BlizzCon will start with the usual opening ceremony at 5PM ET / 2PM PT on Friday, February 19th, and it’s slated to last for an hour and 10 minutes. From then, the convention splits off into five different broadcasts, each focusing on a different game. All broadcasts are scheduled to wrap up by 8:40PM ET / 5:40PM PT. If you’re looking for news on games, it’ll likely happen on day one.
However, it’ll start up again on Saturday, February 20th, at 3PM ET / 12PM PT. The day two schedule consists of Q&A sessions, community showcases, and additional entertainment, like a Diablo tabletop campaign hosted by the Critical Role crew, cites the verge.
How to watch BlizzCon 2021 live
Being an online-only event, it goes without saying that you'll be able to tune into the action from home.
The show is expected to be broadcast on the BlizzCon site, YouTube, and Twitch, so you can watch along wherever you'd like. Note that since the show is broadcast on multiple 'channels', it would be impossible to watch everything live - but Blizzard has promised that everything will be uploaded afterwards to watchon-demand whenever you'd like.
What to expect from BlizzConc 2021?
BlizzConline 2021 will run across five separate tracks simultaneously: World of Warcraft, Hearthstone, Diablo, Overwatch, and Strategy - which looks to mostly be Starcraft stuff, and some discussion of Blizzard's old Warcraft games.
The big announcements are expected to be for Diablo and Overwatch.
'Diablo: What's Next' starts at 11:10pm GMT on 19 February, and promises discussion of "the latest content coming to Sanctuary." That most likely means a mix of Diablo Immortal and Diablo 4 news, and maybe even the rumoured Diablo 2 remake. There will also be a 40-minute 'Diablo Deep Dive' and a 'Diablo Developer Roundtable', so the committed fan might have to tune into all three.
The big Overwatch announcements are likely to be packed into 'Behind the Scenes of Overwatch 2', in which Blizzard promises the devs will "share some work in progress." The rest of the Overwatch panels focus on the voice cast, soundtrack, and some competitive play however, so you can probably skip them if you're only here for news on the sequel.
|Hearthstone fans will also get their own Deep Dive, while there's a 'What's Next' session for World of Warcraft too - though all of those announcements have leaked online already, revealing a new content drop called Shadowlands: Chains of Domination and the release of Burning Crusade Classic, with the legendary 2007 expansion coming back just as you remember it, cites techadvisor.|
