    Alert your guilds, clans, houses, and fellowships—Blizzard Entertainment today announced plans for its eighth BlizzCon® gaming convention, taking place Friday, November 7 and Saturday, November 8 at the Anaheim Convention Center in Southern California. Terrans, nephalem, Alliance, and Horde from across the multiverse are invited to join Blizzard for a two-day celebration at the nexus of all things Warcraft®, StarCraft®, and Diablo®.

    “BlizzCon is always the biggest highlight of the year for us,” said Mike Morhaime, CEO and cofounder of Blizzard Entertainment. “With Hearthstone™ and Reaper of Souls™ recently launched and Heroes of the Storm™ and Warlords of Draenor™ gearing up for beta, 2014 is already shaping up to be an epic year for Blizzard gamers. We can’t wait to celebrate and share what we’ve been working on with everyone this November.”

    Tickets to attend the convention will be priced at $199 USD (plus applicable taxes and fees) each and will be available for purchase from the online event ticketing service Eventbrite via their website (www.blizzcon2014.eventbrite.com) in two separate batches. The first batch goes on sale at 7 p.m. Pacific time on Wednesday, May 7, and the second batch goes on sale at 10 a.m. Pacific time on Saturday, May 10.

    Tickets to the BlizzCon Benefit Dinner, which include admission to BlizzCon, will be priced at $750 USD (plus applicable taxes and fees) each, with proceeds going to Children’s Hospital of Orange County (http://www.choc.org) to support their Feeding Therapy Program. Taking place the evening of November 6, this exclusive event offers guests an opportunity to /eat, /drink, and geek out with developers, artists, and other folks from Blizzard before the show—all for a great cause.

    Rumor: Overwatch expected to be announced
    Blizzard could be on the cusp of announcing a new game this year, if a LinkedIn profile is any indication.

    Dug up by Internet sleuth Superannuation, the online resume states work is being done on a “top-secret project to be unveiled sometime in 2014.”

    While this could be Blizzard’s Project Titan, it could be something else entirely as the firm filed a trademark for Overwatch last month as well as a lead producer job posting for “unannounced game title.”

    Last thing we heard regarding Project Titan occurred in August 2013, when it was announced during a call to investors the game would “likely not” be a sub-based MMORPG as originally planned.

    At the time, Blizzard boss Mike Morhaime said he would move some of Project Titan’s team members over to other titles in the interim while Project Titan was taken in a “new direction.”

    He also said the project had yet to be “officially announced” and it was without a “projected release date.”

    Morhaime emphasized the team had gone through this “type of iterative process several times in the past,” and the team remained committed to the project’s quality.

    So while it could indeed be a new game in the works, “unannounced game title” could also be an expansion, extra content for Heroes of the Storm or HearthStone, or it could be Project Titan.

    You wouldn't know that though because you've demonstrably never picked up a book nor educated yourself on the matter. Let me guess, overweight housewife?
