The lights are on
[Update] Blizzard has announced ticket prices and sales information for the upcoming convention.
According to a press release sent out today, BlizzCon 2013 tickets will go on sale for $175 each at the convention's official website. Ticket sales will begin on Wednesday, April 24 at 7 p.m. Pacific time. A second batch of tickets will be released for sale on Saturday, April 27 at 10 a.m. Pacific time. In addition, Blizzard will be selling tickets to a special BlizzCon Benefit Dinner (which occurs the evening of November 8) on Wednesday, May 8 at 7 p.m. Pacific time. This dinner will give ticket-holders the chance to hang out with the Blizzard staff. All proceeds raised from ticket sales to the dinner will go to the Children's Hospital of Orange County.
Blizzard put its annual convention on ice last year to focus on game development, but it’s back in 2013. This year BlizzCon takes place in Anaheim, California November 8 and 9.
Attendees can look forward to StarCraft, Diablo, and Warcraft eSports competitions along with a chance to check out the companies’ latest offerings. Hopefully Blizzard will announce some new titles to look forward to in the coming years. Perhaps the confirmed MMO successor to World of Warcraft?
Ticket details will be available in the near future.
