“The health of our community, employees, and everyone who helps with the show is our top consideration,” continued the statement from Blizzard. “It might be a few months before we know for certain if or how we’ll proceed, but as soon as we have a meaningful update, we’ll share it.”
Only time will tell if Blizzcon will happen online instead. Either way, we are sad to see the event get cancelled and look forward to what Blizzard do next.
