Today Blizzard announced that Blizzcon tickets will be going on sale June 2nd and June 5th. The event, which is set to take place on October 22 and 23 in Anaheim, California, will play host to the vast communities from Warcraft, Starcraft and Diablo. The tickets are on sale for $150 each.
In the official press release, Blizzard had the following to say in regards to LIVE coverage of the event:
The popular DIRECTV® BlizzCon Pay Per View event will return in 2010, available to existing DIRECTV customers in the United States for $39.95 USD. The event will again deliver comprehensive live HD coverage from the show floor on each day of the convention, including exclusive interviews, demos, and more.
Gamers around the world will also have the option to purchase the Pay Per View event as a multi-channel Internet stream, also priced at $39.95 USD (pricing may vary by region). For the first time, anyone who purchases the Internet stream will be able to switch freely between multiple channels of coverage dedicated to different areas of BlizzCon, allowing online viewers expanded access to the panels and events they’re most interested in. DIRECTV customers who order the televised event will receive this Internet stream at no extra charge, allowing them to watch in the format of their choice. Those who order the event will also receive this year’s BlizzCon-exclusive World of Warcraft® in-game item (availability may vary by region), to be revealed at a later date. Limited streaming coverage of the BlizzCon opening ceremony and certain BlizzCon tournaments will be available via the Internet for free.
Blizzard has also announced that they have opened new positions in their company to compensate for the growth of World of Warcraft.
