The only thing I can say for certain is that the next WoW expansion will be announced. I'm still not sure if they will have anything for us on titan yet. They could possibly talk about a Diablo expansion as well. As for the Protoss SC2 expansion, I'd say definitely too early to say anything about that yet.
Ok last question, do tickets go on sale in a few days or months?
Biggest Blizzcon to date.
Titan revealed. Diablo 3 expansion almost released. WoW expansion revealed.

I guess this year I should probably go to the Curse party though
All this complaining is simply further proof that Blizzard could send each and every player a real-life wish-granting flying unicorn carrying a solid gold plate of chocolate chip cookies wrapped in hundred dollar bills, and someone would whine that Blizzard sucks for not letting them choose oatmeal raisin.
I'd love to go to a Blizzcon sometime, but I may do the Live-Stream this year. Big conference events are always fun though, even if you aren't there. E3 is my favorite week every year, just to see all of the new stuff and all of the announcements.
SC2 will not be there (Other than progamers. HotS will be only have been released for half year).
It would announce new WoW xpac(timing is just right), plus either Titan or Allstars(could be both), and possibly D3 xpac as well.
Oh boy oh boy! Let the countdown begin! I may actually fly down there this year for it xD
Here are some reasons:
1. Morhaime said that after the SC2 expansion (launched early March), they'll concentrate to get BaS out. Blizzard is in DIRE need for a free to play DOTA kind of game with all the heroes of the Blizzard universe.
2. Diablo 3 needs a new expansion announced (and Morhaime confirmed the expansion already in Nov). Not only because D3 after its initial flak is rather going in the right direction and so needs an expansion, but also because Blizzard will launch it on consoles before Christmas. D3 on consoles with patches 1.03 to 1.07 included is dynamite in a world of consoles which simply lack a decent H&S.
3. WOW needs a new expansion announcement, since MoP will be 14-15 months old by then already. They clearly stated they will launch new WOW expansions shorter to each other, so that's a certainty already.
With ALL the 3 moves/announcements above, it is EXCLUDED that they will talk much about Titan, because the mere mentioning of its subject would put the other 3 projects right into oblivion in the NEWS media.
4. Rob Pardo declared multiple times that they want to get rid of the old habit of announcing games TOO SOON. SC2 was postponed more than 6 months and Diablo 3 was postponed several times which clearly was not desirable.
So the earliest Blizzard will talk about Titan is when it will be playable in extensive Alfa/closed Beta form.
Titan will only be announced the moment the 3 above projects will be as good as launched. That's late 2014 at the earliest, with Titan probably launching 2015 or even 2016.
It will depend of how much power WOW still has left in its 10 year old legs AND how the crowd will react to the Warcraft movie (it could have a huge impact or not). Depending on these factors, it is clear that getting into Titan BETA will require a new Annual Subscription for WOW to make the transition, after which a multiple sub based system could be announced to have free access over ALL Blizzard games.
So Titan will not be much talked about in the upcoming Blizzcon. It is not in the priority list for Blizzard in 2014
