Blizzard at Gamescom 2020

Recommended Posts


Gamescom is going digital this year and Blizzard confirmed their digital participation in the event.

In 2019, Blizzard did not attend gamescom to focus on the development of their current and future titles.

As part of a renewed effort this year to maintain our focus on development, for our current games and our future projects, we won’t have a booth at gamescom 2019. The show is an important one for the European and global gaming community, and we’re going to miss meeting players in Cologne this year. You’ll still be able to find Blizzard gear in the gamescom 2019 shop area, and we’re looking forward to returning to the gamescom show floor in the future. We’re also looking forward to sharing more details about the projects we’re currently working on when the time is right.

This year, gamescom 2020 will be digital-only and the event runs from August 27 through August 30. Multiple game developers have confirmed their participation, including Activision Blizzard.


The preparations for the world's largest event for computer and video games are in full swing. Numerous companies have already confirmed their digital participation as partners of gamescom 2020.

We look forward to a successful gamescom 2020 with our partners and will keep you up to date on the latest commitments below.

Hmmm...Diablo II remastered announcement? *fingers crossed*

God I wish. Though I have a feeling that they'd keep that for Blizzcon

Is the company making Darktide 40k on that list?

Google says 'Fatshark' so sadly no.

      Blizzard France employees are going on strike against the planned Versailles office closure on Shadowlands launch date.
      On October 6, we reported that Blizzard would be closing their French office in Versailles, which employs at least 280 people. The first strike as per the recommendation of their union happened on October 14.
      A new call for strike against the planned Versailles office closure at Blizzard France is supposed to occur from November 24 onwards. 
      The union calls for an abandonment of the closure, diversification of the Blizzard activity in France, and investment in the care of psycho-social risks.

      It seems David Kim is the Jack of all trades in Blizzard, as he's once again moved to a new franchise within the company! The Diablo 4 Lead Systems Designer, who was very front and center at the BlizzCon D4 announcement, has moved to the position of Principal Game Designer for World of Warcraft:

      As you can see from the above, Kim has been moving around a lot, with his longest stint coming from StarCraft 2, where he started at Blizzard back in 2007, jumping in to Heroes of the Storm, back to SC2 and then Diablo 4 most recently.
      On the D4 side of things, we're not quite sure what this means, as it seems unlikely the job was "done" and so Kim could move on, and it's a lot more likely he was needed in WoW due to Shadowlands crunch (as he started the job back in September), since it was all hands on deck to get the expansion out the door. It seems likely that Kim will stay in WoW for a while at least, and it's unclear if he'll be returning to Diablo, which doesn't seem like a good thing for the 4th installment, but as it's still a long way away, it might not be that big of an issue. As spotted by Rhykker, his replacement on the D4 team seems to be  Joe Piepiora, who was promoted from within the D4 team.
      On the WoW side of things, some players have been complaining about the game having moved towards Diablo systems in the past, with World Quests and especially the RNG nature of loot, so they might not be too happy with this particular move, but Kim has been very good at balance, coming from a very heavy StarCraft background. The Principal Game Designer job title itself means working on the core systems, and if we had to hazard a guess, we'd say classes and their balancing, whether via gear or other systems, might be one of Kim's focuses.
