Blizzard Entertainment released the schedule for this years BlizzCon– an online-only occasion called BlizzConline– showing what fans can get out of the two-day digital show. While the BlizzConline 2021 schedule doesnt offer too much information, it appears that both the World of Warcraft and Diablo franchises will be a significant focus at the occasion.
BlizzConline will begin Friday, Feb. 19, at 2 p.m. PST with an opening ceremony. According to the schedule, that will run simply over an hour. The opening event will be followed by a pair of “Whats Next” panels for World of Warcraft and Diablo. Generally, those panels at BlizzCon offer extra insight into statements made throughout the programs opening ceremonies.
While we do not anticipate a new growth for World of Warcraft, considered that Shadowlands just arrived in November, details on an approaching content spot might be exposed. Blizzards other variation of its enormously multiplayer online game, World of Warcraft Classic, might be a focus. Blizzard just recently reportedly surveyed gamers about interest in bringing the Burning Crusade expansion to Classic.
When it comes to Diablo, we understand that Diablo 4 remains in the works, as is Diablo Immortal, the mobile version of Blizzards action role-playing video game. A remake or remaster of Diablo 2 is likewise supposedly in the works at Blizzard, courtesy of Vicarious Visions, the developer behind recent Crash Bandicoot and Tony Hawks Pro Skater remakes.
Diablo and World of Warcraft will also be the topic of “Deep Dive” and developer Q&A panels at BlizzConline.
Blizzards other homes (Overwatch, Hearthstone, and StarCraft) appear to have a smaller sized existence at the program. Overwatch 2 will get a behind-the-scenes appearance on Friday, and Hearthstone will be the subject of a “Deep Dive” that will use “a more detailed look at whats coming” to the competitive card game in 2021.
Activision Blizzard set expectations for Diablo 4 and Overwatch 2s release dates previously this month during an investor presentation, when it verified that neither title is anticipated to show up prior to 2022.
BlizzConline will occur Feb. 19-20, and will be totally free to view.
