Blizzard Outlines Gamescom Plans

by Matt Bertz on Aug 19, 2018 at 09:22 AM

Blizzard apparently has some big plans for Gamescom 2018, going as far to release an iOS and Android app for the occasion. The lineup includes dedicated presentations for Overwatch, World of Warcraft (which recently released the Battle for Azeroth expansion), StarCraft, Heroes of the Storm, and Diablo. 

Here's the planned schedule for Wednesday, August 22 presentations on the main Gamescom stage:

  • Opening Ceremony | 10:30 a.m.

  • Overwatch | 11:15 a.m.

  • World of Warcraft | 12:30 p.m.

  • StarCraft | 1:15 p.m.

  • Heroes of the Storm 2:30 p.m.

  • Diablo | 3:45 p.m.

  • Special Guest | 5:00 p.m.

All times are listed Central European Time.

Blizzard has not indicated what it plans to discuss during these events, but has used the stage in previous years to unveil things like the Junkertown map in Overwatch. The publisher also has full days planned for Thursday and Friday, including cosplay showcases, dance contests, and a live viewing of Blizzard artist Chris Amaral drawing some Diablo artwork.  Blizzard will likely stream the biggest events on its Twitch channel, as it has done in past years.
