Some unfortunate news for those that were looking forward to playing the new World of Warcraft expansion. Blizzard announced today that the upcoming Shadowlands expansion will be delayed to ‘Later this Year’. It was set to launch on October 27th, but given the Coronavirus situation, it’s not too surprising to see the game delayed, especially since Cyberpunk 2077, Magic Legends, and numerous other games have been delayed already this year. wow classic gold for sale
While we don’t have an exact release date for Shadowlands anymore, it can’t be much further out as most of the game seems to be ready to go according to the official Blizzard comment and ‘later this year’ means at most late December.
The Shadowlands 9.0 pre-patch is set to arrive on October 13th though and will contain the new leveling experience, the new Exile’s Reach starter area, new customization options, and the Scourge event.
“The anticipation and demand for Shadowlands is the highest it’s ever been for a World of Warcraft expansion, and it is important for us to deliver an experience that meets our highest expectations and those of our players,” said John Hight, executive producer for World of Warcraft. “With that in mind, we made the decision to do what’s right for the game and take the extra time, and we think players will enjoy this expansion even more as a result of the additional work.”

In a new post on the World of Warcraft official site, Blizzard Entertainment announced that time is running short for Battle for Azeroth and that players should start working on their unfinished business in Azeroth before they’re whisked to the afterlife.
“When Sylvanas Windrunner shatters the veil between worlds, you’ll be leaving Azeroth behind—at least for a time. But before you journey to the Shadowlands, you may want to spend your remaining moments in the mortal realms seeking out a few rewards that will no longer be obtainable (or will be more difficult to acquire) in the next expansion.”
In other World of Warcraft news, Blizzard has pushed back a number of the planned US realm connection due to unforeseen technical problems. The studio is also gearing up for the opening of the Gates of Ahn’Qiraj in World of Warcraft Classic.
In the dark recesses of the mountain’s peak, Nefarian, the eldest son of Deathwing, conducts some of his most awful experimentation, controlling mighty beings like puppets and combining the eggs of different dragonflights with horrific results. Should he prove successful, even darker pursuits rest on the horizon. And, yet, the Lord of Blackrock is not a mere scientist – he is a great dragon cornered in his lair. Can he truly be defeated by mortal hands?
