BlizzCon 2019 schedule revealed - Diablo 4 and Overwatch 2 among 6 rumoured game reveals

BlizzCon 2019 is shaping up to one heck of an event. I’m probably not alone in saying I haven’t looked forward to a BlizzCon this much since, well, forever. Who knew the games would end up becoming secondary entertainment at a gaming conference? 

Taking place over the weekend of November 1-2, BlizzCon 2019 is expected to play host to a flurry of Blizzard game reveals, although this could all be overshadowed by the looming storm-cloud which are the protests against Blizzard’s high-profile banning of Hearthstone player ‘blitzchung’. The ban stemmed from Blitzchung’s Hong Kong pro-democracy protest during a Hearthstone eSports tournament livestream and has been viewed by fans as cowing to the Chinese government for fear of retribution.

Because of the vociferous mood surrounding Blizzard right now, BlizzCon 2019 arguably needs to be bigger and better than ever before in order to paper over the gaping cracks.

Concerning Blizzard’s current roster of games, BlizzCon 2019 will play host to a World of Warcraft tournament, a Hearthstone tournament, StarCraft II eSports, and the Overwatch World Cup. 

In terms of new game announcements, there are no fewer than six glaring holes on the main Mythic Stage. The Opening Ceremony will kick things off on November 1st and then, from 7:30pm onwards, there is a major on-stage announcement taking place every hour for four hours. All of these slots in the BlizzCon schedule simply say “Coming Soon!” There are then a further two 'Coming Soon' slots on Saturday, November 2nd.

You can see the full schedule for yourself here

We know that Diablo 4 will almost assuredly be one of these slots. Diablo Immortal could potentially be another as well. With Diablo 4 revealed it would take the sting out of a second showcase for the mobile spin-off.

There are also rumours of a Diablo 2 Remaster, as well as the potential for Overwatch 2. We could well see Warcraft 3: Reforged onstage as well, although this isn’t a game which needs to be shrouded in secrecy at this point.

Whatever ends up getting announced, Blizzard faces an uphill battle. In our recent poll, more than half of you said you’re boycotting Blizzard and just 20% said you’re committed to buying Diablo 4.

What are your big hopes for reveals at BlizzCon 2019? Is there anything crazy you’d like to see Blizzard develop next?

Every game is bro.
In shooters you grind kills and objectives and different stuff, doing the same thing over and over again, and in some of them levels, unlocks and such, competitive ranks too.
In Racers you grind for money, you grind for time, you grind races you grind cars.
TBH Just name a game and/or genre and I can tell you exactly what you grind.


Grinding is good as long as the core gameplay is good, simple as that. And grinding has longevity as long as the content is varied and good(and you get new content too).

I think what you mean is the grind doesn't feel tedious if the game is fun, which I agree with. Which is why I said if the core gameplay is good, the grind is good and to make the grind be good for long periods of time you need good content and lots of content and new content periodically.

Love Dark Souls.. Love Diablo.. But no.


Diablo 4 needs to trace back to the roots of what made the game fun to begin with. Maybe as a side project, some sort of Diablo/Dark Souls RPG style game, but not as a main game. I get the appeal, I'd play it. But Diablo 4 needs to be far more similar to D2/LoD.

IMO it would be cool if we got a different genre diablo. I personally don't want another Diablo 2 or Diablo 1. Fantastic games, but I don't feel like playing the same game I've played for over 16 years across multiple other games in the same genre and diablo itself.


I want Diablo 4 to be innovative be it have new fresh additions to the gameplay or change the genres and in general have more interesting gameplay than it's prequels/predecessors. After Diablo 3 and Divinity basically nothing more can come out of that formula.


I have grown tired of the current type of Action-cRPGs' gameplay and mechanics and want a massive improvement and additions or just change the genre.

Massive improvements are certainly welcome, and I certainly disagree that nothing more can come out of the formula. There's always room to improve things, in any genre. Diablo certainly needs a more "modern" feel than a simple point and click hack'n'slash, but I don't want it to jump so drastically to a Dark Souls style game. Too different to me. Especially because Dark Souls "coop" is not good, and I like Diablo with others.

