World of Warcraft: Burning Crusade Classic release date may have leaked ahead of an official announcement.
The classic server option for World of Warcraft’s first expansion will arrive sometime this year, and recent rumors have suggested it could arrive earlier than expected. The expansion has been available on PTR as part of the closed beta since March, with Blizzard regularly releasing new builds. So when will the general public be able to re-enter Outland? Well, really fast if the official Blizzard launcher is to be believed.
Apparently, the launcher briefly mentioned a worldwide release next month on June 1st (that’s a Tuesday). According to Reddit user ‘Nonbread’, the article only appeared on the launcher’s Heroes of the Storm page and clicked on the article linked to the World of Warcraft Classic website. A screenshot with the release date can be seen below.
At this time, we have not been able to verify whether this image is real or whether we are just looking at a counterfeit image. If legitimate, it would mean Blizzard plans to launch TBC Classic in less than a month and this has fans speculating that the upcoming TBC pre-patch will only take two weeks. Interestingly, this is in line with the timeline for the expansion that leaked some time ago – a pre-patch that runs for two weeks and starts on May 18.
Take the above information with a pinch of salt for now. If that’s true, it is likely that Blizzard will officially announce the release date in the coming days.
World of Warcraft: Burning Crusade Classic was officially announced at BlizzConline in February of this year. Prior to the announcement, the classic TBC server option was already leaked via a press release.
