In context: The Warcraft franchise is about to get bigger. Besides the three content updates coming to Hearthstone this year and a new mobile game, World of Warcraft will also receive a new expansion. We already know the publisher plans to unveil it on April 19, but the name hasn't been confirmed yet.

Three weeks ago, Activision Blizzard announced what was coming to the Warcraft franchise this year. With three expansions coming to Hearthstone and the debut of the series on mobile platforms, there's a lot to expect from Warcraft. Moreover, WoW is also receiving a new expansion, and like previous ones, fans have high expectations.

Blizzard scheduled the upcoming expansion's announcement for April 19, where we expect to learn more about the new content coming with it, the release date, and the name. However, a recent report may have revealed the latter ahead of the event.

While preparing the World of Warcraft official website for the new expansion, Blizzard may have accidentally leaked its name. Using the browser developer tools, anyone can look at the website's public source code, which mentions "Dragonflight Base", "Heroic", and "Epic" pre-purchases. In addition, the code also points to a URL (dragonflight.blizzard.com) that's currently inaccessible.

On top of this, there were also web certificates registered on March 29 for the dragonflight.blizzard.com URL. So unless this is all part of an elaborate scheme built by Blizzard to throw us off, it's almost guaranteed that WoW's upcoming expansion will be called Dragonflight.

Activision Blizzard is also expected to release two new Call of Duty games (Modern Warfare 2 and Warzone 2) this year and Overwatch 2, which will have a closed beta starting on April 26. We can also expect the launch of Diablo Immortal for mobile platforms, while those waiting for Diablo IV will probably have to hang on for another year before trying it.

Whoever you are, you should be done with this game by now.

True, but I understand the ones that do not want to let go. It's hard to beat the amount of content this game has compared to all other MMOs. However Blizzard is dead...

I wonder how many people are still playing the game from the initial release date without taking a break.

I was subbed to it from 2004-2007 then I took a break to make sure I graduated highschool that year. Ever since I only sub it a 2-3 months a year.

Some people have played since release and will continue to play it, because all their "friends" are in the game by now. This is probably why Blizzard won't make it f2p..

It would be nice if they just remade this game, give it a whole new gameplay mechanic but keep the lore and allow the entire player base to transfer their progression to the new game.

Give it controller support and I'd drop ff14 in a heartbeat, always wanted to try wow but my console roots are embedded to deep even when im on pc.

I used to play sometimes using a ps2 pad and I think Xpadder which allowed me to assign keybinds to pad buttons đź‘Ť

Pretty much impossible given how old the game is. But I agree, it definitely needs controller support

I've been following WoW since its first came out and I am really happy to see that they are planning to stick around.
