BlizzCon 2023 November 3-4

NOVEMBER 3-4, 2023

After four years of gathering online–adventuring through Azeroth, teaming up in Overwatch, traversing the fields of Sanctuary, or warming yourself by the fire in the Tavern–it’s finally time to gather in person once more. We are happy to announce that BlizzCon will be returning to the Anaheim Convention Center on November 3-4 (PT)!


Join RUIN at BlizzCon 2023!


BlizzCon® takes place at the Anaheim Convention Center: 800 W. Katella Avenue, Anaheim, CA 92802.


Blizzard® is committed to providing an outstanding experience for all attendees at BlizzCon®. We strive for access to all activities—to the fullest extent possible—based on awareness of attendees needs and appropriate planning.


Event Seating

Viewing areas and seating will be available throughout all halls so that everyone can watch the BlizzCon® Arena content. The BlizzCon Arena will have limited seating so please keep in mind that seating is not reserved and will be filled on a first-come, first-served basis. We appreciate your understanding and cooperation in making the event enjoyable for everyone.

BlizzCon Arena

Opening Ceremony

While the Opening Ceremony will be available to watch on screens in every hall, the ceremony itself will take place in its entirety in the BlizzCon® Arena. Due to limited seating, a random-draw system will be used to distribute tickets in advance for a seat to view the Opening Ceremony in the arena – all ticket holders are opted in as default, additional details to come.

Panel Seating & Community Night

All panels, as well as Community Night, will also take place in the BlizzCon Arena, and seating will be available on a first-come, first-served basis. Just like the Opening Ceremony, all panels and Community Night will be simulcast around BlizzCon, as well as live streamed for free to our virtual attendees.

BlizzCon 2023 Overview

After four years away, BlizzCon® is returning to Anaheim, California on November 3-4! We’re so excited to get everyone together again, celebrate our communities, and share what we’ve been working on.


This year, the goal is to make BlizzCon® feel more experiential than ever before. It will be a one-of-a-kind immersive experience, bringing attendees into the universes of Warcraft®, Diablo®, and Overwatch® with massive installations, art, and thematic spaces where friends can connect. Whether you’re kicking back in Azeroth, exploring the mysteries of a dark cathedral of Sanctuary, playing alongside the heroes of Overwatch®, or tuning in from home, we want you to feel you are entering universes alongside your friends as you celebrate and experience what we’re building next, and hear from developers all across Blizzard about their vision for our games, their craft, and more.

This is the first time we are building BlizzCon this way, and our vision is that building a giant playground for our communities will allow everyone to create memories, share stories, and celebrate what unites us.

The firstOverwatch World Cup champion of the Overwatch 2 era will be crowned this year, and it’s all going down in front of a live audience against the iconic backdrop of BlizzCon! The Top 8 teams will battle it out in single-elimination bracket finals live at BlizzCon. For more information about the OWWC, head to the Overwatch World Cup website.

As we prepare to welcome our community to BlizzCon® 2023 on November 3-4, we’re thrilled to share that a third wave of ticket sales will take place on Friday, September 29 at 12pm PDT. Here’s a first glimpse into some of the events and programming you can expect in person.

If you can’t make it to the show in person, fear not! BlizzCon 2023 will be live-streaming all content in the Main Stage for free on and, November 3-4 PDT. The show will be presented in English, with subtitled versions available in Spanish, French, German, Mandarin, and Korean.
