This year's Blizzard Esports tournaments are going to be held in Asia, at the 2012 Battle.net World Championships, instead of the usual Blizzcon venue. This also means that there most likely won't be a Blizzcon in 2012. Instead, Blizzard is planning a big one in 2013.

Blizzard' class='bbc_url' title='External link' rel='nofollow external'>http://blue.mmo-champion.com/topic/216255-blizzard-announces-2012-battlenet-world-championship-event/']Blizzard Entertainment is proud to announce the 2012 Battle.net World Championship, a major global eSports event featuring some of the best pro-gaming competition in the world. Slated to take place in Asia toward the end of 2012, the Battle.net World Championship will host this year’s StarCraft II and World of Warcraft Arena World Championship tournaments. Blizzard gamers and eSports fans from around the world will be invited to attend and witness some of the most skilled pro players on the planet battle it out for cash and glory.

We’re excited to be showcasing Blizzard eSports on a truly global stage this year. We're also heavily focused on getting Diablo III, Mists of Pandaria, and Heart of the Swarm into players’ hands as soon as possible. In light of our jam-packed schedule, we’ve decided to hold the next BlizzCon in 2013.

More details about the 2012 Battle.net World Championship and BlizzCon 2013, including specific dates and locations, will be coming in the months ahead.
