BlizzCon 2018 Dates Announced, Here's When Tickets Go On Sale

Southern California gets its annual Blizzard

Blizzard has announced the dates for this year's BlizzCon. The even will be held again at the Anaheim Convention Center in Southern California and will take place on November 2 and 3. Tickets will go on sale on two dates: Thursday, May 10 and Saturday, May 12.

The tickets will be sold in waves with the first wave of tickets selling on May 9 at 7 pm PT/10 pm ET. The second wave of tickets will go on sale on May 12 at 10 am PT/ 1 pm ET. Tickets go fast so if you're interested in attending BlizzCon be sure to get in early.

BlizzCon is Blizzard's annual convention to celebrate all things Blizzard. That usually includes new content reveals for Blizzard games like Overwatch, World of WarCraft, Hearthstone, and more. There's also always the promise of a new Blizzard game getting a reveal.

Aside from new announcements, BlizzCon is packed with fan events like esports tournaments. Like last year, Blizzard will be folding esports into the festivities with BlizzCon Opening Week which will take place at the Blizzard Arena Los Angeles. Initial rounds of the StarCraft II World Championships Series, Heroes of the Storm Global Championship Finals, World of WarCraft Arena World Championships Finals as well as Champions of Overwatch and Hearthstone will kickoff opening week from October 25 to 29.

There's also always the option of attending BlizzCon virtually through the BlizzCon Virtual Ticket. BlizzCon streams virtual events and bonus content from the show floor which fans can access via a Virtual Ticket, so don't worry about missing out on any Blizzard news if you're unable to attend.

USgamer was at last year's BlizzCon where we brought you interviews about Hearthstone's new Dungeon Runs, as well as a dive into Overwatch lore with series lead writer Michael Chu. For more info check out the official BlizzCon website.
