If you were one of the unlucky ones that did not get a BlizzCon ticket in the first two rounds of pre-sales in April, you are in luck. Blizzard is adding a third round of ticket sales coming early next month for BlizzCon 2017.
Tickets will go on sale on July 5 at 7 p.m. PT / 10 p.m. ET. Yes, that means if you are on the east coast, you may need to stay up late to get one. The yearly two-day show is expanding into yet another hall at the Anaheim Convention Center, which means they need more people to crowd the place up. The rules of the first two tickets sales will apply here as well.
If you won't be able to attend for any reason, Blizzard is still planning on offering its Virtual Ticket again this year, with all the perks that attendees get without the hassle of the crowds. You'll get the special gifts and be able to see livestreams of the panels and competitions from the comfort of your living room or office desk chair. If prices hold true to last year, you should be able to get one for around $40.
BlizzCon runs November 3-4 this year, with Blizzard's six franchises likely on display. News and panels are expected on Overwatch, World of Warcraft, the StarCraft series, Hearthstone, Heroes of the Storm and the Diablo franchise. There is even a possibility that Destiny 2 could be at the show, since Bungie's anticipated sequel will have released by then as an exclusive sale through the Blizzard store and will be part of the Blizzard Launcher.
