    [SPECULATION] Blizzard PAX East Leaks

    So Blizzard is going to PAX. What can we expect from them?

    Here is what has been confirmed through various sources:

    - Classic release date announcement, Classic demo from BlizzCon playable on game floor
    - 8.2 Mechagon and Nazjatar zone reveal and PTR playable on game floor
    - Announcement that they decided to port Diablo: Immortal to PC
    - Warcraft 3: Reforged map reveals with demo announcement
    - No Overwatch, HotS or Starcraft floor presence outside of logos/devs/panel

    Also, Thursday is gonna be huge for Diablo fans.

    That is all I can say for now.

    Bookmark this page and come back in one week. You'll see I was correct. <3

    The only thing that sounds plausible is the classic release date announcement. The rest makes absolutely no sense.

    I can say this is 95% correct based on the info.

    The only things that may change are minor details.

    Oh I 100% agree.

    But this port announcement is just a drop in the bucket compared to what happens this coming Thursday for Diablo fans. Keep your eyes peeled.

    I can see the Diablo PC port being a thing since they definitely didn't expect that much of a backlash (which is really naive if past mobile announcements are anything to go by, just look at Command an Conquer only a few months earlier). I still wouldn't play it because it's still going to be full of microtransactions (and especially since it's NetEase), but I wouldn't put it past them as some form of appeasement.

    Besides the diablo immortal port all of these things are to be expected even without insider info...

    I thought that as well at first, but then I thought more in line of the quote below.

    Absolutely.

    PAX East is kinda small for Blizzard, but the Immortal port is pretty big as well as the Classic release date. And the "secret" for Diablo fans that is coming on Thursday.

    Um, the rest is kind of useless information, why would we need to know when the 8.2 PTR comes? It's a PTR, not when the actual patch comes. WC3 map reveals? Seems like pointless information again.

    Pretty much, Diablo fans want a Diablo game, not a chinese rip off Diablo that was reskinned with Diablo skins.

    Oh just say it’s a Diablo 4 announcement. We know they’re working on it.

    From what I know, and I have little to go on at this point, the 8.2 PTR will be going up during PAX after they show off the 2 new zones, Mechagon and Nazjatar.

    You claim to have priveledge information, yet you still have this bait tactic with a special diablo "secret".
    Nobody is going to suck you off so you might as well just spit out the misinformation

    I don't see the diablo port as very plausible. For one, games designed for phone tend to have a lot of limitations that PC doesn't, leading to a game that would feel very sub-par to the pc experience, and it would also be "admitting defeat" which is something that blizzard doesn't have a good track record with lately.

    Sure, they might throw stuff like that in with some other major info, but your list makes it sound like those would be the major announcements.

    AT BlizzCon, despite the Immortal devs saying there is no plan for it on PC, there were laptops running Immortal in the dev area behind the Diablo area in the back hall.

    I'd argue that for those few that still play BfA, it would be major to them. Hence why I made it separate.

    A PTR announcement is nothing major because it doesn't actually say much at all. Either way your list is not accurate considering there's "The State of Overwatch and Overwatch League in 2019" in the schedule, which makes your last point false and probably most of the rest as well.
