BlizzCon goes all-in on e-sports – Los Angeles Times

Part game conference and part sporting event, the two-day BlizzCon gathering at the Anaheim Convention Center reaffirmed team South Korea as the nation to beat in e-sports, no matter how new the video game.

The country trounced every other national team to claim the first ever World Cup championship for the recently released shooter “Overwatch.”

Although the weekend — Blizzard Entertainment’s 10th convention — marked the company’s 25th anniversary, it couldn’t quell the clamor for new content from fans. But Blizzard refrained from unveiling sequels or new titles and instead focused on supporting its main franchises, as well as bolstering “Overwatch” as an e-sport newcomer.

The company’s major announcements at BlizzCon were mostly refinements.
