Blizzard cancels BlizzCon 2022

Some announcements will still arrive

BlizzCon 2022, which was planned to take place next February, has been cancelled, according to an announcement from Blizzard.

Blizzard will instead take the time to focus on working on its games that are currently in development and supporting its teams. The company's shift in strategy got announced as the ongoing lawsuit against Activision Blizzard is going on, as well as other investigations.

“Any BlizzCon event takes every single one of us to make happen, an entire-company effort, fuelled by our desire to share what we create with the community we care about so much,” the company said. “At this time, we feel the energy it would take to put on a show like this is best directed towards supporting our teams and progressing development of our games and experiences.”

Even though BlizzCon won’t be happening, Blizzard will give updates on Diablo 4 and Overwatch 2, both of which are still in development, along with World of Warcraft patch updates.
