World of Warcraft

On behalf of the entire World of Warcraft team, I’d like to extend a heartfelt thank-you for your patience as we’ve continued to work on Shadowlands, and for all of the words of support after we made the tough decision to delay the game. Today, I’m happy to share that the expansion will be arriving November 23 at 3 p.m. PST

Through the Jailer, Sylvanas Windrunner plans to seize control of fate itself—but at what cost? World of Warcraft: Shadowlands—coming November 23.

A sincere thank you to the tens of thousands of Alliance players who fought and won the Battle for Azeroth War Mode campaign in Nazjatar. Never before have so many players come together in common purpose for so long during a period of severe crisis in and out of World of Warcraft.

Mark your calendars, the Shadowlands pre-expansion patch arrives October 13. Check out our latest survival guide video to learn more about what’s in store. 

The Running of the Gnomes is an event where the whole of the Warcraft community gathers on one singular server, Scarlet Crusade, and travels from the Gnome starting zone to Booty Bay to help raise awareness and funds for Breast Cancer.

To help you prepare for the upcoming Shadowlands pre-expansion patch and plan your adventures from now until Shadowlands arrives, we’ve compiled a variety of helpful information.

I wanted to let you know that we’re delaying the release of Shadowlands to later this year—and while we’re still in the process of determining the right new date to launch, we felt it was important to let you know about this change in plans as soon as we could. This was an incredibly difficult decision for the team, as we’re as eager to get the expansion into your hands as you are to play it—but ultimately, we feel it’s the right decision for the game—and for our players.
