Blizzcon pushed to 2013.

Blizzard Entertainment is proud to announce the 2012 Battle.net World Championship, a major global eSports event featuring some of the best pro-gaming competition in the world. Slated to take place in Asia toward the end of 2012, the Battle.net World Championship will host this year’s StarCraft II and World of Warcraft Arena World Championship tournaments. Blizzard gamers and eSports fans from around the world will be invited to attend and witness some of the most skilled pro players on the planet battle it out for cash and glory.

We’re excited to be showcasing Blizzard eSports on a truly global stage this year. We're also heavily focused on getting Diablo III, Mists of Pandaria, and Heart of the Swarm into players’ hands as soon as possible. In light of our jam-packed schedule, we’ve decided to hold the next BlizzCon in 2013.

More details about the 2012 Battle.net World Championship and BlizzCon 2013, including specific dates and locations, will be coming in the months ahead.


So, that's that. Either their schedule got too tight or they got too lazy to put on some effort.

Oh, well, I doubt that, even with their show cancelled, they'll work hard on their stuff. HA!

Clearly there's nothing to announce this year. Next year: D3 expansion. :3

I read yesterday that blizzard is looking to hire a new developement lead for WoW. They are doing pretty bad at the moment, they've lost a couple Terrainers for SC2 and D3 and lost a few artists.

They had terrainers? I'm surprised they have any actual staffing besides pr/marketing and a huge mess of disposable interns.

Go figure I miss BlizzCon 2011 because I was in Japan, and now that I'm finally back in the US they're hosting a tournament in Asia and pushing BlizzCon back for two years. D<

They have a massive cinematics and art department but they're probably working on Heart of the Swarm. Is Diablo 3's art inhouse or was it farmed out?

Their art department is no doubt where most of the interns go to die.
