    Blizzard have posted the schedule for DiabloWikiBlizzCon 2014 on 7th and 8th November. There are just two panels scheduled for Diablo 3 this year, one on each day.

    Friday at 2:15 – 3:15 PST – Diablo III, What’s Next. Join the Reaper of Souls developers as they discuss the new features and concepts that will be coming soon to the world of Sanctuary.

    Saturday 12:45 – 1:45 PST – Evolving Reaper of Souls. Explore the team’s ever-evolving design philosophies, and learn about changes now in development. Then watch the developers team up with the community to create a new Legendary item for looting in a future patch.

    Not bristling with Diablo 3 action so it’ll be a relatively quiet event for the Diablo 3 community this year. Still, two panels to tune into and perhaps a chance to get involved with the second one if there is some online component included.

    Thanks to nobbie for the tip.

    Update: A couple of points, from comments and other conversation about the schedule:

    1) The Blizzcon schedule usually evolves and gets filled out more as the show draws closer. In past years we’ve seen panels for Diablo 3 and other games cancelled or entirely changed in content just days before the show. Do not count on this being the final form.

    2) Blizzard always leaves blank spaces for panels supporting new announcements, but doesn’t tip their content in advance. For instance, on Friday there’s nothing scheduled on the main stage for 2 hours after the opening ceremonies. That’s because they’re keeping secret whatever the panel(s) immediately after the Opening Ceremony will cover. Starcraft expansion #2? Diablo 3 expansion #2? Warcraft 4? Titan Reborn? Unknown, but there will certainly be a lot more going on at the show than you see confirmed on this advance schedule.
