This post was inspired by two things: seeing that Riot Games are getting back into making tabletop games, and the recent announcement of the Explorer's Guide to Wildemount, a sanctioned Wizards of the Coast product featuring the campaign setting seen every week on Critical Role.
In case you hadn't heard, Blizzard has announced that Warcraft 3: Reforged will be coming out later than 2019 -- specifically, January 28th of 2020.
The Warcraft franchise has always pushed boundaries in the genres it inhabits. Warcraft: Orcs and Humans wasn't the first PC real-time strategy game, but with it, Blizzard helped pioneer the foundation for Battle.net as a methodology (and later a full-scale platform) to enable multiplayer games.
The Warcraft 3: Reforged team may miss their projected release date of "on or before December 31st 2019" but this afternoon's announcement of January 28th 2020 doesn't miss by much.
If you have been living in an ice cave in the frozen north, hi!
Are you in the lucky pool of people that already received your invitation to the Warcraft 3 Reforged beta?
After a quiet year since the game's announcement (but also a few weeks of some very conspicuous data updates and beta rumors), there's some news for Warcraft 3: Reforged.
After being announced at BlizzCon 2018 we haven't heard a peep about Warcraft 3: Reforged, though the announced release date at the time was before the end of 2019.
We've reported before on Warcraft 3: Reforged and the lack of an actual release date, but with BlizzCon a couple of weeks away, we've moved one step closer -- we now have a beta option available.
