Blizzard cancels the next Blizzcon, it wants to support its teams

Blizzcon has been one of the mainstays of gaming events for 16 long years, during which time it has not taken place only three times. First in 2006, a year after the very first event, then in 2012 and then, of course, last year, when the cancellation of the event was caused by a coronavirus pandemic. Although it was supposed to take place at least digitally next year, Blizzard canceled BlizzConline altogether.

In a press release, the company states that although this event is very important to it and recognizes its importance, it is now better to devote the necessary resources to supporting internal teams and developing the expected game titles.

At the same time, the break should be used to invent a new form of event, which does not yet have an alternative date. It is therefore clear that a fundamental transformation will take place. Blizzard is committed to making the event safe, accessible and inclusive, whatever it may be.

Although the February event will not take place, this does not mean that we will not know anything about the upcoming games. The company currently has two highly anticipated projects underway, in addition to Overwatch 2 it is, of course Diablo IV. None of these games has a specific release date yet, hopefully the beginning of next year could bring more specific information.

Blizzard is currently facing allegations of a toxic workplace. More than 40 employees were punished as part of an internal investigation, and ways to remedy this include changing the name of a cowboy from Overwatch.