Dark Souls is great. I love the game. I like the challenge. I like the gameplay personally. And I think it would fit a Diablo project, but like I said, I don't want it as a main series game. I'd play a game like that, and if that's what Diablo 4 is, I'd buy it, but it would have to be a lot more than a Dark Souls rip off. It would have to be less Dark Souls, and a lot more Diablo.

I mean I liked Diablo 3 for the most part (after a series of updates and expansions), but still find myself going back to Diablo 2 over it. So I mean.. I'll welcome a genre change, as long as it still feels like Diablo. If it's too different, I'll just go back to LoD until they close those servers.

Yeah Diablo 2 is the best for sure, but that being said. I do NOT want another diablo 2, nor do I want another diablo 3, I've had enough of those games on their all, let alone all the "clones"...


I want it to be absolutely different from the previous games, hell I want it to reinvent the wheel in a unique, more complex and innovative way.
To me if Diablo 4 is like Diablo 2, but better, it will still be worse, because it's like Diablo 2.

I guess it's different for me because I never played a Diablo clone, or atleast very few.. Never played Torchlight or Grim Dawn or Victor Vran, which I consider direct Diablo clones. I've played Titan Quest, which I actually enjoyed.


I get your point, and I definitely don't disagree. But if it changes too much, even if you slap the name Diablo on it, it's not the same. Kinda like RE after RE4... You slap RE and have some characters, the whole action oriented stuff sucked.

Agreed. Exactly why I don't want it to be the same as the previous games and if they can innovate within the genre they can switch it, I mean it's not really confirmed that it's diablo 4, right? It could be a spin off, but I doubt it since 7 years have passed chances are it's a main game.

Yeah so does Final Fantasy XV. Why? Because they actually have players and it costs them a ton to maintain the servers, do frequent, quality and quantity patches every 77 days like a clock with hundreds of hours of content to play, be active within each server. Blizzard said that thanks to micro-transactions WoW can exist the way it is with it's frequent content patches with only 1 million users, whereas back in the Cataclysm and MoP days they'd need tons of players, which is why we got such heavy content draughts in those expansions...


And on top of that when I pay once for the subscription, if I don't stop playing, I can pay my subscribtion with gold and I'm NOT grinding for gold, just getting gold from raids, dungeons, world bosses, assaults, world quests and so on... No Grind

They basically make you pay once for their subscription if you plan to play 2-3 hours a day on average, the game just rewards you with tons of gold from regular content.


I would have prefered a more expensive subscription to micro-transactions though, but technically it's a win for me as I never buy micro-transactions and the subscription is the same XD


Also people love and loved the Auction house in WoW, which is why they tired it in Diablo, but I think it had real life money in it which is why it's hated and failed. WoW is pure game economy.


Though Blizzard is dead now, so yeah... Activision has taken over.

Monthly subs are fine if the value's there? For a lot of MMOs it wasn't, hence they died, but WoW and FFXIV offer a great stream of regular content (or you can choose to wait between expansions and just play them for a month or two then to see a bunch of the core content)

I agree on the last part, the only reason I hate WoW, like hate hate, not dislike or have constructive criticism, the only reason I hate WoW is that there is no Warcraft 4.
And I compared it to starcraft in terms of having multiple expansions or like Warcraft 2, WC3 had only one, which is why I didn't compare a potential WC4 to WC3.


Also modern MMOs need no more than 2-3 hours a day, I have had only one short period when I played MMOs for prolongued time 9 years ago in Cataclysm. With how little time the require in comparisson to before, I can play on again and off again.

Also I find it funny that people say MMOs are grindy, but fail to realize that each and every single game is grindy and life as a whole is a big grandeous grind. I'd say on average(no research or anything) people love grinding, but don't realize it as it's the mindset they go towards each activity that makes you think of it as grindy or not.


Literally every activity is grindy. You obviously don't enjoy your work, you might not hate it, but if you don't want more of it, that means you don't love it, but in terms of actions and activity(yes the human factor and stress factor are what makes a job bad and a bad job terrible) no different than riding a bike, or playing an MMO, or anything really, very few things aren't grindy, but I can't think of one myself right now.

