There are many things happening within Activision Blizzard at this time, so as expected, they announced that the online Blizzcon 2022 has been officially canceled. Unlike the cancellation of the 2021 edition, this time the pandemic was not responsible, but the company prefers to focus on solving all the current problems that are experienced within the study.
Through a new statement published today on the website of Blizzard, the company said that assembling a massive event as Blizzcon took the time and energy of all within the study, and in agreement With Blizzard, that time and energy will be focused on supporting our teams and progressing in the development of our games and experiences.
Likewise, this statement also mentions that the company will be taking this time as an opportunity to reinvent the format of the BlizzCon for the future:
The first Blizzcon was held 16 years ago, and many things have changed since then-more highly, the different ways in which players and communities meet and feel that they are part of something greater. We do not know how this event is going to see in the future, but we must make sure it is a safe, cozy and inclusive space.
Blizzard concluded this release by reiterating the fans that the company will continue to announce games and updates, only that they will not do so in this convention format.
Editor s note: After all that is happening within Activision Blizzard, it was to be expected to BlizzCon 2022 was not one of your priorities. The company promised that this format will be reinventing for the future, but they should first reinvent their work environment.
