Blizzard is currently at a crossroads regarding the future of WoW, this retro version of World of Warcraft that they released in August 2019 and which has been a complete success since its first day of availability.
According to the WoW roadmap, the content that will be added to the game in the near future is The Burning Crusade expansion. However, this would mean the final to the vanilla era of the title due to the significant changes that TBC will introduce to the game.
For this reason, not even Blizzard itself knows yet if it will even launch The Burning Crusade or if it will do so as an independent title or as an expansion of the already known WoW.
Therefore, we will review the most important points of the news and rumors that have transcended regarding TBC. Of course, start to gather money to buy wow gold at GoldPiles because you will surely need it in the future.
Blizzard is considering a complete wipe before the arrival of TBC.
One of the things that emerged from the survey that Blizzard did to WoW players is the intention of the developers to do a wipe before the arrival of The Burning Crusade.
The wipe would cause players to absolutely lose all their progress and have to start their adventure in The Burning Crusade all over again, so it’s not a very easy decision to make for the company.
For now, rumors suggest that this is what will happen next, although it is best to wait for BlizzCon in February to dispel all doubts.
TBC will be released in May, according to a leak.
The YouTube channel StaySafe was in the eye of the WoW scene for an alleged leak that indicates that The Burning Crusade would launch at May 4.
This leak also ensures that a closed beta will begin in February, after the official announcement of the arrival of TBC to WoW at BlizzCon, so there is very little left to start to see what this expansion will offer us.
While the date would coincide with the times that Blizzard normally takes to launch new content, this information has not been confirmed or denied by the company so far.
The Burning Crusade will add new PVP modes.
The arrival of TBC will introduce WoW to the PVP Arena mode that allows players to engage in 2v2, 3v3 and 5v5 deathmatches.
In addition, these battles will be carried out on three new maps that will be added: The Ruins of Lordaeron, The Circle of Blood and the Ring of Trials.
For now, we can only wait a few more weeks until February 19 and 20, days when BlizzCon will take place and we will surely know officially what the future holds for World of Warcraft.
In the meantime, let’s keep enjoying it.
WoW is now available worldwide on Microsoft Windows PC and MAC OS.
