Waiting for the announcement of Overwatch 3 with PvE Blizzard

“Waiting for the announcement of Overwatch 3 with PvE”: Blizzard announced BlizzCon 2023, but fans didn’t like it

The cancellation of Overwatch 2’s PvE mode, as expected, met with resentment from Blizzard fans, so the American developer decided to soften the impact of the awkward announcement of the highly anticipated game News about the return of the BlizzCon festival to the face-to-face format.

As a reminder, BlizzCon 2020 has been canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic. In February 2021 it was replaced by the online festival BlizzConline, but there will be no more event in 2022 didn’t last at all (although they would).

Blizzard Entertainment President Mike Ybarra talked about plans to hold BlizzCon 2023 in traditional mode last summer, but it’s only now that a full announcement has been made.

As has been announced, after four years of digital festivals, BlizzCon 2023 will take place on November 3-4, 2023 at the Anaheim, California City Convention Center, well known to fans of these events.

Details of the BlizzCon 2023 program, including ticketing, cosplay, and contest information, should be announced in June: “The community has always made this event special and we can’t wait to see you all again.”.

Despite the positive nature of the announcement, under BlizzCon 2023 teaser trailer got 1.5 times more dislikes than likes. However, this has nothing to do with the festival itself.

The comments sizzled with derogatory remarks about Blizzard over the removal of Overwatch 2’s PvE mode (“I’m waiting for the announcement of Overwatch 3 with PvE”) announced at BlizzCon 2019 and the end of active support for Heroes of the Storm.
