BlizzCon Is Ready To Celebrate 10 Years


Blizzard has confirmed the dates for BlizzCon this year, which is also its 10th anniversary. Attendees will need to be in Anaheim from November 4 and 5 if attending in person, with streams happening on November 5 and 6 in Australia.
“With more live games and upcoming content than ever before, 2016 is shaping up to be an exciting year for Blizzard gamers,” said Mike Morhaime, CEO and cofounder of Blizzard Entertainment. “We can’t wait to celebrate our 25-year anniversary with everyone during an epic weekend of gaming, esports, and great company at our 10th BlizzCon.”
A ticket to attend the event is not cheap, $199US, or $265aud, but reports from past events say its worth it. Tickets will go on sale in two batches and can be purchased here. The first batch will be released at 12pm April 21 with the second at 3am April 24. Those who want to rub elbows with the developers in a more intimate setting can do so, with a special dinner behind held on November 3, with tickets set to go on sale Thursday, April 28 at 12 p.m. AEST, priced at $750 USD each, but a portion of that money will go to the local childrens hospital.
