BlizzCon 2022 Cancelled, Blizzard Takes Step Back and Pauses Online Event

BlizzCon 2022

Disappointing news comes for the Blizzard community looking forward to an online event next year, as BlizzCon 2022 has been cancelled, as Blizzard takes a step and pauses the online event to prioritize supporting their teams.

In a post made in the official Blizzard website, the BlizzCon team apologized to fans and said it was a tough decision on their part to cancel the event — which would have been held on February 2022.

Any BlizzCon event takes every single one of us to make happen, an entire-company effort, fueled by our desire to share what we create with the community we care about so much. At this time, we feel the energy it would take to put on a show like this is best directed towards supporting our teams and progressing development of our games and experiences.

The cancellation comes in the wake of the Activision Blizzard lawsuit the company is currently facing, with CEO Bobby Kotick having addressed that people are their greatest asset and that Blizzard is committed to improving the work environment for its employees. However several big names have left the company in recent months, including former president J. Allen Brack, Blizzard Entertainment lawyer Claire Hartm and Overwatch 2 executive producer Chacko Sonny.

Blizzard is set to release news and updates in the coming months ahead despite not holding the online event, and is set to reimagine what the future of BlizzCon could look like moving forward.
