Saralyn Smith, Executive Producer of BlizzCon, made the announcement after noting internal investigation on whether or not a convention could go ahead,

“We’ve also talked about different paths we could take, and how each one could be complicated by fluctuations in national and local health guidelines in the months ahead. Ultimately, after considering our options, we’ve come to the very difficult decision to not have BlizzCon this year.”
