World of Warcraft officially announces patch 9.1.5 release date of November 2

Oh, hey there.

Earlier today we noted that World of Warcraft’s most recent build for patch 9.1.5 was marked as a release candidate, which in and of itself means that the update was getting closer to release. Now we have an official date via the game’s official Twitter account: Patch 9.1.5 will be released on November 2nd, just under two weeks from now.

For those of you looking forward to a whole lot of new content… well, you’re not getting it. This is not a patch with a whole lot of content. There is a fair amount of old content, however, with Legion Timewalking and the return of the Mage Tower challenge. Players will also have access to a number of different customization options for several allied races (Void Elves, Nightborne, Lightforged Draenei, and Highmountain Tauren) as well as a number of the changes that have been made to remove content Blizzard no longer wants present in the live game.

Edit to add: We would like to make sure our readers recall that November 2nd is also the date of the third-quarter financial conference call, when the effects of the ongoing scandal will be in full view as the reporting will cover the period of July, August, and September.

Activision-Blizzard is considered a controversial company in the MMO and gaming space owing to a long string of scandals over the last few years, including the Blitzchung boycott, mass layoffs, labor disputes, and executive pay fiasco. In the summer of 2021, the company was sued by the state of California for fostering a work environment riddled with sexual harassment and discrimination, the disastrous corporate response to which has further compounded Blizzard’s ongoing pipeline issues and the widespread perception that its online games are in decline. As of fall 2021, multiple state and federal agencies are currently investigating the company.

How are people justifying playing at this point? That trailer was worse than most kickstarter ones and the actual content is a joke.

Well, not bad timing, a few weeks before Endwalker, but the Legion time walking coming only a few weeks after Endwalker probably wasn’t a smart decision, as many people will still be moving through the story, or progressing on the extreme trials, etc.

So this means another year to year and a half before the next expansion, right?

How does the wealthiest, most profitable MMO in the world also have the slowest release cadence in the industry?

Bad project management.

They want to milk the cash cow, but not feed it.

Its going to be real interesting to see what happens next. I don’t think any of us would be shocked if the live team is now running on a budget as its all hands on deck to get out a 10.0 for those launch day box sales and get this critical hard flop over as fast as possible.

Gotta see what the main character and Danuseurs waifu does after becoming the new arbiter and super-forever double redeemed or whatever asinine horseshit is coming inbetween MCU rip offs.

Not enough for me. Solo endgear progression and significant class rebuild or new skills is whats gonna get me back to the game. As it is ill get my solo progression else where.

Well… that “video” pretty much tells me that WoW now has a Shoestring budget, and a directive to say as little as possible about anything.

Shroud of The Avatar puts more into their patch announcements than this….I’ betting the next Blizzcon will be the last.

Honest question to those actually playing.

Is this patch actually ready? Or is it being rush out to get it out before 11/23?

I’ve heard some people say it’s not done but I have no context since I don’t play.

Either way I wonder how long they’ll take for 9.2

Reader

It’s ready, it has far, far more than a normal .5 patch (which never have new zones, raids etc), probably because a full major patch is dropped for Shadowlands (9.2 will definitely be the final one).

That’s good at least.

It will be interesting to watch the future unfold from the sidelines. Though I’ll say this, they need a homerun next expansion and I don’t see Ion having that in him.

Holy shit this isn’t out yet? I stopped playing/paying attention to WoW and I thought this had come out months ago.
