Wishful thinking to the contrary, Origins looks to be WOTC free this year. Origins just posted the vendor map and “Wizards of the Coast” is nowhere to be seen.
You can take a look at the entire list at his link:
Origin’s Vendor List
The map is dated May 9th, so this could change. I find it this possibility highly unlikely as the floor map looks pretty final and there is no “Wizard’s” booth.
Sad news indeed, as I was hoping WOTC would find a new home at Origins and avoid the issues with Gen Con.
Hat tip to Haaldaar for the info.
