Blizzard Entertainment has decided to postpone the release of the MMO expansion World of Warcraft: Shadowlands. According to an official statement, the team needs a little more time to complete the individual features. In addition, the date for the big pre-patch is known.
The fans of the MMO expansion World of Warcraft: Shadowlans have to be patient a little longer than previously thought. The responsible developer, Blizzard Entertainment, spoke up yesterday evening and announced that the team had decided, with a heavy heart, to postpone the release of the add-on at short notice.

The original plan was that World of Warcraft: Shadowlands should be released on October 27, 2020 for PC. But as the extensive explanation from Blizzard shows, the team simply needs a little more time to complete. In particular, the endgame content and some related features are not yet at the desired level. Among other things, the team is building on the feedback from the ranks of the beta testers, which has been very helpful so far. In addition, Blizzard does not want to compromise on the quality of the MMO expansion and has therefore decided to postpone it.
There is no new release date for Shadowlands so far, Blizzard only speaks of "later this year". We expect a release around mid-November. What do you think of the shift? Did the developers act correctly or does it throw your previous plans upside down? Discuss in our forum!
When will the pre-patch come?
There is also news about the extensive pre-patch, which is known to appear before World of Warcraft: Shadowlands and already has some important new features (new level system, item squish, big story event, etc.). According to current plans, this update should appear on October 13, 2020 – in a little less than two weeks. Thus, the players should have enough time to familiarize themselves with the new mechanics before the release of Shadowlands.
