    BlizzCon 2015 Dates Announced

    [​IMG]

    Blizzard has just announced that BlizzCon 2015 is happening and it's going to take place on 6-7 November at the usual venue of the Anaheim Convention Centre. Will there be big Diablo 3 new this time? Let's hope so.

    You’ve been summoned to Southern California for BlizzCon 2015! Blizzard’s ninth epic gaming convention and community celebration is returning to the Anaheim Convention Center on Friday, November 6 and Saturday, November 7, 2015. Form a party with your fellow members of the Blizzard community and get ready for two days of in-depth discussion panels with our developers, hands-on play time with the latest Blizzard games, and intense eSports tournaments featuring top pro gamers from around the world.

    BlizzCon 2015 tickets will go on sale in two batches on Wednesday, April 15 at 7 p.m. PT and Saturday, April 18 at 10 a.m. PT through the online event ticketing service Eventbrite, priced at $199 each (plus applicable taxes and fees). Check out the BlizzCon Ticket webpage for all the details.

    In addition, we’re once again planning a special pre-BlizzCon Benefit Dinner the evening of Thursday, November 5 in support of Children’s Hospital of Orange County (CHOC), where guests will have a chance to meet and chat with developers, artists, community team representatives, and others from Blizzard. Attendance to this special event will be limited, and we’ll have more information on ticket pricing and availability at a later date.

    If you can’t make it to the show in person, you’ll be able to watch from home with the BlizzCon Virtual Ticket, offering comprehensive live coverage of the event via a multichannel Internet stream. Further details on the Virtual Ticket, including pricing, availability, and programming information, will be announced at a later date.

    See the full press release or check out the BlizzCon Ticket page for more information, and be sure to visitwww.blizzcon2015.eventbrite.com at the dates and times above for a chance to purchase a ticket to the show. We hope to see you there!

    november again? Most of the past ones have been in October, with one year August.

    i always wonder how much the timing is influenced by bliz development cycles, and how much by when the Anaheim CC has an open weekend...

    I seem to vaguely remember there were heat problems during the early BlizzCons during summer months which lead to them moving subsequent events into fall season.

    Also I imagine that back then, when BlizzCon was planned as a singular, non-recurring event (or at least an irregular event) their employees were OK with having to spend summer preparing both the expo and the products/presentations instead of going on vacation. With BlizzCon being a regular, yearly product by itself by now, things might have changed.
