BlizzCon 2019 has come and gone without any announcement about the specific release date of “Warcraft 3: Reforged.” However, fans of the “Warcraft” universe should not worry because there is one specific indication that Blizzard will deliver its promise of launching the game before the year ends.

‘Warcraft 3: Reforged’ release date: Fans can still expect the game’s official launch in 2019

It has been over a year since “Warcraft 3: Reforged” was first announced, and fans have known for a while now that the game is slated to launch this year fully. It is understandable, though, if fans are quite worried about the game’s release date. Blizzard did not have any specific announcements about the game’s release date at BlizzCon 2019 last weekend.

Fans can pre-purchase “Warcraft 3: Reforged” at Battle.net, and they would also see on the website that Blizzard intends to keep its promise of launching the game this year. The page indicates that the game will be out “on or before December 31, 2019,” so there are barely two months left to wait for the remastered title.

Another telling clue that “Warcraft 3: Reforged” is close to getting released is the fact that the game has already entered beta for a week now. It was also reported that the beta would become available to more players in the coming weeks, but PC Gamer has also considered the possibility of the game’s release date getting moved to 2020.

“Warcraft 3: Reforged” is available starting at $29.99 for the Standard Edition. Paying extra $10 will get players the Spoils of War bundle that comes with in-game exclusives such as multiplayer hero skins, the Meat Wagon Mount, and other “Blizzard-wide perks.”

‘Warcraft 3: Reforged’ gameplay: Developers have 1 simple reason why they’re not changing the game’s narrative

In time for the BlizzCon, developers revealed one interesting detail about “Warcraft 3: Reforged.” The game is more like an overhaul of “Warcraft 3” and its expansion “The Frozen Throne” that was released in 2002 and 2003, respectively.

Despite the upgrades in the character design and other gameplay features, Blizzard has decided not to tweak the original story. “Fundamentally, it was an amazing story, and everybody agrees it was an amazing story we don’t need to break that,” Blizzard VP Robert Bridenbecker told Polygon.