And you feel like MMOs are grindy for the same reason people feel like SoulsBorne games are hard, it's because of the stereotype of those games and you go in those games with that mindset of their stereotype and are stuck thinking exactly about that, which is really a poor way to judge those games or any other activity with a negative or annoying stereotype attached to it.

The point of good game design is to make those menial grindy tasks fun, and I just don't have any fun playing MMOs. I don't criticize anyone who enjoys them, it's just not for me. I don't get why you're so defensive about it.

I played a fair bunch and came to my conclusion. There's no stereotype attached to it, apart from it being true in this case, for me. You're not missing out on something you tried and didn't like.

And about my job, I don't know where did you get that from. I love my job, but I also like a break from it to as It's a very taxing job. And I don't need a second job in terms of an MMO which I actually wouldn't like.

My point was that grinding isn't bad.
Also the core gameplay keeps you at first then there is the story, the other contents like dungeons, raids with all the bosses, tactics, gearing(as in chosing gear not just getting it), the social aspect.
Hating an MMO is like hating a singleplayer game, but instead of singleplayer it's joly co-op for the same content that would be tuned for a singleplayer


If for example WoW and especially modern WoW is grindy, then so is the Witcher, TES, Dragon Age and pretty much any other RPG really. WoW's story is great, nowadays there are cutscenes for later story(90-120) so that you don't have to read the quests to know the story and immerse yourself(basically casualized as the community puts it, but I think it's no better and no worse, just different).

And it's 2-3 hours if you want to do all the content. If you like just parts of it, you can do with an hour. If you want to only do dungeons and raids. You can do 2x dungeons in 10-15 minutes each and 1x raid wing in an hour and finish the raid by the end of the week as you can really do each boss once a week and chances are you won't do them all the first couple hundred tries when it's new content.


Or you can just do world quests and assaults.


Or just do a few pet battles.


Or do Island Expeditions and Warfronts


Or just mix and mash each content for one hour a day.


Or PVP


Nowadays there are tons of things to do in WoW, too many if you ask me, but they all takes less time combined than the couple things you could do back in the day.

Now if you don't find the gameplay MMOs fun I'd say it's absolutely normal, I have no idea why MMOs are as popular as they are. I mean I think they are great, but I've always thought that they aren't as appealing to the general gamer. Not to say that they should be played by 3 guys and their cat, but still, way too popular imo. Same with RPGs as a whole really. But it seems my perception of them is wrong as RPGs are one of the most successful genres. Maybe I view them that way because if other genres use RPG game design(not just RPG-like game design and elements that matter very little to the overall gameplay and game) they are considered either bad or an RPG which suddenly makes it fine? Too much rambling...

Or I can do none at all as I don't enjoy the genre. I don't like MMOs in the similar vein you dislike MOBAs, apart from the fact that I have no issues with them existing.

I love WC lore, but I don't want to go through hours of boredom to reach a few minutes of cutscenes. If disliking MMOs is like disliking SP games, then explain to me how do I enjoy playing one and disliking the other?

I love the Witcher, I love Dragon Age and I enjoyed every TES game I've played. And yet I still dislike MMOs. I don't think there's much more to say on this subject. I don't know why you're still at it.

It's not like there are no other choices apart from MMOs so disliking them and gaming don't go together. I have plenty of fun with other games and other genres, I don't feel the need to play what I don't like.

Well the main difference between an MMO and a singleplayer game is that there are many players in an MMO. For example TES Online, in my limited time playing it is similar to Skyrim but there are many players with you and it's more complex and has more systems and so on. But in general the gameplay and the questlines are like skyrim, but better tbh, which is to be expected from a newer game and are all solo-able and there is great solo content to get gear if you need to so you are not underpowered compared to the guys doing co-op content. Basically Skyrim with people and some co-op content and better questlines and slightly better gameplay.

Now there is no singleplayer alternative to WoW for example, I can't think of one singleplayer game with the gameplay of WoW so there I can understand how a comparison can't be made. FF XIV again has WoW-like gameplay, so no singleplayer game has gameplay like it, but TES:Online is the perfect example of a singleplayer game that is also an MMO.


And IDK why I keep talking about it, just sharing thoughts really. As I said, I understand when people don't like MMOs and I expect very few to do.
