The next World of Warcraft expansion will be revealed this week, with the latest leaks suggesting that the WoW: Dragonflight DLC will be announced.
Blizzard has remained tight-lipped on its plans for the popular MMORPG but it appears that things will be getting a major shake up in May.
And with new content just around the corner, fans can prepare to learn about what’s coming next this week during the official WoW expansion reveal, hosted on YouTube.
When Is The WoW Expansion Reveal Time?
The new WoW expansion reveal time has been confirmed for Tuesday, April 19, at 9am PT in North America and 5pm BST in the UK. The World of Warcraft DLC announcement is being held on YouTube, and fans can already start counting down to the reveal by using the link below. Recent leaks have suggested that the next Blizzard adventure would be called Dragonflight, or have that word in the official title. This is due to this phrase being found in the official source code, suggesting it is linked to the next World of Warcraft project.
Fans have been waiting for a new adventure focused around the Dragon Isles and this could be the perfect time for the action to return to something a little more known in the world of WoW. Having travelled to different dimensions, there is a chance that Dragonflight will focus on flying foes, but fans will have to wait until the official reveal time arrives on April 19.
Blizzard’s Mike Ybarra shared a few further hints before the Wow reveal, confirming that the next WoW expansion will arrive during May 2022, adding in an official statement: “Tomorrow the Warcraft team at Blizzard plans to discuss the future of Warcraft. We’re excited to show you what we’ve been working on and where your adventures in Azeroth will go next. Next month (May), even more exciting Warcraft news on the way.”
Something that fans are also interested in finding out is whether there will be any surprise news lined up for other areas of the World of Warcraft universe. While we know that the next expansion will be the main reveal, could Blizzard also share something about the future of WoW Classic? There is no guarantee that this will happen and fans will need to keep an eye on the latest news before the big announcement rolls out on April 19.
