World of Warcraft Classic more than doubled the game’s subscriber count. Though the most recent WoW retail expansions have failed to capture the attention of players, the classic experience represents a huge draw for World of Warcraft fans who love the game but are dissatisfied with its evolution over the years.

When WoW Classic launched in August 2019, servers quickly became crowded with players struggling to complete quests in the starter areas because enemies died almost as fast as they spawned. On top of that, performance issues arose due to lag. Players on some of the more civilized servers posted screenshots showing long, weirdly polite lines to kill quest mobs. Server queues for World of Warcraft Classic reached hours as Blizzard greatly underestimated the allure of this version of the game. Overall, WoW Classic has been an astounding success.

“When we designed the model for World of Warcraft Classic, it was important that players have a single existing subscription to support both games. We think about the WoW community as supporting both, even though Classic and Modern are very distinct experiences. And we’re committed to continuing to support both of those experiences over the long term,” Blizzard president J. Allen Brack said during the Q&A call.

So far as that commitment goes, though, we really don’t know how Blizzard will continue to support World of Warcraft Classic in the long-term. After the release of WoW Classic’s previously planned phases, there’s some debate about what Blizzard will do with the game. Some have speculated that they’ll re-release a retro version of The Burning Crusade expansion while others have argued that they should build a “Classic+” game that adds new content to the retro experience. Others have said that WoW Classic should just remain as it is.

The Shadowlands expansion for retail WoW will likely release later this year, so we hope that Blizzard will shed some light on the future of WoW Classic before the end of 2020.
