring for numerous open positions. More information on available career opportunities can be found at http://eu.blizzard.com/en/jobs/

One can only hope that it is true. However, I doubt we will see any MMO announcement at this year's Blizzcon.

What we will see is probably a new class for Diablo 3 and announcement of Starcraft 2 shipdate (provided Beta starts anytime soon)

If Beta is released in August, then Beta will be the only fun taste of SC2 I will be able to enjoy. That would mean a possible 2010 release and conflicts with law school. Law school = barely any time for SC2. Thanks for the continuous delays blizzard

I'm hoping for the beta to start in May/June, and release date at Blizzcon.

But... It could be the beta announcement, which wouldn't be a shocker either. Lets just say its a deadline.

Was the WC3 beta announced at a convention?

I wouldn't be surprised for a release date to be announced at BlizzCon. The playable SC2 demo there will most likely be the beta version.

I heard that blizzard is planing to do a World Wide Invitational this year. Why would they announce Blizzcon when they haven't announced the WWI? Are they not doing it this year?

Telling us where you heard that might be kinda useful. WWIs seem to be the time when Blizzard likes to announce new titles.

Default Re: Blizzcon 09 announced sc2 beta?

just a clarifation on my last post: I didn't know if blizzard was doing the WWI as it has not been confirmed yet. A few sites stated that it was a rumor, i was wondering in my previous post if they were doing it that's why I asked "are they not doing it this year?"

I suspected that was the case, the sites with the rumors could have been referring to Blizzcon. Well, you know how accurate they are. WWI is probably still a year or more away, Im guessing thats when they should announce the new MMO.

Default Re: Blizzcon 09 announced sc2 beta?

Me thinks it's possible that they announced BlizzCon so early this year because it's a hint to when the beta will go public. I find it interesting that Blizzard's been talking a lot about the beta for the past few weeks and dropping hints all over the place and then they give us this.

Blizzard doesn't use big events to announce betas, they just announce them on their website when they are ready.

BETA to be announced in about 5 months time at Blizzcon. I'll put my money on that. It sounds about right.
