Legion release date August 30, 2016

We finally know: World of Warcraft’s Legion expansion will be released on August 30th. This sets it nearly two months after the Warcraft movie’s June 10 release date — a bit odd, considering Mike Morhaime said the expansion would arrive “on the heels” of the film — but still before the “by September 21” release date promised with the pre-order. Other than the release date, however, we don’t have any new information. The alpha is still ongoing and we don’t yet have word on when a more open beta will be coming — though with four months before launch, it may not be on the immediate horizon.

However, with an exact date, it’s time to schedule to get off work so you can bring the fight to the Legion.
