Activision Blizzard has provided an overview of the schedule for its upcoming BlizzCon online event.
BlizzConline, as the free to view event is officially titled, will kick off at 2pm PT/5pm ET/10pm UK on February 19 with “a first look at some of the latest game content now in development” which is expected to feature the likes of Diablo 4, Overwatch 2 and World of Warcraft.
After the opening segment, viewers will be able to choose between six different themed channels, each offering over three hours of content digging deeper into various Blizzard games.
The event will recommence at 12pm PT/3pm ET/8pm UK on February 20, with multiple channels once again available. Day two will include Q&As with Blizzard developers and community-focused content such as cosplay and art competitions.
“We couldn’t let too much time go by without connecting with our community in the spirit of BlizzCon, and that’s what this show is all about—getting together with friends from around the world and celebrating the bonds and experiences we share through games,” said Blizzard president J. Allen Brack.
“We’re also excited to share some updates on what the teams have been working on—and while this won’t be the usual BlizzCon, the all-online format gives us a unique opportunity to shake things up a bit and create a show specifically for a community at home.”
BlizzCon is traditionally held at the Anaheim Convention Center in California each November, but last year’s event was cancelled due to the coronavirus pandemic.
In January, Activision Blizzard merged Vicarious Visions, the studio behind Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 + 2 and Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy, into Blizzard. Going forward, the Vicarious Visions team of around 200 people will be employees of Blizzard and “fully dedicated to existing Blizzard games and initiatives”.
