GamesCom 2016 – Blizzard Entertainment Coverage

This was a very strange GamesCom with no Blizzard panels. There was no Sombra (Overwatch) announcement, nor updates for Diablo III expansion or the rumored Diablo IV (Check the rumor).

Blizzard, however, brought in a new format to their GamesCom presence: Twitch Streamers. In the GamesCom schedule, you can see the appearance of various developers during these Stream shows.

The schedule was originally posted at the Blizzard gamescom hub. Below you can watch the VOD where Blizzard Entertainment revealed Heroes of the Storm: Machines of War (new expansion), World of Warcraft: Legion Patch 7.1: Return to Karazhan, and the new Overwatch map: Eichenwald.
