Back in December, Blizzard Entertainment confirmed the dates for BlizzCon as being February 19th and 20th as well as reiterating this would be an online event. That is down to COVID-19 and the various restrictions in place to halt the spread. Now, Blizzard has confirmed that BlizzCon Online will hence be known as BlizzConline, and the company has also detailed what to expect from each day. Expect announcements of what the company has been working on, and multiple channels that will deep dive into different products. This includes announcements for Overwatch 2.
The details of what to expect over the two days are below:
Day 1 will kick off at 2 p.m. PST on Friday, February 19, with an opening segment that includes a first look at some of the latest game content the development teams have been working on. Then for the next three-plus hours, you’ll have the option to tune in to one of the six different themed channels, so you can decide whether you want to sample a little bit of everything or dig deeper into the games you’re interested in most.
Day 2 will pick back up at 12 p.m. PST on Saturday, February 20, with multiple channels once again, until the fun wraps up at later that afternoon. Throughout this second day, we’ll be shining a spotlight on the global Blizzard community, including the winners and outstanding entries in the Community Showcase contests and exhibitions.
You will be able to watch it all for free through Blizzard’s website as well as Twitch and YouTube. Blizzard will also save the videos so you can watch stuff you may have missed live. In addition, Blizzard is celebrating its 30th year this move so will be selling commerative items through its games and the online Blizzard store.
