World of Warcraft to reveal newest expansion next week

What will World of Warcraft’s next expansion be? Forget speculation — you’ll be finding out for real in a little over a week.

Blizzard announced today that it will reveal the follow-up to Warlords of Draenor on Thursday, August 6th, at noon EDT during a Gamescom livestream. The studio said that it will have a follow-up dev chat covering the expansion on August 9th during the convention as well.

“Join us Thursday, August 6th, at 9 a.m. PDT for a special World of Warcraft event streamed live from Gamescom 2015 in Cologne, Germany — where we’ll be unveiling the next chapter of the World of Warcraft saga,” the studio teased on the offical game site.

Fans were hoping to hear about the expansion soon, considering that the last expansion has already wrapped up its patch cycle. So since we have a week until the news, how about whipping up a Massively OP office pool to guess the new expansion’s name?

Which is sad that 3 months after an expansion you lose all the people you gained.  Shows you’re not doing something right.  Blizzard has been stubborn though when it comes to WoW development.

Still that’s not exactly a ‘huge hit’.  And actually fairly dire when you consider that MoP’s 6.8 million number was the gradual result of a year-long content drought whereas WoD’s 3 million sub loss came after WoD was only 4-5 months old.

TimothyEnder  I liked Vashj’ir, it was the only fun zone in Cataclysm because it was different from what we were used to.  Too bad for some stupid reason they wouldn’t let you use that underwater mount anywhere else under water.  The sea horse was picky about sea salt content I guess?

If only 1/4 of the elitist little tittie babies writing here that they are quitting, is actually true, it portends good news for trade chat, I can tell ya that. So, I’m already optimistic. Can I pre-order now?
