According to Mike Ybarra, head of Blizzard, the traditional BlizzCon should return in 2023. The company recently hired a new executive who is already looking into this issue.
The traditional BlizzCon has not been held since 2019. In 2021, an online event format called BlizzConline appeared, but this year they decided not to hold it.
In addition, Ybarra supported the controversial microtransactions in Diablo Immortal, noting that they made the game more accessible.
