Blizzard has released a statement in regard to the status of BlizzCon 2020, and while the company is remaining hopeful that the event can take place as expected, there’s still a good chance that it may not be possible. The company claims that it’s still actively working on its plans, so if things do turn around between now and next fall, the potential for the show to happen is there.
In the recent statement, BlizzCon Exeuctive Producer, Saralyn Smith, explained things in a little more detail.
“While we’re all hopeful things will look better later in the year, the bottom line is that at this point it’s too early to know whether BlizzCon 2020 will be feasible. The health of our community, employees, and everyone who helps with the show is our top consideration. It might be a few months before we know for certain if or how we’ll proceed, but as soon as we have a meaningful update, we’ll share it.”
We don’t have a date for when Overwatch 2 will be released, but we sure know that a new hero will join the “good guys” team. Her name is Sojurn, and she's not only the first black hero but also the first Canadian. The name may sound familiar as she showed up before Overwatch 2 was even a thing. She was the one who hunted Doomfist’s accountant, Maximilien, and she also appeared in many old photos of the overwatch team.
The hero was confirmed by Jeff Kaplan, the game’s director as “ the first Canadian member of Overwatch”
We have no idea what abilities she may have, but a wild guess that they will be focus around guns and she probably won't be a melee hero. Then again, anything and everything is possible. We're kind of curious about how we're hearing about the introduciton of Sojurn over Echo, though. In case you don’t know who Echo is,...
After announcing Diablo Immortal and Blizzcon 2018, many fans lost hope for the Diablo series. BlizzCon 2019, however, revealed that Diablo IV is in fact coming, and it looks just gorgeous. The event was marked by the one of a kind trailer that we've place above, which is honestly way scarier than many horror movies.
As strange as it might sound, the game seems more a sequel to Diablo 2 instead of a followup to Diablo 3, and if you played the game long enough, you know what we mean. Let’s start with Diablo 3’s detailed story and action scenes. The focus is on the “big action” as Tyrael return between his brothers. The story is great, the action is well placed, but that’s not the mark od the Diablo series we fell in love with. Diablo 4 is more of a sequel to Diablo 2 because of the huge quantities of blood you see in only one scene, how it’s spreading across...

Blizzcon training documents serve as evidence that Overwatch
2 will be showcased at BlizzCon this year. Word comes directly from ESPN, which
claims that the game will have a significant PvE mode, along with a new
narrative and missions that include “a four-player story experience set in Rio de
Janeiro.” That same mode is said to include “hero talents and in-game items,”
whatever that means. ESPN also claims that a new multiplayer mode called Push
will make its debut and will supposedly feature a new map that is located in
Toronto. There’s word that there will be at least one new hero, while both of
the aforementioned game modes will, in fact, be playable at Blizzcon shortly after
Overwatch 2 makes its debut.
And, for what it’s worth, this information goes right in
line with that report from Kotaku in June of 2019 that claimed a new FPS – one that
was set in the StarCraft universe – had been cancelled, at least temporarily,
to work on Overwatch 2 and Diablo 4,...
After Blizzard nearly knocked the world off its axis at BlizzCon
2018 by announcing the mobile-only Diablo Immortal and leaving us in the dark
about Diablo 4, Blizzcon 2019 could offer the relief we’ve all be waiting for.
A new book called “The Art of Diablo” is set to launch on November 3rd, and an
advertisement for that book in a German magazine Game Star, hints at Diablo
four with the following phrase:
“contains artwork from “Diablo 1, Diablo 2, Diablo 3, and
Adding additional hype to what could be shurugged off as a
typo is the fact that the book is apparently co-authored by senior Blizzard
writer Robert Brooks. And, a recent report from Kotaku indicates that insiders
have said that Blizzard is planning to announce Diablo 4 at Blizzcon 2019.
This is certainly good news considering we’ve been waiting for Diablo 4 for several years and we honestly have more hope than ever that we’ll see it sooner than later. Blizzcon...
