Blizzard has just published the full calendar for this year's BlizzCon fan-gathering, which will take place in Anaheim, Los Angeles from 2nd-4th November 2018.

Along with all of the usual panels (including a tantalising What's Next panel for Diablo straight after the opening ceremony), we also now have a confirmed calendar of esports events for both Hearthstone and Overwatch.

The first three quarterfinals of the Overwatch World Cup will take place throughout Friday 2nd November, with the remaining quarterfinal to play out on Saturday morning. The semi and final stages will then take place later on that same day.

As for the Hearthstone Global Games, Friday sees a pair of Elimination Group battles, concluding with a Winners Match in the evening. On Saturday morning the Decider Groups will play, before the semifinal and final matches which will again take place throughout the evening.

Here's the full schedule of events for both games. Note that all times are given in GMT. Add an hour for CET and subtract eight hours for PST.
