It's been a long wait for the next BlizzCon to happen, especially after the promotion took the year off for 2012.  But good things come to those who wait.

Blizzard has announced that the next BlizzCon is officially on, with the event set to take place Friday and Saturday, November 8th and 9th, at the Anaheim Convention Center.  The event is bound to be a huge draw for fans of Blizzard games, including World of Warcraft and Diablo III, and is likely to be the place for new announcements, guest appearances, and live music.

"BlizzCon gives us a chance to connect with our players and share our latest projects in a very personal way," said Mike Morhaime, CEO and co-founder of Blizzard Entertainment.  "Members from all of our gaming communities have helped make this event bigger and better every time, and we look forward to meeting up and celebrating with them in November."

No word yet on the official rundown for the show, but we'll know more soon.  See you there?
