Blizzard has announced the release window for their legacy version of World of Warcraft, World of Warcraft Classic.

While the Diablo Immortal announcement at BlizzCon seems to be hogging the limelight, Blizzard also announced the release window and some details regarding their release of World of Warcraft Classic.

World of Warcraft Classic is set to bring the game back to its roots before the launch of The Burning Crusade expansion which changed the game substantially back in 2010. It was announced at BlizzCon last year, and this year’s ticket holders were given a very short demo of the game to play.

The demo, interestingly, only lasted for an hour and much like certain abilities in World of Warcraft had a cooldown period of 90 minutes – though soon after BlizzCon these limitations were removed. Either way though, it seems first impressions are pretty good for the legacy release.

So when does World of Warcraft Classic actually launch? While we haven’t been given an exact release date, the game will be coming in Summer 2019. Furthermore, subscribers to World of Warcraft will be able to access World of Warcraft Classic for free.

At BlizzCon, Blizzard also announced that it’ll be re-releasing Warcraft 3 as well as a new hero for Overwatch.
