Blizzard has postponed a livestream event to WoW: Shadowlands scheduled for June 9, 2020 because of the recent unrest in the United States. We summarize all the details for you.

The current situation in the USA is widespread within the gaming industry and now also affects World of Warcraft: Blizzard has postponed an originally planned live stream for June 9, 2020 indefinitely.

The developers had previously announced that they would host a simulcast live stream on June 9th on Twitch and Youtube with WoW executive producer John Hight and game director Ion Hazzikostas. The stream should revolve around the upcoming WoW Shadowlands expansion and share "latest content under development" from the Shadowlands with the community.

Blizzard: "More important voices than ours have to be heard"

However, Blizzard decided to postpone the event due to the riots in the USA and wrote in a blue post (via Wowhead):
"Voices more important than ours need to be heard, and now is the time to listen. We're postponing our World of Warcraft scheduled for June 9th (buy now for € 14.99): Shadowlands livestream and will share more details about the expansion with you in the future."

For Blizzard, postponed does not mean that it is canceled – but the developers have not yet revealed exactly when the planned live stream will take place. We'll let you know as soon as we know when Blizzard is holding a replacement event. You will also find a summary of the content shown and discussed with us on
