Blizzard has announced the long-awaited Blizzcon 2007 convention.Irvine (CA) - Blizzard has announced the long-awaited Blizzcon 2007 convention.  The convention will be held at the Anaheim Convention Center in Southern California on August 3rd and 4th and will combine discussion panels, artist signings and gaming tournaments.  World of Warcraft fans have eagerly nearly two years since the inaugural Blizzcon back in 2005.  Blizzard says tickets will be $100 per person and you can expect those to sell out quickly.

The convention will also include a costume contest and in-game music played by a live orchestra.  You can also expect some type of World of Warcraft tournament that will pit players against the developers.  At the Blizzcon 2005 convention, the Blizzard developers were mercilessly crushed in the battlegrounds by a group of skilled players.  

Two years ago thousands of fans from around the world drove and flew to Blizzcon 2005 convention which was also held at the Anaheim convention center.  Blizzcon 2005 sold out quickly and the tickets became hot commodities, fetching several hundred dollars on eBay because they contained a unique code for an in-game World of Warcraft Murloc pet.  You can read TG Daily’s coverage of Blizzcon 2005 here.
