Battle.net Launcher Displays Burning Crusade Classic Launch for June 1st
Users on Reddit have begun sharing screenshots of an image that appeared on the Battle.net Launcher for a few moments earlier today stating the release of Burning Crusade Classic will be on June 1st. Blizzard has yet to confirm this date and the image has since been removed from the launcher.

This might also correlate with our previous coverage of character snapshotting having a template date of May 18th, 2021.

    That has to be the prepatch, right?

    No way the prepatch will be less than 3 weeks.

    Why would you play horde if not for blood elves?

    guys this wont be the release of tbc! if this date is somewhat a confirmation of something then it is the pre patch. blizz said they want to give players the chance to level the new races in pre patch and we dont even have the pre patch on live servers.

    It has to be the pre-patch. Looking forward to level a blood elf.

    If this is the real release date and the prepatch would be 18th may as some speculate I'd be disappointed. 2 weeks for me personally is not going to be enough to level my draenei. I was hoping for a month of pre-patch with draenei & blood elves. Still excited though.

    yeah, but I bet thats just pre-patch, because giving less than a month for people to level their Draenai and Belfs is way too short and they will give at least a week if not two for snapshot.

    I also think so.
    My guess: the patch will be announced 7-14 days before it hits the servers and will be live longer than back in the days to buy some time for the tbc bugfixing and work around the silly season. Additionally everybody could level up the new races and farm pvp gear There is enough content / gear grab in the prepatch to keep people busy for quite some time. Shadowlands 9.1 could be around mid June, TBC launch end of August.

    Earliest I was expecting would be mid june with pre patch on may 18.. 2 weeks of pre patch without any confirmation so far just seems too weird

    Reals restart on this Wednesday might be a small set up.

    That images says "return to Outland", that means Expansion, not pre patch, literally.

    Could be that pre patch is coming in a week then.

    I personally hope not, hope it is the pre patch date.

    Conspiracy theory: Blizzard intentionally leaked the image in order to get feedback on the date.

    you not know the story of how 'classic' became a thing. why blizzard went after private servers, then hired the same people they sent cease and destroy letters to?

    They 'lost' the code. They've rebuilt the game in the new game engine as well.

    So. Serious question, where have you been under a rock?
