Ozzy Osbourne to Appear at BlizzCon

Ozzy Osbourne to Appear at BlizzCon

Heavy metal legend Ozzy Osbourne will reportedly be making an appearance at next week's BlizzCon in Anaheim, California.

Rumors that the Prince of Darkness would be making an appearance at the annual celebration of all things Blizzard started spreading last month when fellow heavy-metal frontliner Zakk Wylde tweeted that he and Osbourne were reportedly going to be appearing together at the show. Last week, there was a bit more fuel thrown on the rumor fire when another (less-known) guitarist said he'd be playing there, too.

Now, a DirecTV listing seems to confirm this beyond a shadow of a doubt, reports wow.com. Assuming that, as Blizzard's media partner for the event, DirecTV knows what it's talking about, we now know that Osbourne will making a "special appearance" at the event. And that's... actually all we know. Nothing more than that.

So, time for some wild speculation!

The obvious conclusion is that Ozzy will be taking the stage either alongside (or instead of) Blizzard in-house band Level 80 Elite Tauren Chieftain, but as awesome as that would be, it's kind of a boring prediction. So how's this: Bitter over Activision cutting loose Tim Schafer's Brutal Legend, the big bosses at Blizzard have decided to make their own heavy metal game. A heavy metal MMOG, in fact! Named Cataclysm.

So yes, there you have it, folks. Blizzard will be announcing a heavy-metal-themed MMOG named Cataclysm next week at BlizzCon via Ozzy Osbourne. Or, uh, I guess they could be making that Bard class a reality.

BlizzCon is August 21st and 22nd, and your trusty News Team will be right there covering the event!

This is AWESOME, to bad he propley do shit all

If that bard class was actually in Wow I think I'd buy it right now. Or think screw you activision/blizzard I'm getting brutal legend.

I wonder how this cataclysm game will fair in the mmorpg market, wasn't there a rap rpg coming out at some point? If so I can't wait to see how the folk music version turns out

*gets out harmonica in anticipation*

Make a Heavy Metal Bard skill tree. A 1,000,000 new players will subscribe instanly. And I would try it too.

I want to see him bite the head off of a Murloc.

lol that would be awesome. anyway a heavy metal mmorpger would be actually pretty cool and i would play it! and would i ever be surprised if thats actually the case

Blizzard really have fun and successful advertising I think when it comes to WoW. Mr. T and Ozzy are icons that a lot of their fans and the general populace respect for various reasons. In both adverts the icons manage to make fun of the game and themselves, which I think is a good marketing tactic.

Normally i would find that rather cool, but have you seen ozzy when he makes special public appearences? Hes usually really out of it and just mumbles away incoherently...oh god now im remembering when he sang "take me out to the ball game"...

Probably won't know where he is or what he is doing.
