Here’s everything we know about the next World of Warcraft expansion, from the Dragonflight leaks and the Dragon Isles setting to potential plotlines, as World of Warcraft Shadowlands comes to a close.
Following the 9.2 update, Eternity’s End, World of Warcraft’s divisive expansion, Shadowlands, will come to an end after a tumultuous run.
All eyes are on the future to see where players will be able to explore next now that The Jailer has been thwarted and Sylvanas Windrunner has been released from her own mental prison.
So, from fan-projected settings to new Dragonflight leaks, here’s a rundown of everything we know about the next World of Warcraft expansion. Unfortunately, we won’t be holding our breath for the next installment of the World of Warcraft saga to arrive in 2022.
It’s not impossible, though. Blizzard’s next expansion will be revealed on April 19, 2022, implying that it will be released towards the end of 2022 or, more likely, the beginning of 2023.
Following the release of amount and pet pack featuring scaled avian creatures, players believe the next World of Warcraft expansion will be set in The Dragon Isles, a zone that was originally planned to be included in the Wrath of the Lich King expansion.
The area was created as a raid, and while it still exists in Alpha and Beta versions, it hasn’t been touched in quite some time. It’ll be interesting to see if fan theories are proven correct, especially since Blizzard is planning on harkening back to past glory days and reportedly has the area almost ready to go.
Suggestions have been bolstered by a series of leaks claiming that the new expansion will be called ‘Dragonflight.’ Discovered in the depths of Battle.net’s website code, it appears that we will, after all, be able to visit this mysterious world.
So that’s all we know about the next World of Warcraft expansion and what it might include. We’ll keep this page updated as we learn more, but in the meantime, keep an eye on our dedicated World of Warcraft page for the most up-to-date information.
