It seems Blizzard themselves have leaked one of their major upcoming announcements.
Blizzard seem to have some big plans in place for BlizzConline, which kicks off in some hours from now, and updates on the likes of Diablo 4 and Overwatch 2 are pretty much guaranteed. Before the show goes live though, it seems some of Blizzard’s plans have begun leaking. In fact, Blizzard themselves may have prematurely spilled the beans on which might be a big reveal.
As reported by Wowhead, Blizzard recently sent out press kits earlier than they were supposed to, mistakenly unveiling plans for a major addition to World of Warcraft Classic, with Burning Crusade – the MMORPG’s first major expansion from back in 2007 – reportedly getting the same classic treatment that the base game got a couple of years ago.
“Journey through the Dark Portal once again in World of Warcraft: Burning Crusade Classic,” the message accompanying the press kit reportedly reads. “Originally released in January 2007, The Burning Crusade summoned the heroes of Azeroth to the shattered and fel-scarred realm of Outland to stop an invasion of the demonic Burning Legion. In 2021, Blizzard Entertainment’s recreation of the first World of Warcraft expansion will give players from around the world a chance to return to Outland as it once was to relive an era of timeless adventure—or experience what awaits beyond the Dark Portal for the first time.”
Other BlizzConline announcements have also leaked recently, including a new class for Diablo 4, and a remaster of Diablo 2 that is supposedly launching later this year.
BlizzConline kicks off at 2 PM PT later today. Stay tuned for all the updates from the event.
