Blizzard Outlines gamescom 2017 Schedule

Share this:

In just under a week, gamescom will be kicking off in Germany and that means gaming news, previews and more. One studio attending will be Blizzard, who has outlined what they plan to show at the event.

First off, there will be no press conference for Blizzard this year, which means the chances of a new game announcement or even an expansion might be out of the picture. However, we will have some Overwatch stuff to look forward to as well as a livestream and more.

  • A new map from Overwatch will be shown at the Overwatch Insights panel, and a new Overwatch short will be shown as well.
  • At least one new Heroes of the Storm hero will be shown (Spoiler: It’s almost assuredly Kel’Thuzad).
  • A new co-op commander will be shown at the StarCraft 2 panel.
  • Patch 7.3 and the new dungeon will be shown at the World of Warcraft panel.
  • There will be a new Hearthstone Fireside Gathering raid against the Lich King.
  • There’s a 1.25 hour livestream in here, so something else could be announced.
