BlizzCon is moving to larger venue, so more tickets will go on sale

Blizzard announced Wednesday that BlizzCon, the two-day gaming convention in November, has moved into a larger venue, and more tickets will be available for purchase.

BlizzCon will move to a brand new hall in the Anaheim Convention Center, and that means another round of ticket sales will take place after the first two sold out. The next batch of tickets goes on sale at 10 p.m. ET July 5 for $199.

BlizzCon is a convention hosted by the game developer Blizzard, with developer panels of Blizzard games such as StarCraft, Warcraft, Overwatch, and more. BlizzCon is also the home of various esports competition of those games, including the StarCraft 2 Global Finals, the Hearthstone World Championship, the Heroes of the Storm Fall Championship, and the Overwatch World Cup in 2016.

The event takes place Nov. 3-4, and for those unable to be present in for the event physically, virtual tickets will be available for purchase soon, with purchasers able to get a live stream of the event. The first two rounds ticket sales sold out within 24 hours, and the third round will most likely disappear at a similar pace.

The first BlizzCon took place in 2005, and attendance rose from 8,000 to 25,000 by the 2015 edition.
