Blizzard skipping E3 and not holding Blizzcon for this year

Blizzard won't showcase new details on latest projects, will have presence at Gamescom

Activision's other half has once again announced that they will not be at the largest gaming trade conference. Blizzard Entertainment will, for the fifth year in a row, sit out at E3 to take place in Los Angeles from June 5 to June 7.

The news is compounded by Blizzard reiterating that no Blizzcon will be held this year either. Gamers hoping to catch more information on the new Titan MMO or StarCraft II expansion packs will have to wait until August, specifically at Germany's Gamescom.
