Based on BlizzCon 2019’s current schedule, it looks like Blizzard is going to announce six new titles at the event. As every Blizzard IPs are currently stagnated, there would not be any shortage of demand. Another two reasons for this amount of titles is the recent scandal about Hong Kong, plus last year’s Diablo Immortal debacle. Faith in Blizzard is at an all-time low – they have to do something before the fans’ goodwill become rock bottom.

This article would list out some of the most likely candidates to be in the main stage of the next Blizzcon.

Warcraft 3 Reforged’s release date

This version would contain both the base game and the Frozen Throne expansion

Announced back then at 2018 BlizzCon, plus the recent leak of the final build, it is very likely that Warcraft 3 Reforged would be released very soon. BlizzCon 2019 would definitely be the stage for a release date plus beta reveal. The remastered version of the game has improved upon every aspect of the campaigns and assets, with every single texture upgraded based on World of Warcraft’s lore and standards.

You vs. the one she told you not to worry about

Diablo 4

Not sure what they are going to do in Diablo 4, with all the Prime Evils killed in the previous game

After the “phone Diablo” scandal last year looks like it is time for Blizzard to bring some actual games to the table. It is reported that this sequel would be about Lilith, a devil side character in the lore. This is probably Blizzard’s best chance to erase last years’ event from people’s memory. About the gameplay - as Diablo 3 is pretty much a failure in every aspect, it is best that Blizzard brings back the beloved mechanics from Diablo 2.

Overwatch 2

It is likely that this game would be another upgrade just like Fortnite Season 2

This game is rumored to be a rebrand like Fortnite Chapter 2, as currently Blizzard just cannot afford to separate the Overwatch fanbase any further. According to sources, Overwatch 2 would focus more on a PvE campaign with a new progression system – to justify the price that players have to pay to upgrade the base game to “Overwatch 2”.

Diablo 2 Remastered

It is very likely that the remake of Diablo 2 is in the works

Rumors about the return of this legendary game have been circulated around for quite a while, as a reputable leaker was putting this on the list. While there is hardly anything revealed for this title, not even an image, its fame alone is enough to draw the fans back to the franchise.

World of Warcraft: Shadowlands expansion

World Of Warcraft Shadowlands Leak Bolvar
The new Lich King and the Continent of Northend is brought back, one more time

Another leak about the next expansion of World of Warcraft dubbed it the name Shadowlands. Based on related merchandise displays, it looks like the Lich King would return once more, as Bolvar, the current master of the Scourge, is back. As World of Warcraft is losing players left and right, plus the fanbase’s division because of Classic, it is probably time for Blizzard to push out some interesting content to stem the bleeding.

A surprise?

A brand new game might even be announced

While another port of a blizzard game would be nice to see, there is hardly anything else that could be expanded upon except the previously mentioned titles. Who knows what the last game might be, as Blizzard might as well surprised us and introduce a completely new title. While further details remain to be seen, however, if they manage to surprise the fans with their announcement, every other scandal would pretty much be water under the bridge.

BlizzCon 2019 would be held at Anaheim Convention Center in California, from November 1 to November 3. Interested in more BlizzCon related news? Please check out this article for the aforementioned Diablo 4 leaks.
