BlizzCon 2018: World of Warcraft Classic is releasing next summer


We all knew that World of Warcraft Classic — the legacy server that will take players back to the vanilla version of the MMO — would be playable at BlizzCon and at home this week with the virtual ticket. But the question on everyone’s lips was, when would the game become available?

WoW’s new executive producer, John Hight, took to the stage on Friday to answer that question, which he did so very succinctly: It will release in Summer 2019. Hight said that all subscription holders will be able to access it as part of their standard World of Warcraft access.

Blizzard will be talking more about the making and testing of WoW Classic during this convention, although you may be trying to get your one-hour doses of the demo instead. What do you think about the date and the potential of this server? Let us know in the comments!
