BlizzCon 2020 is canceled due to coronavirus

The Blizzard today announced that BlizzCon 2020 has been canceled. The reason, of course, is the coronavirus pandemic that still plagues the world.

According to Saralyn Smith, executive producer at BlizzCon, although the company has looked for ways to host this year’s annual gaming event, it has not been able to figure out a way to make it work responsibly.

“Several weeks ago, I shared an update on our uncertainty about BlizzCon this year. Since then, a lot has changed … and a lot hasn’t changed either. During that time, we had many discussions about what it would be like to hold a convention in light of all the health and safety considerations we would have. We also talked about the different paths we could take and how each can be complicated by fluctuations in national and local health guidelines in the coming months. Finally, after considering our options, we arrived at the difficult decision not to hold BlizzCon this year. ”

 

We are deeply disappointed with this decision and imagine that many of you will feel the same. I really love BlizzCon and I know this is a feeling shared by everyone at Blizzard. We will very much miss the connection with so many of you at the convention. ”

Smith adds that Blizzard is studying and discussing the possibility of an online version that captures the spirit of BlizzCon. Unfortunately, for now, the company is not ready to reveal details about this replacement online.
