This year, Blizzard announced it would be delaying World of Warcraft’s latest expansion Shadowlands past its October release date. Today, Blizzard announced a new release date for the expansion.
Players can hop into Shadowlands on November 23, just one week before Thanksgiving. At 3 p.m. PST, players will be able to access the new content.
You can read the official statement from Blizzard down below.

“Now that we have our launch date, we’re also excited to tell you that our pre-paunch event will kick off November 10, so steel yourselves to take on a flood of the Scourge. In addition, we’ve set a December 8 date for the opening f our first raid, Castle Nathria – which takes players into the heart os Sire Denathrius’ lair in Revendreth- along with the start of Shadowlands Season 1.”
Earlier this month, Blizzard released the official pre-patch for World of Warcraft Shadowlands that allowed players to experience all of the class and level changes. So now that players have had well over a month to find the best build for their class, they can hop right into Shadowlands and know exactly what type of gear and talents they are looking for.
The initial delay was to ensure that this is the expansion players wanted and that the content and changes reflected that. Hopefully, Blizzard has crafted Shadowlands to be the best World of Warcraft expansion yet, but that remains to be seen.
We’re excited to return to the world of Azeroth and make our way to new lands and come face to face with whatever is lurking in the Shadowlands.
Here’s the official description for Shadowlands
“With a single act of destruction, Sylvanas Windrunner has ripped open the way to the afterlife. Azeroth’s staunchest defenders have been dragged into all-consuming darkness. An ancient force of death threatens to break its bonds and unravel reality”.
