Blizzard Will NOT Discuss World of Warcraft Legacy Servers At BlizzCon

If you’ve been looking forward to the possibility of Blizzard allowing World of Warcraft legacy servers coming anytime soon, don’t get your hopes up when BlizzCon comes around. Blizzard has said that they will not be discussing the possibility of legacy servers at the convention. BlizzCon comes around from November 4 to November 5.

The question comes from a controversy focused around Blizzard and World of Warcraft earlier this year, when Blizzard shut down the custom server Nostalrius, which allowed players to play the base World of Warcraft game without having to worry about the expansions.

The shutdown generated a lot of flak towards Blizzard, but until now the controversy seemed to have died down.

BlizzCon is normally the place where Blizzard reveals new expansions, new games, and other new content that will be coming up on all of its games, but it seems like they’re avoiding the question of World of Warcraft legacy servers, whether just because they don’t want to talk about it or because they’re still debating in the higher ranks about what they actually want to do (or even find out a legal way to allow it to run).

Back in 2015, for instance, Blizzard released the cinematic trailer for World of Warcraft: Legion, showing Varian Wrynn and Sylvanas Windrunner leading the Alliance and Horde towards the Tomb of Sargeras, where the Burning Legion was coming through Azeroth.

The first trailers for the Warcraft movie and the Blizzard MOBA Heroes of the Storm were also revealed there. In 2014, BlizzCon was where the first Overwatch trailer was revealed.

Hopefully Blizzard will eventually update fans on the issue about World of Warcraft legacy servers at some point, so that players can get some peace of mind and see if Blizzard will end up allowing World of Warcraft servers that don’t allow have any of the game’s DLC content in them to be used by other fans.
