Default Blizzcon 2014



That's not quite sticking to their new "only every two years" plan but maybe this year is the exception due to WoW's 10th Anniversary?

Maybe they are trying to start on an even number?

Could just be an erroneous script updating the date, too.

Don't get your panties in a wad of this just yet...

Based on when previous Blizzcon's have been announced, Blizzcon 2014, if it's happening, should be announced any day now, so we'll know if it's real or not soon enough.

What could they possibly announce besides project Titan which is massively unlikely at this point. I suppose by that point announcing a new Diablo 3 Expansion and showcasing Legacy of the Void might be a thing.

Why are people still talking about Titan?

Was't Titan killed? As in: dead-dead. Not Kael'thas-dead, not Ragnaros-dead, just dead.

From what I understand of it, Titan as it had been up until that news announcement was scrapped. 70% of the team was moved over to WoW while the remaining 30% stayed behind to rework Titan from the ground up.

I could see a Hearthstone expansion with the addition of a Death Knight hero. It's bound to happen. But that's not enough to carry a Blizzcon.

Not Blizzcon 2014 related, but they have announced their schedule for PAX East 2014 on April 11th with some interesting stuff (bolded by me).

Warlords of Draenor hands-on demo featuring updated character models and the intro experience for the upcoming expansion.
Hands-on time with the in-development Diablo III: Ultimate Evil Edition, playable on PlayStation 4.
A chance to find out whats in the cards for Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft, and play the mobile version on iPad.
A brand-new demo for Heroes of the Storm, featuring new Heroes playable for the first time anywhere outside of Blizzard.
Blizzard developers will be on-hand to chat about your favorite games.
Blizzard developers will also be giving a presentation at the Albatross Theatre on Friday, April 11 at 10:30 a.m. EDT titled Heroes of the Storm: The Ultimate Blizzard Mashup (streamed live on one of the official PAX Twitch channels for those not in attendance).
And did we mention there will be giveaways, prizes, and more? If not . . . there will be giveaways, prizes, and more!

The what's the in the cards part makes me think if a Hearthstone expansion is to be announced, it'll be there (which makes sense as Hearthstone itself was announced last PAX).

They could have the Legacy of the Void Cinematic and probably the Warlords of Draenor one considering i doubt it will be out around that time.. We could see Hearthstone's first or second adventure there along with there being major focus on Heroes of the Storm (maybe open beta at this point or essentially with masses of invites going out ). Another panel on the Warcraft Movie along with maybe some of the cast this time. Diablo getting the Ps4 treatment with getting tons of details on that and potentially a major patch to!

I would like it if we heard something on Titan in its new form... Even if its just a name and a mini trailer to get rid of the whole Titan craze because even i am getting tired of people constantly expecting to see Titan each event Blizzard hold/attend >.<.

Increased the price, don't think I can afford it this year. And I don't think this year will have alot of WoW announcements.

I'm not planning on going to BlizzCon, but I live near Anaheim so I'm up for a get-together off convention grounds (schedule allowing).

If any of you need to flee the state for any reason, I'm only 90 miles across the border in Arizona...

I know it's unlikely anytime soon, but I really would like to see Titan make a comeback.

I can't share any details because, well, NDAs and all that, but it had a hell of a lot of potential to be something amazing.

I tried to go last year but I was a few hundred people away from securing my ticket.

This year I'm torn. I doubt there will be anything good announced but I kind of want to be there just because it's the 10th Anniversary.

I could see it being shown in a teaser like fashion showing its real name with maybe info on what genre it will be etc otherwise i doubt it.

I expect they have a lot more planned than we realize this year since they said they wouldn't do one if they never had enough to show.

Oma, I know you're a mostly trollish prick, but please; do fuck off.

You were an intern, it's nothing special. I was a GM, it's also nothing special. But we were privy to certain things the Devs were upto, and even though the NDA stuff has probably expired for me at this point, I respect them as a company so won't go into any details.

Oh my god. Hammer, you could've literally pretended to be like ANY OTHER position at Blizzard and I'd have believed you. Coder, artist, licensing, whatever. But a GM? It is literally impossible that any company would put someone like you in a customer-facing position.

On the othe hand, I was an intern at CDev. I was actually privy to a very large amount of information on Titan. It's not like they made me cover my ears whenever they talked about it.
