Last year’s BlizzCon was attended by over 25,000 people. The online broadcast was watched by over 10 million people. Blizzard once again sold a Virtual Ticket for live online streaming of all of the events in BlizzCon 2015. In addition, Virtual Ticket buyers had the option to purchase the merchandise bag that is given to BlizzCon attendees. Last year’s BlizzCon saw the announcement of Overwatch. So, we can expect a similar revelation for this year’s BlizzCon 2016. Most likely Diablo 4 or an expansion of Diablo 3.
