After 4 years, BlizzCon will be returning to the Anaheim Convention Center on November 3-4!
Blizzard today revealed details about BlizzCon 2023. After four years of online events, BlizzCon finally returns in its former glory. If you plan on attending the event, make sure to book accommodation now before it's too late.
After four years of gathering online–adventuring through Azeroth, teaming up in Overwatch, traversing the fields of Sanctuary, or warming yourself by the fire in the Tavern–it’s finally time to gather in person once more. We are happy to announce that BlizzCon will be returning to the Anaheim Convention Center on November 3-4!
Our players are at the heart of what makes BlizzCon great–a place where games are the common ground for connection and friendship. Whether you’re coming to hang out with friends you only ever get to see online, celebrating epic moments in the games we love, exploring what’s on offer in the convention center halls, or eager to learn what’s next for our universes, BlizzCon is being created for you. It’s the community that has always made this event so special, and we can’t wait to see you all again.
We’ll be back with more details about the show next month including ticketing information, cosplay and other competition details, and more.
For those of you who want to book accommodation now, our hotel blocks are now available. Whether you’ll be joining us in person or online, we can’t wait to share what we’ve been working on and celebrate together. We are counting down the days alongside you.

Blizzard President Mike Ybarra posted an update on BlizzCon 2023 in a short tweet yesterday.
While Blizzard still hasn't officially announced the return of BlizzCon this year, the latest tweet from Mike Ybarra has sparked some hope about the event. According to the tweet, the Blizzard President conducted a "BlizzCon review" and apparently we'll "learn more soon when the team is ready".
Placeholder for tweet 1648463874851749888 Many folks would love to see BlizzCon return after a 3-year hiatus. Last year, Mike Ybarra talked about Blizzard's commitment to bringing back BlizzCon in 2023. This year's BlizzCon would most likely take place between November 2-5. We'll keep an eye out for the latest BlizzCon news!
Due to the ongoing health crisis, Blizzard revealed there won't be a BlizzCon this year either and we can expect a similar event to BlizzConline 2021 in early 2022.
Greetings Blizzard community,
I hope you’re all staying safe and well. As guidelines in California around in-person gatherings continue to evolve and the status of the pandemic fluctuates around the globe, the teams across Blizzard have been discussing what this means for one of the events we miss the most: BlizzCon. We know some of you might be wondering about your own plans to potentially cross the country—not to mention oceans—and meet your friends, family, and fellow community members in California, so today, we wanted to give you a heads-up that we’ve decided we will not be holding BlizzCon this year.
Building an in-person BlizzCon is an epic and complex affair that takes many months of preparation—not just for us, but also for the many talented production partners, esports pros, hosts, entertainers, artists, and other collaborators we team up with locally and globally to put all of the pieces together. The ongoing complexities and uncertainties of the pandemic have impacted our ability to properly move forward on many of these fronts, and ultimately we’re now past the point where we’d be able to develop the kind of event we’d want to create for you in November.
But we don’t want to let too long go by before we connect with everyone again. So in the meantime, we’re planning a global event for the early part of next year, combining an online show along the lines of our recent BlizzConline with smaller in-person gatherings, and we’ll share more as our plans come together.
We very much look forward to celebrating with you all again. Until then, we’ll see you in Azeroth, Outland, Sanctuary, and all the other worlds we call home.
–Saralyn Smith, Executive Producer of BlizzCon

Well, we've seen the big official leak as someone at Blizzard "accidentally" shared the press kit too early and we found out about 9.1 and Burning Crusade Classic, but there are a few more interesting rumors and leaks we should take a look at.
First off is a pretty credible source, as they called the Diablo 4 and Overwatch 2 announcements before previous BlizzCons:
Nothing too earh-shattering there, but it all seems very plausible and likely to happen.
Then there's another one that's been floating around for a while, which is just as likely to be a simple photoshop as an official document, but the info in it is also pretty likely very much correct:
The delayed release of the server groups with brand new Classics starting up with each cycle was also confirmed in the official leak, so the above does seem to be correct, even if it turns out to not be the real deal.
And then there's this, which doesn't seem to have any particular source or credibility, so it's just speculation, but with an interesting take with the final point:
It's mostly a roundup of the old and new leaks with some personal additions, and they missed the mark a little on the number of bosses in the Maw raid. It also seems a little unlikely that we'll get tier sets back this soon (but we're hoping!), but that last one is definitely something to be hyped about, despite still most likely being pure speculation/imagination. Opening the WoW BlizzConline section with a cinematic like that would definitely go over well, but it's extremely unlikely to happen, at least as is written above, due to the word bitch already being removed from the game when Garrosh said it to Sylvanas.
