BlizzConline Schedule Released; Spotlights On WoW And Diablo

Overwatch 2 may not be a big star, but Diablo and World of Warcraft are present in spades

Blizzard Entertainment has released the schedule for BlizzConline — the online version of the event formerly known as BlizzCon.

So begins the glut of speculation – as the schedule itself does little more than offer panel titles, times and IP-centric tagging of ‘What panel talks about what game’, the truthseekers can now take it upon themselves to read between the lines and figure out where the big surprises may lay.

While some recent news has already dampened the biggest of big ticket items that people were hoping for (Check out this bummer of a headline, Diablo IV And Overwatch 2 Won’t Release In 2021 According To Earnings Call), there is still a generous amount of ‘Deep Dive’ content targeting both Diablo and World of Warcraft, with developer Q&A panels.

Some other highlights include:

  • A panel titled Where It All Started: Blizzard’s Early Years, which promises to give a look at the fascinating history of Blizzard.
  • The World of Warcraft: Cooking Workshop, presented by cooking/gaming streamer Lulaboo, which just sounds like a heck of a fun time.
  • BlizzConline Presents: A Critical Role Diablo Campaign – Oh my stars, a full-blown DnD micro-campaign with the cast of Critical Role? Set in the Diablo universe? PASS ME THE POPCORN, I AM GETTING COMFORTABLE FOR THIS.

Overwatch 2

As for what time you should set your clocks to make sure you don’t miss a thing, Kotaku Australia has put together a simple list of start times:

SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 20

  • 9 a.m. AEDT (Sydney, Melbourne, Canberra, Tasmania)
  • 8 a.m. AEST (Brisbane)
  • 6 a.m. AWST (Perth)

Surprisingly enough, I find myself in a prime position (Tasmania represent) to kick off BlizzCon with my morning coffee in hand – refreshing!
