No 2012 Blizzcon

No 2012 Blizzcon - MMORPG.com

Citing a "jam packed schedule", Blizzard will not be hosting its (usually) annual fan convention, Blizzcon. The convention is the usual host for competitive online tournaments for StarCraft II and Warcraft. In light of the Blizzcon cancellation, these tournaments will be held in late 2012.

We’re excited to be showcasing Blizzard eSports on a truly global stage this year. We're also heavily focused on getting Diablo III, Mists of Pandaria, and Heart of the Swarm into players’ hands as soon as possible. In light of our jam-packed schedule, we’ve decided to hold the next BlizzCon in 2013.

Read more on the Blizzcon blog.

Guess this shoots Bill Murphy's prediction of a Titan announcement at Blizzcon 2012 in the foot. Perhaps we'll hear more at an alternative convention as has been done in the past.
