    The chances of Shadowlands being canceled are worse then the doomsayers stopping being on hyperbole all the time.

    Yes, they decided they don't need all that money.

    First encrypted build was like month ago. For comparison, first encrypted build for BfA was mid-December, datamineable build late January, and Alpha started around 5th February (don't remember exact day).

    So far schedule points at October/November release, but of course it may be pushed to early 2021 if pandemic gets even more serious.

    No.
    If alpha was already out they'd have announced it ages ago.

    Not to mention that the dataminers would've shredded it to pieces.

    Are you serious?
    First of all, still half a month for the end of March...
    Second, that would be rather early, I´d expect April the earliest, mid April.
    Third... Check what´s going on around the world? That is definitely going to delay Shadowlands a couple of months at best.

    Only if it was a public alpha. They're likely running a closed private alpha for he QA team/friends and family

    I hate to say it, but the late patches of BFA proved that they now have the will and the way to keep builds (or at least selected details of said builds) from the datamining circuit that, if we're being blunt, we don't have a right to. Yes, I know it postpones hype, but if you're gonna play shadowlands (and most of us will), reasonable people are not gonna change their mind based on... not having access to an alpha that we have no entitlement to access. Beta may be the earliest we see this. At all. And we don't really have a leg to stand on to "demand" alpha access except understandably sour grapes based on precedent.

    So it will potentially "feel longer" if they keep us out (even on a datamining axis) until beta. That's not impossible.

    Duke Nukem forever would like to have a word with Shigeru - or...according to Diablo fans...Diablo 3.

    But whatever...the game can be delayed to mid 2021 and it doesn't mean it is automatically (or eventually) good. Not when it will have mechanics that people like to complain about.

    And it will have. If they fix all the mechanics that ppl complained about or remove them, then others will complain about other things. 100%, no matter what...people WILL eventually complain how "Covenants looked good on paper, but the execution is terrible"

    And that has nothing to do with "Criticism and feedback are healthy for the game" but all to do with the last 12 years on MMO C and at every twist and turn, somebody made a thread how ever feature ever added was the worst ever...often in conjunction with "x is what killed the game"

    And I am not even joking.

    Um, with 12 days left of the month how is that the end of the month? stop being such a drama queen.

    People might want to check OPs post history. Clearly a troll account.

    Anyway, not end of March yet. Confirmed release in 2020.
    Hi

    - They've been in closed Alpha for awhile now with the encrypted builds.
    - Beta will probably be in Summer.
    - It's not like they'll listen to feedback anyway unless enough people make a huge stink about it, so who cares?
    Still wondering why I play this game.
    I'm a Rogue and I also made a spreadsheet for the Order Hall that is updated for BfA.

    Jesus christ the entitlement for some datamining is seriously killing some people on this site

    Coronavirus, relax. Companies, even Blizzard are probably still adjusting.

    This. Even if the Alpha / Beta was to be released soon, this can affect it quite a bit.

    It's in Alpha. Just not an open one like the closed beta test.

    There is Alpha, but it's closed this time, as it should be. Cuz it's not Alpha, if even I can get access to it.

    Hopefully, it's ready when it's ready and not rushed out.
