Blizzcon 2010: Coming Soon?
It’s getting to be that time again.
Last year, people were questioning if there was going to be another Blizzcon so soon. After all, Blizzcon ’09 had just wrapped up and Cataclysm had been announced. The player base was in a tizzy as they left the convention with visions of New Barrens and Grunties dancing in their heads. Would Blizzard have another convention right on the heels of the announcement of WoW’s big expansion?
That question appeared to be answered in November when a Las Vegas hotel mistakenly posted that they would be hosting Blizzcon in July of ’10. The posting was quickly yanked, but it was enough to get people vibrating. It might have been a mistake, but at least it meant Blizzard had been toying with the idea of another convention.
Fast forward to February. Another posting, this time back in Blizzcon’s old stomping grounds of Anaheim. Word of a October 22 Blizzcon emerged, but much like the Las Vegas posting it was quickly taken down. However, the venue still shows that weekend as “open” when every other weekend around it is booked. Seems strange, unless they have something booked and just don’t want to tell folks about it.
That, and Jay Mohr tweeted that he was hosting Blizzcon – a tweet that was quickly removed.
I bring this up because it was around this time last year that Blizzcon was announced for 2009. As I said at the beginning of the post, it’s getting to be that time again. Will we get a Blizzcon announcement, an official one this time, within the next month or so?
