BlizzCon is finally back after a nearly four-year absence since 2019, here is all you need to know on how to watch it, dates, and what is on. 

There hasn’t been an in-person BlizzCon since 2019, and BlizzCon Online wasn’t held in 2022 due to the publisher wanting to focus on the development of Overwatch 2. However, after many setbacks, BlizzCon 2023 is set to go this November, and it’s an in-person event as well. 

Set in the Anaheim Convention Center as per usual, the event will be running from November 3 to 4, and will see various announcements, panels, a performance by K-pop group LE SSERAFIM, and even see the return of the Overwatch World Cup. 

And just like every previous iteration of BlizzCon, this year’s will be broadcast live online for fans who can’t make it to the convention. 

So here is all you need to know on how to watch it and the dates. 

BlizzCon 2023: Dates

BlizzCon 2023 will run from November 3 to November 4, however, it’s not known if various events and performances in the convention will be streamed like in 2018’s edition, or if only the opening ceremony will be streamed like in 2019. 

Tickets will go on sale on September 29 at 12 PM PT. However, Blizzard has not announced what time their streams will start. 

We will update you here once we know more about the broadcast times and details.
