If you were hoping to attend BlizzCon 2017 but thought you missed out on tickets, there’s good news. According to Blizzard, the convention has expanded into a new hall in the Anaheim Convention center, meaning more tickets will now be available.
Starting at 7 p.m. PDT on Wednesday, July 5, tickets will once again be on sale. “This third ticket sale will once again be hosted by Universe.com, and tickets are priced at $199 each (plus applicable taxes and fees),” read a post from Blizzard. “This sale will work just like our previous two, but if you’d like more info, check out the BlizzCon Ticket page and Badge Information page for all the details.”
Blizzard also revealed a virtual ticket will be coming soon, for those fans who can’t make it to Anaheim. The BlizzCon virtual ticket will provide live streaming coverage of the event. More details about the virtual ticket will be made available soon.
As for why Blizzard can’t sell even more tickets to the event, the company said it must strike a balance between content and the number of attendees. “Having too many people packed into the convention center would detract from the experience of being able to mingle with newfound friends and catch all the panels and esports events that you’d like,” said Blizzard. “We’re excited that we’ll have access to a new hall, and we’re looking forward to making BlizzCon an unforgettable experience for everyone who attends.”
