      What announcements can we expect at this year's BlizzCon?
      World of Warcraft
      Even though Patch 7.1 is quite fresh and Trial of Valor opens next week, we will find out what's coming, perhaps Patch 7.2? New content, raids and the story revolving around Iliidan?
      Diablo III
      This one's quite high on the expectations list. Season 8 launched with no content changes. With the Necromancer fan art leaks and the anniversary celebration, we are likely going to see a new expansion. If we get a new class I assume we will also get a new expansion. We got Crusaders with the launch of Reaper of Souls, right? To keep the game fresh, there absolutely needs to be an announcement of some sort.
      Heroes of the Storm
      With no Hero announcements after Samuro, we will definitely see some new Heroes. My bets are on Varian and even Malthael given the Diablo's anniversary celebration. I think we'll also see new maps, maybe a Haunted Mines overhaul or even new features added to the game, like Clans. 
      Overwatch
      We'll see Sombra and possibly new Heroes and maps.
      Hearthstone
      Hearthstone's fourth expansion is expected to be announced at BlizzCon.
      Rest assured, we'll be covering every panel. Stay tuned and share your thoughts in the comments below!
