It looks like Blizzard are set to host World of Warcraft: The Burning Crusade beta test sometime in mid February 2021 while the official, global release is scheduled for May 4, 2021.
After a successful launch of World of Warcraft Classic servers, Blizzard are now gearing up toward the testing and launch of another much-requested addition - The Burning Crusade Classic servers.
As you may know, if World of Warcraft was or still is your thing, The Burning Crusade is probably the best ever expansion that Blizzard released for their popular MMORPG so it's not surprising that the developer are bringing it back.
According to the latest leaks, the first beta test for The Burning Crusade Classic server will kick off sometime in February 2021. This has been revealed by well-known World of Warcraft YouTuber StaySafeTV.
Here are the details he revealed in his video:
- TBC Beta – Mid February.
- TBC 2.0 Prepatch earmarked for April 13th/14th (US/EU).
- TBC release date earmarked for May 4th Global Release (meaning May 3rd 6 pm US ESY)
As you can see, the YouTuber also has some details on the patch and global release of the expansion. Though, keep in mind that this is yet to be officially confirmed by Blizzard and dates can change in the last minute as we learned during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Still, you will probably be excited that the beta is kicking off so soon, it's basically less than two months away and the best part it, Blizzard will probably reveal a ton of info on the release during Blizzcon 2021, which will be fully streamed online on February 19-20, 2021.
