Based on past comments from Blizzard, fans have speculated the next expansion will return players to Azeroth in the aftermath of WoTLK Gold the cosmic adventures of Shadowlands. Typically, the game's new expansion is announced well before the final battle of the current expansion, since Blizzard typically would announce new content at the regular BlizzCon gathering in November. In 2021. however, there was the debut of a BlizzConline event, with something similar being planned for 2022's first quarter. It didn't come to happen, as this year's BlizzCon postponed due to reasons including the ongoing COVID-19 virus along with recent sexual harassment as well as discrimination lawsuits. Blizzard has stated it will use some of the usual amount of time in planning the event to instead reimagine its future.

Blizzard's mobile World of Warcraft game has been in development for quite a while. What exactly it will be isn't known, but Blizzard is making the important distinction of stating that the game is located in the World of Warcraft universe but it doesn't appear to be directly connected to World of Warcraft proper.

WoW Classic Files imply Wrath Of The Lich King Classic Could be In The Works

World of Warcraft Burning Crusade Classic and WoW Classic Season of Mastery are both in full swing and if the new files that reference games' Wrath of the Lich King expansion show any signs, it might not be much longer before Blizzard adds yet another way for players to relive the glory days of the game.

As MMO-Champion has reported, a recent release of the Burning Crusade Classic build pushed onto the game's patch server indicates the possibility that Wrath of the Lich King Classic may be on the in the works. A new folder for files has been found in the client for the game titled "Interface-Wrath" that has been updated with changes specifically for the Wrath of the Lich King expansion, such as support for the new Deathknight class on the screen for character creation and blue buttons for the interface to login.

That means players might get to take on Icecrown Citadel and confront Arthas sooner than later, but Burning Crusade Classic will likely need to be at the conclusion of its content cycle before this happens. In the game, Black Temple and Mount Hyjal raids were announced in January buy WoTLK Classic Gold. That means the remaining updates like the Gods of Zul'Aman and Fury of the Sunwell will come later in the year.
