Ever since Blizzard cracked down on some very well known World of Warcraft vanilla servers, fans have been anxiously waiting for them to announce their own. So far there has been little indication that Blizzard is creating the highly requested feature, which removes most of the more recent changes to World of Warcraft, making for a more classic experience for longtime fans. However, rumors began circulating that an announcement could come at the upcoming Blizzcon. Blizzard has now killed these rumors, but also hinted that hope was not completely lost.
In an announcement J. Allen Brack and the World of Warcraft development team explained, “We’ve seen some talk among the community that you might be expecting to hear some news on legacy servers at BlizzCon, and we just wanted to take a moment to let you know that while we’re still discussing the possibility, we won’t have any updates to share on that until after the show.”
Brack goes on to say that the team has been too focused on the recently released World of Warcraft: Legion expansion, as well as their preparations for Blizzcon. Any news will likely be around that, rather than the vanilla servers that a subset of fans are asking for. Still, the mere promise of potential news on this front some time after the convention is pretty big, and promises more than what there was before.
