WoW Classic is (possibly) around the corner.
Blizzard has not yet publicly confirmed a WoW Classic beta, but some information in its content delivery network points to the beta coming soon™.
Fans who are clamoring for the chance to play WoW Classic are still in the dark. Blizzard’s own support site lists the game’s beta access as a “common problem” as well. When users ask how they can sign up for the beta, “There is currently no public Beta version of WoW Classic. For a chance at being selected if a Beta becomes available, make sure Warcraft is checked on the Beta Profile settings in Blizzard account management. If you are selected to participate in a Beta test, you’ll receive an email with information on how to install the client and provide feedback.”
The game is scheduled for a summer 2019 release.
There are still plenty of questions surrounding the game. We know that it will be free to play for anyone with a subscription. Also, Blizzard will base the game off of Patch 1.12. However, will some of the more modern aspects of World of Warcraft apply to Classic? Will there be a group finder? We still don’t have many answers. Upon the release of the beta, we could have even more questions about what could be in the game. If Blizzard keeps its release date of summer 2019, the game could hit live servers any time from June 21 to September 21.
Wowhead reported that Patch 8.2 PTR hit the content delivery network (CDN) two weeks before hitting the actual PTR itself. Following this pattern, we predict that the WoW Classic beta may be coming on or around April 30.
