The BlizzCon schedule is out, and it sure has some World of Warcraft panels

Again, we caution our readers, as we did yesterday, that there is not any official announcement of an announcement regarding the next World of Warcraft expansion, except that you can expect one next month. But boy, there is a lot of World of Warcraft stuff on this year’s BlizzCon schedule. It’s up now, and while you’ll have to page through to November 3rd to see the actual schedule, you can see several WoW-themed panels that are also helpfully vague enough to not officially say there’s an expansion while also pretty strongly hinting at it.

Of course, those of you more concerned with Overwatch, Heroes of the Storm, or Hearthstone still have some panels to look forward to. Those of you more concerned with StarCraft II or Diablo III should just feel sad. Check out the full schedule if you want to get an idea of what’s coming; it’s a little too early to formally announce that we’ll be doing our usual liveblogs, but that does seem likely.

Of course there’s an expansion announcement incoming and though I don’t currently play retail WoW I’m looking forward to it.

Blizzard has really shifted gears on WoW content releases. Personally I feel the pace is a little too fast, but I know I’m in the minority.

Esports, esports, esports, esports. Just saying.

I guess the Diablo icon means that Diablo fans can gather by the bathroom and play rock/paper/scissors for an hour.

The latest rumors are said to be exactly that along with the possible “void hunter” hero class lead by Alleria

With Demon Hunters coming out in Legion, I’d really bet against a new class. But crazier things have happened.

I’ll do anything if they make any of the hunter specs being able to use throwing weapons as normal weapons.

Naval stuff would make WoW go next level imo.

With Sea of Thieves looking as good as it is, I wouldn’t be surprised if they “steal” it like they do with most games.

Maybe. RARE was founded on stealing from Nintendo so it would be par for course.

Hopeful for a Classic announcement. It’s been a long wait.

I’m putting that one on the same list I have had WC4 on for the past ten years or so. I’m hoping for them on a very casual and pessimistic/realistic level, I wont be sad or disappointed when they inevitably doesn’t get announced. However I would get extremely excited IF the stars would align and either of them would to be announced at any BlizzCon between now and the next couple of events.

As far as World of Warcraft expansions goes, I played Legion for about a month with is about three weeks more than I expected. Even though I don’t agree with the direction they’ve taken with the game, there will always be a spot in my heart for it and I will always look forward to hearing where they’ll take it next.

After the shit pulled last year I have a feeling that won’t happen and Legion has been nothing but successful for Blizzard.

Reader

how is successful? They recently announced they are thinking for more server merges and as far as I know, my server is more dead than ever. If they just made more money by selling tokens, pets and mounts, yes it is a success for them…

And btw, I dont know how a legacy servers project will affect their next expansion… if next expansion is good, it will be a success no matter they release legacy servers or not.. So I really cant see why the supposed legion success has anything to do about it.
