BlizzCon returns in 2023 for the first time since the Covid-19 pandemic and will once again be held at its traditional home in Anaheim, California, on November 3 and 4, 2023.

Blizzard has now announced that tickets for the convention will be available in two waves:

  • BlizzCon 2023 tickets – Wave #1: July 8, 2023
  • BlizzCon 2023 tickets – Wave #2: July 22, 2023

You’ll be able to buy the tickets via AXS. Both waves go live at 10am PT on their scheduled days. Here’s what that means for your time zone:

  • July 8 and 22, 10am PT
  • July 8 and 22, 12pm CT
  • July 8 and 22, 1pm ET
  • July 8 and 22, 6pm BST
  • July 8 and 22, 7pm CEST
  • July 8 and 22, 22:30pm IST
  • July 9 and 23, 1am CST
  • July 9 and 23, 2am KST/JST
  • July 9 and 23, 3am AEST
  • July 9 and 23, 5am NZST

BlizzCon 2023 tickets come in two different price categories:

  • General Admission – $299
  • Portal Pass – $799

Both versions offer a live event ticket, in-game goodies for various Blizzard games, an official BlizzCon backpack, and early access to the BlizzCon store. Those with a Portal Pass receive additional benefits in the form of a separate registration and security line, access to an exclusive lounge with more gameplay experiences and other services, as well as early entrance into the convention center to access this lounge.

As usual, fans will be able to follow the convention virtually as well, with panels, announcements, and other proceedings being streamed online.

“Gaming is about making connections with others, creating memories, and above all else, having fun – BlizzCon is our celebration of that,” said Mike Ybarra, President of Blizzard Entertainment in a press release. “Our players are at the heart of what makes BlizzCon great, and whether our players are attending in person or joining us virtually, we’re looking forward to showing them what’s next for Blizzard.”

This year’s focus seems to be on World of Warcraft, Diablo, Hearthstone, and Overwatch. It’s probably too early to hear something concrete about the survival game set in a brand-new IP Blizzard has in the works. StarCraft and Heroes of the Storm have not received any real attention in the promo art for the event, so fans of both titles shouldn’t be expecting much.
