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.
Blizzard games are often distinct from one another -- you're not going to confuse Hearthstone with StarCraft, for example -- but they are not conceived and executed in vacuum, and there is influence between each.
This BlizzCon has been packed chock full of great announcements and cool panels to go with them.
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.
Warcraft 3: Reforged hasn't released yet (it's still dated as "end of year"), but by pre-ordering the Spoils of War collector's edition now, you will receive a number of in-game goodies in other Blizzard titles when it does go live.
What is the lifespan of a game?
A complete remaster of the original Warcraft 3 is on its way this year.
