    GET TICKETS

    This third ticket sale will once again be hosted by Universe.com, and tickets are priced at $199 each (plus applicable taxes and fees). This sale will work just like our previous two—check out the BlizzCon Ticket page and Badge Information page for all the details.

    Blizzard Entertainment’s two-day gaming convention and community celebration returns to the Anaheim Convention Center on November 2 and 3 for a weekend full of hands-on gaming, in-depth developer panels, incredible esports competition, and more.

    Virtual Ticket – Coming Soon!

    If you can’t make it to the show in person, you’ll still have a chance to join the celebration from home with the BlizzCon Virtual Ticket, which will provide live streaming coverage to viewers around the world. Stay tuned for more details.

    Check out the BlizzCon Event Info page for lots more information on prepping for the show and the upcoming ticket sales.

    And look for more information on the events and activities at BlizzCon as the show approaches. We’ll see you in November!

    Right after Diablo news? What a coincidence! ;D

    But seriously, looks like Diablo may be flagship for this Blizzcon. In this case lack of Diablo 4 would be a huge disappointment.

    Think this means more tickets total sold this year vs last (and even bigger crowd) or that they sold fewer than they expected in first two sales?

    Probably more tickets available, considering most people never even make it to the queue before tickets sell out.

    The first two sold out quickly. So they may have decided to add more tickets, perhaps by adding more space to the Con.

    Nice. You mean we all get to see tens of thousands of tickets "sell out" in under 2 seconds AGAIN?!

    I'm excited.

    Are you excited?

    I'm excited.

    I really hope that for virtual ticket owners there will be some cooler stuff again than just the "normal" stuff like a pet/mount for wow or a cardback for hearthstone.

    A complete mog-set would be nice for wow and another special card with crazy stuff like ETC for hearthstone.

    What would you like?

    I wish Blizzard would take its tour outside US so other countries can also profit from their presence, WWI was an awesome show in 2008, yes, it costs a ton and logistics is a nightmare, but the fans around the world would love it. Not everyone can come to USA to participate in Blizzcon.

    I might attempt to buy tickets to next year's blizzcon. I'm making cosplay armor for the mountain of game of thrones for Halloween this year, coming out pretty good so far (the armor he uses to fight Oberyn in). I might make something wow related next year so I can wear it. Thinking about a paladin and 3d printing crystals to put lights into to make a dull glow and maybe even use wire lighting to accent the armor edges...so many nerdy possibilities!

    Why on earth did they not announce there would be a third round of official sales BEFORE the July 13th cut-off for ticket name changes?

    This will be the fifth year in a row that my partner and I attend BlizzCon. Unfortunately, this year I had to resort to buying tickets from scalpers at well over face value because we couldn't get tickets in either round 1 or round 2.

    Really poor planning on Blizzards part. Scalpers win, yet again.

    Ya i ended up getting 4 tickets for me and my friends but we had a 5th. We were not able to get 1 more ticket during the 2nd round. So we ended up paying a ticket scalper way too much. This happens way too often..
