    Will we still get Wrath Classic

    I know i cant be the only one wondering this. With Microsoft now having control over acti/blizz in the near future, do you think they will continue to work on legacy projects? i have been hoping for a while now for classic servers for various expacs and have been excited for eyars now for a wrath server. Will Microsoft let them keep making classic servers or do you think they will stop them and only move foreword with retail?

    Did they even plan to release WotLK classic yet?

    AFAIK they never talked about it.

    that's my hope as well but there hasn't been much noise with blizz for a bit now one way or the other about upcoming wrath server at all. and blizzcon getting cancelled and them baggin on the game awards due to the scandal you would think they would say something to at least get some positive interaction but there has been nothing other than we will see what the community wants and i think that was 2 years ago now.

    Classic makes money. Players want it.

    I know several people planning to come back for WotLK classic personally. WoW's peak period, IMO.

    I think they're more likely to mothball retail than classic. Once they get through wotlk they can just keep recycling that content ad nauseum.

    I don't see why they wouldn't. Microsoft most likely won't be involved with Blizzards projects and if WotLK Classic was going to be a thing there's a good chance that it will release late this year or early next year, which is before the deal is finalized. WotLK Classic hasn't been officialy confirmed yet other than hearing from Towelie that its going to happen.

    Releasing classic costs almost nothing in terms of money while bringing a ton of money in subscriptions. Why would anyone not do it?

    Would you be too disappointed if Shadowlands is way more popular than classic?

    Stop trying to stir shit.

    Nowhere did the previous poster mentioned which was more popular than the other, just that players want it, and that it will make money. Which it will, at very reduced costs.

    It's likely that it will be released. Classic has made money for them. Development costs are low and possibly lower for each new classic expansion since less has to be changed.

    Doubtful that they will mothball retail. Because that would be ridiculous a fever dream. They both make a ton of money and it would be criminally stupid to stop either one.

    If they want to release Wrath classic.

    3.0 was too easy

    They should release 3.1 Ulduar patch rather early.
    Like max 2-3 months after release.

    And then they can keep Ulduar up a little longer like 4-6 months to balance. Ulduar was great raid and it took much longer to clear it.

    I do care more about Brawlers Guild right now. Will that be coming back with the next big patch?

    This is the only answer you need.

    The ROI on Classic is always worth it. And that's completely ignoring them adding monetization to it like boosts and CEs.

    Ofc we will get it, Classic has been a huge success, Microsoft are not idiots, they obviously see this.

    Classic Wrath will likely be out before the deal is finalized, so yeah.

    Disregarding that MS has no reason to cancel Classic Wotlk.
