Blizzard President J. Allen Brack says BlizzCon will reappear in digital form “early next year.”
TwitchCon San Diego 2020 is the latest in the ongoing series of in-person events suffering cancellation or delay due to COVID-19 concerns.
In early April, TCN covered Blizzard’s statement on the uncertainty regarding BlizzCon and the COVID-19 pandemic this year. Blizzard posted a follow-up statement today, informing the community that they have “come to the difficult decision not to hold BlizzCon this year.”
Along with sporting events, concerts, and entertainment production, conventions have found themselves on shaky ground this year.
