We already knew for a while that BlizzCon 2020 won’t happen, at least not in the form we’re used to. Even a few months back, Blizzard has planned something to replace BlizzCon 2020, which was cancelled because of the global pandemic (duh).
And now we know date. BlizzCon Online is scheduled for February 19-20 next year, and just like the name suggest it will be an online show. We don’t know exactly how it will look like, but it will still feature a massive community showcase, such as cosplay & art contests. You can also contribute by sending your own photos & videos.
More details will be shared soon. For now, you can read more in the official post below (I’ve cut all of the details about community showcase since it was really long, if you’re interested head for the link below).
Attune your chronometers, flip your hourglasses, set a notification on your phone—however you mark the passage of time, save the date for BlizzConline™, set to take place February 19–20, 2021!
While circumstances are keeping us from gathering in person this year, we’re putting together a little something early next year to channel the spirit of BlizzCon into the form of an online show. We still have a lot of planning to do, and it’ll be some time before we’re ready to share more details—but we wanted to provide a heads-up on how you can be a part of the online fun.
Gear Up for the Community Showcase
One of the events we’re planning for BlizzConline is the Community Showcase—an opportunity for cosplay crafters, artists, and other community creators to participate in the show and put their talent on display through a mix of world-class competition and exciting exhibitions. And thanks to the all-online nature of the show, we’re able to make these events accessible to even more people from around the globe. We’re also assembling a special March of the Murlocs and inviting everyone to send us images and videos to join in.
If you’re interested in participating in the March of the Murlocs or the Community Showcase, please be mindful of the appropriate health guidelines for any group-based photos, videos, and other submissions. Read on to discover what you need to know to begin your preparation!
Keep the deadlines above in mind as you get to work—and if you have any questions about the contests or exhibitions, you can reach out to us at [email protected].
We can’t wait to see what you create—and maybe even share it with the world during BlizzConline!
