In a recent interview with the Los Angeles Times, Blizzard Entertainment President Mike Ybarra confirmed that BlizzCon will be returning in 2023 and will be an in-person event.
Ybarra told the outlet:
“We previously announced we’re taking a pause on BlizzCon while we reimagine it for the future but do want to return to a live event that enables us to celebrate the community. We recently hired a new leader of BlizzCon, April McKee, who is hard at work on that plan. … We are committed to bringing back BlizzCon in 2023.”
BlizzCon has not been held as an in-person event since 2019.
