Blizzard has revealed the Overwatch BlizzConline schedule. After much anticipation, Overwatch fans can now prepare to attend the online event.

BlizzCon, an annual convention held by Blizzard to promote their current and upcoming titles, was canceled in 2020 due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. This year, the game developer decided that it will host BlizzCon online, hence the name, BlizzConline. For the upcoming event, Blizzard will be focusing on World of Warcraft, Hearthstone, Diablo, and Overwatch. They posted game-specific schedules for the convention on their website.
