Blizzard announced Warcraft 3: Reforged back at BlizzCon 2018, slating the game for a 2019 release date. Well, here we are, with less than two weeks left of 2019, and unsurprisingly it isn’t going to meet the deadline. Now, Blizzard has announced that the game has been pushed back into 2020, but we won’t have to wait too long – it will now launch on Wednesday 29th January 2020.
In their announcement regarding the delay, Blizzard said:
“Though we’ve been working hard to get Reforged in your hands before the end of the year, as we started approaching the finish line, we felt we’d need a little extra development time for finishing touches. As always, our goal is to honor the high standards you hold us to.”
Warcraft 3: Reforged is the remaster of Warcraft 3: Reign of Chaos and its expansion Warcraft 3: The Frozen Throne, re-imagining the real-time strategy classic with “revitalized visuals, an epic single-player campaign spanning over 60 missions, rebalanced online play, a suite of contemporary social and matchmaking features, a vast universe of player-created games, and more.”
You can pre-purchase the game digitally right now from the Blizzard store for £24.99, or you can splash out on the Spoils of War Edition for £34.99. The Spoils of War Edition will bag you a host of extras for Warcraft 3 as well as a load of in-game bonuses for other Blizzard games, which will unlock immediately upon pre-purchase. You can find a list of all of those in-game bonuses included in Blizzard’s post here.
Warcraft 3: Reforged launches for PC on Wednesday 29th January 2020.
