Blizzard

  • Deciding to opt out of Gamescom 2019 which takes place in Cologne, Germany later this year, Blizzard explain in their latest post why they won’t be attending.

Their reason is to concentrate on “renewed” game development according to their statement.

  • Blizzard have already shared their dates for Blizzcon 2019, which celebrates its 25 years of the original Warcraft game. This is likely where they will concentrate their efforts for announcements this year.
