Several interviews published today on WoW Classic confirmed that Blizzard isn't opposed to the idea of other Legacy servers in the future
WoW Classic has just been announced, with a release scheduled for August 27, Blizzard imply the possibility of opening servers Burning Crusade and Wrath of the Lich King according to the enthusiasm of players for the Classic version.
Blizzard realizes the joy that WoW Classic is experiencing at the moment, and according to their estimate, the server population will be very busy during the launch, but what will it be like 1 month later?
The developers will study how to prepare for the future of WoW Classic, servers The Burning Crusade and Wrath of the Lich King are possible, as specified in this interview below:
Newman: Do you have a feel for how big you expect WoW: Classic to be? As a sustainable experiment, do you expect this project to be on the level of other IP variations within the company, or is this a one-off love letter to those fans that were assiduously trying to preserve history?
Brack: It's a great question, and I honestly have no way to answer it. Because there is not a realistic or reasonable way that anyone has done, that I have found, to sort of size, what is this thing? How many people are actually going to play it? I think there's going to be a lot of interest on day one. And then what is that level of sustained, 30-days-after interest?
The answer is, I don't know. If it is wildly successful, and there are huge numbers of people who are in it and are interested, and it becomes this call for the next thing, then I think that could be something that we talk about then. We certainly now have the ability to do it in a way that we never did before. It's something that now has become possible. Whether or not we will do it, I think will really depend on the fans' interest and the fans' reaction.
Newman: So there's the opportunity for, if folks wanted it, the vanilla server, the Burning Crusade server, the Wrathserver?
Brack: Yes. I don't want to trivialize the amount of work that's required to do that, or the amount of time. It's not something we can just dial up and dial down at any moment. But assuming a wildly successful Classic, we'll see what the future brings.
Closed beta test will will end on July 12 and the final stress test is now coming up on July 25-26
Blizzard will launch WoW Classic in the European region with French and German realms.
As we get closer to WoW Classic’s release, we thought now would be a good time to talk about our plans for Classic realms here in Europe.
On Friday, June 14 at 2:00 p.m. PDT, a new realm will open in the WoW Classic Beta for dedicated testing of Alterac Valley.
WoW Classic closed beta will increase the level cap from 30 to 40.
