Oof. Blizzard stock not looking so hot
Considering everything that has gone on recently, including the pandemic we're still in, very understandable.
Lol ofcourse. They have nothing to show.God forbid they actually produce entertaining content.
Makes sense; the company is suffering some serious turbulence, and Blizzcon has typically been a rough thing even during the smoothest of times in recent years. Would be a terribly put together thing in their current status.
Aw thats sad. I hope it will help to develop the updates faster
Lol ofcourse. They have nothing to show.God forbid they actually produce entertaining content. /quote]dude they literally said they are still going to announce stuff. just they arnt doing a big event.
I hope we still get an event in 2022 but I understand the bumps and several things Blizzard had to deal with over the past couple years.
I don't want to be "that guy" going on about how this looks really bad, but it looks really bad.
Hopefully there will still be a charity pet and a release of a (what would have been) Blizzcon Online virtual goodie bag for their games. I am almost certain of the Charity pet, but not so hopeful on the goodie bag thing.edit: This also screams to me that they are VERY behind internally on a number of work streams, and diverting resources from doing any else is what they hope to use to recover some progress.
I guess the next Blizzcon will be... Imaginary !
This bodes poorly for 9.2Like... you would think they would have something to announce. Or maybe the next expansion?
makes sence, they have nothing to present or people care about. Diablo 4 is 2 years away, overwatch 2 no one cares, hearthstone addon 150 no one cares, new wow addon not before 2023 .. diablo immortal no one cares, people will just spam and meme about the investigation..
Considered the reputation they got from last year and this one, it's better to stop doing this event and investment into something else.
This is the right thing to do, especially considering all the events going on and can you imagine holding the cosplay costume events.My guess is they are rethinking everything at this point
Blizz cant keep using the covid excuse, its getting old. Alot of other gaming companies are not having as many problems as blizzard is in regards to it. Look at ff14, they did an entire media tour during covid. Blizz has no excuse but to basicly say they have nothing to show.
Blizzcon was founded as a way to "celebrate everything Blizzard". At this time, the only people worth celebrating are the fans. Not the company and they definitely should not be running events that allow the attention to go to some peoples' heads. They've stopped the two-way communication for over a decade now anyway, if the future means announcements via youtube video packages as and when they're ready (instead of stockpiling for a single weekend of the year) with up-voting a comments turned off (like Square Enix keep doing) then I really don't think the community is losing anything from this decision.
