According to an announcement by BlizzCon executive producer Sarlyn Smith through the BlizzCon site, BlizzCon 2021 has been canceled. The company plans to roll back things with a global event early next year, which will combine its recent online program, BlizzConline, with “small-to-personal celebrations”.
Smith said the COVID-19 epidemic and California’s changing safety guidelines are due to abrupt cancellation. Blizzard says those issues have left Blizzard and its partners unsure whether they will be able to keep an event at the level expected by fans until November.
This is not the first hit the company has taken of late. With recent departure Overwatch Director, Jeff Kaplan and Overwatch Renaud Galland, the main character artist, is the uncertainty for the company until recently.
while Overwatch 2 Apparently on the horizon – Blizzard released more information about the game just a few days ago – a string of bad news has left fans wondering what the company’s future looks like. IGN recently published a report about the company’s status, which outlines a list of pain points the company has endured over the years.
Despite this cancellation there may be even more information about Overwatch and the way for Diablo fans, with the early 2022 show being confirmed by Smith via the same post. We expect more information about this online-physical hybrid phenomenon later this year.
