World of Warcraft developer Blizzard Entertainment confirmed Thursday that its annual BlizzCon gathering will be held October 22-23, 2010 at the Anaheim Convention Center in California. At the BlizzCon events, Blizzard gives its fans limited access to the studio's developers, who hold discussion panels, and hands-on time with upcoming Blizzard products. BlizzCon 2010 will again host tournaments and other fan-focused activities. The previous BlizzCon, held in August 2009, unveiled the World of Warcraft expansion Cataclysm, which is still in development. Developers also revealed more details about StarCraft II and the networking service Battle.net. The first BlizzCon was in 2005 and has been held annually at the Anaheim Convention Center ever since. "BlizzCon offers us a great opportunity to meet with our players and share our enthusiasm for gaming with one of the most passionate communities in the world," said Mike Morhaime, CEO and co-founder of Blizzard. "We're looking forward to providing another great show filled with entertainment, competition, and the latest information about Blizzard Entertainment games." More details about ticket pricing for BlizzCon 2010 are to be announced. A statement from Blizzard said BlizzCon 2009 sold out "in minutes."
