This year is our 11th BlizzCon, and we’d love for you to join us in celebrating at the Anaheim Convention Center in Anaheim, California on Friday, November 3 and Saturday, November 4, 2017.

Tickets

Tickets to attend BlizzCon 2017 will be priced at $199 USD (plus applicable taxes and fees) each and will be available for purchase in two separate batches.

The first batch goes on sale at 7 p.m. Pacific time on Wednesday, April 5, and the second batch goes on sale at 10 a.m. Pacific time on Saturday, April 8.

In addition to serving as a gathering place for Blizzard Entertainment gaming communities, BlizzCon will offer attendees a chance to enjoy:

  • Hands-on play time with the latest versions of Blizzard Entertainment games
  • Global finals for Blizzard esports, featuring top pro gamers from around the world
  • In-depth discussion panels with Blizzard game developers and artists
  • Community contests with great prizes
  • Commemorative merchandise based on Blizzard Entertainment’s game universes
  • More activities and attractions to be announced on www.blizzcon.com

In addition, an exclusive pre-BlizzCon dinner to benefit Children’s Hospital of Orange County (CHOC) will also be held the evening of Thursday, November 2, from 6:30 p.m. to 10:30 p.m. PT at the Hilton Anaheim Hotel in Anaheim, CA. BlizzCon Benefit Dinner attendees will get the chance to eat, drink, and be merry alongside Blizzard developers, artists, and community representatives while supporting a great cause.

Tickets to the BlizzCon Benefit Dinner go on sale Wednesday, April 12 at 7 p.m. PT. Approximately 200 tickets will be available for $750 USD each (plus applicable taxes and fees; limit two per household), and Blizzard Entertainment will donate the proceeds to Children’s Hospital of Orange County (CHOC).

For more information on BlizzCon 2017 and the BlizzCon Benefit Dinner, visit www.blizzcon.com

Attendee Details

After you purchase tickets, you will have until July 14 at 8 p.m. PT to edit the following information for each attendee through your Universe account:

  • First and last name of attendee (to be printed on the badge)
  • Email address of attendee
  • Character name (optional)

If you don’t know who you are purchasing tickets for, enter your own full name and email address for all of the tickets. In this case, the ticket purchaser must bring *all* of the printed bar code emails, along with matching photo ID, to BlizzCon to pick up badges. While all of the badges will show the ticket purchaser’s name, photo ID will only be checked at the time of badge pickup.

NoteIf you change the name of an attendee for a badge, only the emailed barcode and valid photo ID bearing the name of that attendee can be used to claim their badge. A confirmation email without a barcode will not be sufficient to claim a badge. You must have the barcode. Barcodes will be sent out at a later date.

But still no Death Knight in Hearthstone, right? Feels bad, man.
Hopefully we'll see a new game, and just like you wrote, Diablo 4 would really be a good one indeed.

I can't see Blizz announcing D4, with the Necromancer for D3 being released this summer.  Knowing them, the Necromancer addition is to keep people interested and test out new ideas, while they work on other projects.

I'm pretty sure there won't be a Diablo IV, I believe I've heard some Dev said that sometime. And anyways, the whole idea feels pretty played out. If they are going for a new hack'n'slash there will probably be fron another universe, or something very different.

But I'm a little curious what Blizzard have in mind for both Diablo and Starcraft universe. The story of Starcraft is done, after a lot of years. Diablo needs a twist as well.

I dunno, the interwebs found blizzard copyrighted the name "return of the lich king" would be a great hearthstone expansion to bring in a dk hero class :D   ( i will never give up)

i'd imagine we'll see the last raid patch for legion announced and then probably what will follow. The what will follow part is where they will sink or sail this ship. With the legion likely being gone the big enemy we've fought since WC3 is gone. While they dealt with this with the retcon, I just don't find the whole void lord thing that alluring. So while a Nzoth old god expac might be cool, I feel they would really need to step it up with the legion gone.

I guess it's going to be a Warcraft novel rather than an expansion for one of the games, as much as I'd like to be wrong.

honestly as long as its not the next wow expansion I am okay with it XD

could also potentially be a dungeon title, i remember a while back everyone thought "eye of ashara" was going to be an xpac name.

      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!
