One of the big hopes for Blizzcon this year was a potential announcement on the status of legacy servers for World of Warcraft, otherwise known as vanilla WoW.
But it's not coming. In a post on the official forums, a Blizzard representative has confirmed that vanilla WoW won't enter the conversation until after Blizzcon.
Via one of the company's community managers, the WoW team and J. Allen Brack wrote this morning that they "won't have any updates to share on that until after the show", they confirmed that "we're still discussing the possibility" of running legacy servers.
"You’ve heard us say that the launch of Legion was just the beginning of the story we want to tell in this expansion," the team said.
"What we will focus on at BlizzCon is how the team is committed to making sure we bring you a steady stream of content going forward, and we can’t wait to share what’s next for Legion."
The update has frustrated quite a few on the forums, if only because the ongoing disconnect between Blizzard and the players who frequented Nostalrius has been running for well over a year. It's been six months since the classic server was shut down, and to be told that the company won't have any updates at their major annual event isn't exactly a surefire way to calm the flames.
