What you need to know

  • BlizzCon tickets officially go on sale in July in two waves, on July 8 and July 22.
  • This is the first in-person full-scale BlizzCon since 2019 and brings together fans of World of Warcraft, Diablo and Overwatch amongst other games.
  • The convention will feature immersive installations, live-streaming of all on-stage content for people at home, in-game goodies and more.

Following a four-year hiatus, BlizzCon returns to Anaheim California on November 3-4 to celebrate the games and their communities, and today they've announced both the dates of ticket sales and the price so you can be ready for those online queues. Here's everything we know so far about BlizzCon and how to get tickets.

Tickets for Blizzcon go on sale for the first wave on July 8th at 1 p.m. EDT / 10 a.m PDT, with a second wave going live on July 22 at 1 p.m. EDT / 10 a.m. PDT.

Sales are limited to two per person and will cost $299 for general admission. For this, you will get:

  • Live event ticket
  • In-game goodies
  • Official Blizzcon Backpack
  • Early access to the BlizzCon store

For those who want to splash out a little more on this special event, you can spend $799 for the Portal Pass, which includes all of the above items but in addition:

  • Seperate registration and security line
  • Exclusive Portal Pass Lounge access
  • Private concessions, viewing lounge and gameplay experiences
  • Concierge support
  • Early entry to the Convention Centre 

There's been no news yet of an online ticket, but given there has been one in previous years we're sure the announcement and pricing for this is also imminent. You can of course watch the show for free, but there is usually a premium digital option with some perks and digital goodies.

This will be the first in-person BlizzCon in four years, with BlizzCon 2020 falling victim to the pandemic, and an online-only event held in 2021. It’s a huge event in the calendar for Blizzard game fans, whether they are able to attend or not, given the biggest announcements for popular franchises like Overwatch, World of Warcraft and Diablo are saved for the show. Diablo 4 was announced in 2019 to much relief from fans after the Diablo Immortal scandal, and we look forward to seeing what BlizzCon 2023 has to offer.

The official announcement from Blizzard indicates they are trying something completely new this year in the delivery of this event "It will be a one-of-a-kind immersive experience, bringing attendees into the universes of Warcraft, Diablo, and Overwatch with massive installations, art, and thematic spaces where friends can connect."

Windows Central's Take

As a bonafide Diablo fan, Blizzard is a pinnacle event in the calendar for me. Though I'll not be attending, I wait with bated breath for the announcement of the digital-only tickets, for which I'm a total sucker. They will tempt us in with some exclusive in-game cosmetics and quite frankly I am here for it, and anticipate some updates on my favorite game given that Diablo 4 has experienced such success this year.

Not only that but this news comes as a welcome distraction from all the FTC courtroom action currently as the regulator attempts to block the Microsoft acquisition of Activision Blizzard, and right now the saga feels neverending.

Watch this space for news on digital tickets, and what will be included.
