We provide a general argument for the possible existence of a new critical point associated with a deconfinement phase transition in QCD at finite temperature T and in a magnetic field B with zero chemical potential. This is the first example of a QCD critical point in a physical external parameter region that can be studied using lattice QCD simulations without suffering from a sign problem.
