Blizzard has confirmed the WoW expansion announcement time, so we now know exactly when to tune in in order to see the reveal of the next big addition to World of Warcraft. The devs haven’t officially revealed much, but as previously confirmed, April 19 will serve as the date for all the initial details on the MMO‘s next expansion.
The WoW expansion announcement time is set for Tuesday, April 19 at 9am PDT / 12pm EDT / 5pm BST. You’ll be able to watch it on both YouTube and Twitch. As Blizzard says in the official announcement, “with the story in the Shadowlands coming to a conclusion, the time is at hand to get a sneak peek at what’s next for the heroes of Azeroth.”
While there are no official details on the expansion yet, the title – World of Warcraft: Dragonflight – appears to have leaked via a recent update to Blizzard’s own website. The update also noted Base, Heroic, and Epic pre-order options, so it’s a pretty safe bet that pre-orders will be available immediately following the reveal, meaning that a release date is likely, too.
Blizzard hasn’t given any hints about this broadcast featuring info for WoW Classic fans, but have been asking players for feedback regarding the price of a new Wrath of the Lich King release.
