BlizzCon 2017 Dates Revealed, Tickets Go on Sale Soon

Virtual tickets will be available again this year for those who can't attend and more details of the cost and when they will be available will be coming soon according to Blizzard.

On April 5, tickets go on sale at 7 p.m.

Blizzard has announced the dates for this year's BlizzCon, and the convention will return to California's Anaheim Convention Center from November 3 to 4, marking the 11th year for BlizzCon. In an official statement, Blizzard CEO Mike Morhaime said, "BlizzCon will be here again before we know it, and we're looking forward to catching up with the community, taking in the awesome eSports action, and showing everyone what we've been working on". The availability and price of these tickets is now unknown but Blizzard should reveal this at a later date.

Tickets are $199, limit four per household, and can be purchased through Universe. The second day will be Saturday, April 8, starting at 1 p.m. ET.

A ticket will include a badge for BlizzCon, a Virtual Ticket to watch the show digitally, and of course, the much-coveted BlizzCon Goody Bag.

Tickets will run $199 each, the same price as past year.

On the other hand, there will also be another Benefit Dinner to support the Children's Hospital of Orange County.

"Attendees will have a chance to talk games, swap stories, and share a drink or two with Blizzard developers and community representatives, and Blizzard will donate the net proceeds to the hospital", reads the announcement. Blizzard will release more details on the topic in the next few days.
