World of Warcraft has been one of the leading multiplayer games for years now, making the fantasies of many users come true, rooted in all the magic and creativity that can result in an RPG worthy of the name. This has been the case since Snowstorm’s mission is to make sure these users are always motivated to find new content, and so this October we were going to be enjoying the Shadowlands expansion . However, this is something that can no longer be fulfilled.

In the statement, they point out that ”  the areas, the countryside, the mission leveling system and the story ” are aspects that are fundamentally at the point of development that they were looking for today. However, there are some points that led Snowstorm to believe it takes longer:

“As everything started to take shape and based on your feedback it became clear that we needed a bit more time to fine tune and balance some parts of the game – especially those related to the endgame . Shadowlands is one of the most complex expansions we’ve created to date, and while we’ve made great strides, the challenge of finishing the endgame tweaking had to be met. mainly with a team working from home “.

As we can see, it seems clear that the coronavirus and social adjustments that result eventually affect the work schedule of the Storm Snow , preventing the final phase of World of Warcraft: Shadowlands being reviewed and worked in optimal conditions. As a last resort, Snowstorm point out that The Shadowlands pre-update will be released on October 13 , with content such as the new leveling system or more customization options, in addition to clarifying that Before l ‘Arrival from Shadowlands, we will be holding a special event to defend Azeroth.
