Well, it’s about that time of year. After Blizzard’s press release yesterday I kind of figured they were getting ready to announce Blizzcon. The event will run Oct. 22-23 at the Anaheim Convention center again despite the rumors floating around about Vegas as a possible location.
Of course, the announcement of Blizzcon is only the beginning. Expect lots of hype for the upcoming Cataclysm expansion as well as Starcraft II and Diablo III. Don’t forget that tickets will be going on sale within the coming months and be prepared! It looks as if Blizzard plans on implementing the same queue system from last year. This means tickets will sell out incredibly fast and they will only be available for online purchase.
More information about the convention can be found at the official website for the event.
Personally, what I find most exciting about Blizzcon’s date is that it gives us a good window for the Cataclysm expansion’s release date. Blizzard has never released a major patch, let alone an expansion before the convention. Instead, the try to push them out the week after the convention, slightly before Christmas. So, look for Cataclysm to hit shelves early November!
