WoW: Blizzard leaked 2 highlights for BlizzCon 2021 30 hours before the start

Activision Blizzard is about to start BlizzCon 2021, but two World of Warcraft highlights have already become known due to a technical error . Blizzard itself published two “blue posts” and screenshots due to an error. They already reveal the most important innovations in WoW and WoW Classic.

This Blizzard mistake is causing hit times : More than 30 hours before the start of BlizzCon 2021 on Friday, February 19th, information has been made public that was apparently planned as a major revelation for World of Warcraft:

  • The first major content patch for "WoW: Shadowlands" is known - the story development around Anduin Wrynn in 9.1 is already known
  • WoW Classic will get "Burning Crusade Classic" - this is the 1st expansion for WoW Classic, the game was the surprise hit in August 2019

Blizzard dates its own press kit 9 ​​years early

How do these leaks come about? Blizzard has leaked its own press kits for WoW and WoW Classic. On the official, freely accessible page, where journalists can usually download pictures for WoW, the new pictures for World of Warcraft, which Blizzard had apparently prepared for BlizzCon 2021, suddenly appeared.

However, the pictures were dated 7 June 2012 - 9 years too early. Because this date has already passed, the pictures could already be seen publicly.

Then fans and fansites immediately jumped at the pictures and reports. The news spread immediately on the net.

The entries have now disappeared from the site. But the information is now freely available and online: The official blue posts and numerous screenshots are circulating.

9.1 Patch and TBC Classic Confirmed Boyz! from r/wow

The pictures were on the 7.6. Dated 2012 - for whatever reason.

This has the following effects on BlizzCon: The effects are pretty serious, after all, two highlights of BlizzCon have already been anticipated here more than 30 hours.

An important reason to watch BlizzCon has at least done for fans of WoW.

The amazing thing is that this time the leak comes from Blizzard itself and so early. Typically, such leaks are the result of errors by journalists or individual Blizzard branches who incorrectly date social media posts, for example.

Most of the time, such leaks only come about a few hours before the event and not so long in advance.

"Black Day for Blizzard"

So are the reactions: The news is already being discussed vigorously on the well-known WoW pages:

  • In general, one is happy that WoW Classic continues
  • The fans are already discussing the details of how exactly TBC will be implemented in Classic
  • Many demand that the new information about Diablo should come right away
  • some compassionately note: Today is a black day for Blizzard
