    WoW and Diablo are the "major" pieces that are expecting an announcement, maybe OW as well (probably like another map or character, esports something or other).

    There's still plenty of opportunities in there.

    Now... whether it will be underwhelming or not remains to be seen...
    if they are announcing D4 this blizzcon, its going to be the biggest announcement of the event, and the first panel will 100% be D4, pretty sure they didnt lable them that way because if "Diablo whats next" is the first panel, it basicaly confirms D4

    the 2nd one could be overwatch 2 since there are rumors that it will be announced at blizzcon

    I will say this, I do find that if I keep my expectations low... or VERY low... I tend to be pleasantly surprised in the end.

    So, to the people poo-pooing* this thread topic, consider that before hyping your expectations beyond a reasonable level. ^_^

    *I just wanted to write the words "Poo-Poo" ;P

    Does people seriously think Wow will be underwhelming or dead when:

    Voices of Azeroth: A Hero’s Journey
    World of Warcraft Update
    Designers at Work: World of Warcraft World Creation
    World of Warcraft: Q&A
    Artists at Work: World of Warcraft
    World of Warcraft: Developers' Tales


    All the "coming soon"'s are Wow Expension announcement, Diablo 4 announcement, Overwatch 2.

    The wow expension will be like normal expensions, but atleast more creative and fulfilling than BfA.

    This Blizzcon is mostly for Diablo 4 and Overwatch 2, I think though.

    The announcements are always in the opening ceremony

    Yeah, D4 would go well front and center, with the only overlap/conflict being a "25 years of audio" thing lol.
    For OW, that would be kind of interesting to announce OW2 given that it's like 3 years old now, I think?
    I'm not the biggest fan of it, so I didn't know that was even in the cards, but the possibility does pump up the event some more.

    Overall, that would make this a pretty large Blizzcon, with D4, OW2 and a WoW xpac (assuming all 3 happen).
    But, what better place than their own con, right?

    Let's just say they announce Diablo 4. It makes sense that they would leave out the first few panels and not say what they are about. Even if it just says Diablo What's next, for like the first 4 panels of the first day, people will be able to put one and one together.

    And most likely if there is a Diablo 4 announcement it makes sense to have it take centerstage.

    If one of the "Coming soon" panels was a WoW panel on the first day, I'm sure they'd just reveal it to be a WoW What's next panel and not make a secret out of it, since everyone is expecting an expansion announcement anyway.

    Also the first panel has another WoW panel running in parallel to the first panel, on a different stage. If the first panel was a WoW panel, I don't think they'd put another WoW panel right at the beginning to run at the same time, because who is gonna watch that after an expansion announcement. If the first panel is Diablo 4 however, people who don't play Diablo can watch the WoW panel.

    So the fact that there is no WoW What's next panel on the first day makes me fear whatever they announce for WoW will be sort of underwhelming, otherwise we'd get a panel on the first day. It might not even be an expansion announcement.
    That would be the best thing possible.

    No more WoW, they move on to make new and better games.

    Nothing short of a sequel, an updated combat system completely void of any tab targeting or player owned ships could get me excited for the next expansion, neither of which seem to be on the horizon so yes, Blizzcon is going to be disappointing.
