BlizzConline 2022 cancellata, Blizzard ripenserà la fiera

Scritto da Diego "Feriand" Pagano - 27 Ottobre 2021 alle 14:30

Blizzard ha rilasciato un blogpost di aggiornamento che riguarda la sua convention, annunciando non solo la cancellazione della prossima BlizzConline (originariamente prevista per inizio 2022) ma anche l’inizio di un processo interno che porterà a rivedere la fiera in toto. Gli annunci sono stati comunque garantiti.

Non è stato dichiarato espressamente, ma è facile immaginare che la causa primaria di questa decisione sia stata la polemica scaturita dalla causa dello Stato della California. Al momento il processo legale è ancora in atto, ma per noi giocatori ci sono già stati diversi cambiamenti come il cambio di nome di McCree.

Anche la scelta di ripensare la fiera daccapo non stupisce troppo, dato che è da lì che viene uno dei video che è diventato il simbolo della “cultura da confraternita” che è stata scoperchiata negli ultimi mesi.

To the Blizzard community,

We’ve decided to take a step back and pause on planning the previously announced BlizzConline event scheduled for early next year. This was a tough decision for all of us to make, but it’s the right one.

Any BlizzCon event takes every single one of us to make happen, an entire-company effort, fueled by our desire to share what we create with the community we care about so much. At this time, we feel the energy it would take to put on a show like this is best directed towards supporting our teams and progressing development of our games and experiences. 

Additionally, we would also like to take the time to reimagine what a BlizzCon event of the future could look like. The first BlizzCon was held 16 years ago, and so much has changed in the time since—most notably, the multiple ways in which players and communities can come together and feel like they are a part of something bigger. Whatever the event looks like in the future, we also need to ensure that it feels as safe, welcoming, and inclusive as possible. We’re committed to continual communication with our players, and we see BlizzCon playing a big role in that going forward. We’re excited about what we’ll do with the event when we revisit it in the future. 

One more thing we wanted to make clear: even though we aren’t holding BlizzConline in February, we’ll still be making announcements and updates for our games. We’re proud of our teams and the progress they’ve made across our games. We have a lot of exciting upcoming news and releases to share with you. You’ll continue hearing about those through our franchise channels, with the talented people on the BlizzCon team playing a part in supporting these efforts. 

We’ll miss seeing you, but don’t worry. We’ll be back together soon.
