Blizzard Has Officially Delayed World of Warcraft: Shadowlands

Blizzard Entertainment has officially delayed World of Warcraft: Shadowlands until later this year, allowing them more time to properly balance things, improve the end game experience, and fix any nagging bugs that persist. While they didn’t give WoW fans an idea of what exact date to expect Shadowlands, they did confirm that the pre-patch for the expansion will go live on October 13th. World of Warcraft: Shadowlands will be available for PC and Mac whenever it officially releases.

“Over the past several months of testing, we’ve made significant progress iterating on and polishing the core features and gameplay of Shadowlands. We’re at a point where the zones, the campaign, the level-up questing experience, and the story we have to tell are essentially ready to share,” said Executive Producer of World of Warcraft John Hight in a recent statement. “However, as everything started coming together and we’ve been listening to and building upon your feedback, it’s become clear we need a little more time for additional polish, and to balance and iterate on some interlocking pieces, particularly those related to the endgame.”

“Blizzard has a commitment to quality. We believe Shadowlands will be something special, and we’ve heard from many of you who feel the same,” continued John Hight. “We need this extra time to ensure that Shadowlands lives up to its full potential. “In the meantime, we’re excited to announce that beginning October 13th we will be releasing the Shadowlands pre-patch, which lays a lot of the groundwork for the expansion and includes our revamped character leveling, new-player experience on Exile’s Reach, and a host of new character customization options.”
