We are finally there: after several months of silence, now Blizzard is ready to show the next expansion of World of Warcraft. The announcement of the reveal date of the next expansion of the MMO came through the pages of the official website of the franchise, with a very short post that also revealed where it will be possible to watch the live streaming.

It was now clear that World of Warcraft was close to receiving a new expansion. Already in the previous weeks there had been some signals on the matter, including the source code of the official website which anticipated what will be the probable name of the new expansion, complete with the start of pre-orders. The only thing missing is the official nature of the matter, which at this point will be announced in the course of next week. Yes, because the presentation in a big way is not that far off.| ); }
There are no further details at the moment, but it is not excluded that over the next few days, perhaps close to the presentation, no leaks and rumors may emerge. We will update you as soon as there is news about it, so keep following geekinco for all the details in the pipeline.
