Another update about “World of Warcraft Classic” has been posted on the game’s forum by community manager Bornakk, this time discussing the rumored beta version. To put shortly, no, a beta version isn’t rolling out soon.

“We recently began a phase of internal employee alpha testing. The new build data that many of you have been discussing over the last few days is simply part of this process. Phases like this allow us to test out the [World of Warcraft Classic] content along with other functionalities that will be used in the live game, like logging in through the Blizzard Battle.net App,” Bornakk posted.

The rumors first began when this image from bnet.marlan.in started making the rounds on the web, which many assumed to be the sign that a beta client will be released before the official launch. But as explained by Bornakk, the beta build was for Blizzard employees to test out bugs of “World of Warcraft Classic.”

Concerning the release date of the game, nothing has been revealed on this front either other than it will drop sometime this summer. The good news is that development seems to be going swimmingly for the team and there’s no indication that “World of Warcraft Classic” will not follow its given timeline.

So far, the developers have kept their promise that the game will be an authentic re-experience for those who want to be hit by the nostalgia hammer – clunky mechanics and all. The team has also continued to update its community with their progress, the latest of which discussing the PVP content of “World of Warcraft Classic.”

Bornakk said that PVP content will be following the six phases that have already been revealed. At first, there will be no formal PVP system in place similar to the 2004 launch, but that will gradually change through the succeeding months, capped off by the introduction of world PVP objectives. It’s expected that “World of Warcraft Classic” will draw in a substantial amount of players, with the estimated figure easily reaching a million population at the very least, Gambling News reported.
