Blizzard Cancels BlizzCon 2024

April 26, 2024 by Alex Novichenko

Blizzard has decided to cancel BlizzCon 2024 without specifying a reason, but confirmed the event will return in the future. The company will focus on other industry events this year, including launches like World of Warcraft: The War Within and Diablo IV's expansion, Vessel of Hatred.
They also plan multiple global events to celebrate the 30th anniversary of Warcraft. This shift in strategy follows a series of challenges, including the COVID-19 pandemic, recent layoffs within Microsoft's gaming division, and a lack of major new titles to announce for the upcoming year.
