Blizzard Entertainment has surprisingly not announced any of their voice actor guests scheduled to appear at BlizzCon 2010 on October 22-23 in Anaheim, CA.

We’ve also been informed that an autograph session will take place Saturday from 1-2pm.
The official BlizzCon 2010 schedule does include a “Blizzard Sound” panel on Saturday at 4:30pm, but no panelists are mentioned by name. Here’s the panel description:
It’s all ears on Blizzard Entertainment sound and music! Join us for a discussion on how topnotch voice acting, dramatic orchestral scores, and striking sound effects are used to make Blizzard’s games even more epic.
Jay Mohr (who has voiced characters for video games and animated productions) is serving as Master of Ceremonies, and rockers Tenacious D (Jack Black and Kyle Gass) will also be performing for BlizzCon’s closing ceremonies.
We hope to provide photos, video and fan reports following the event.
