World of Warcraft 8.0 Appears On Beta Servers, Suggesting New Expansion

Posted time: Oct 25,2017


World of Warcraft is a game of ebbs and flows. MMORPG's longevity has made it so that the player base numbers frequently fluctuate, with some veterans returning for a few months at the beginning of each new expansion before taking a long break until the next one due to real life demands. Although it feels like that the World of Warcraft: Legion launched just short time ago, in fact, actually the expansion has been out for more than a year, and now it seems that Blizzard is already preparing for the next expansion of World of Warcraft.

Several World of Warcraft fans noticed an anomaly yesterday, while using an online resources to track the patch number of Blizzard's beta servers, it appears that  Blizzard is closer to a new expansion than the fans might have previously thought.  The beta servers displayed implementation of a Patch 8.0 briefly yesterday just before Blizzard noticed and changed its designation, but not before some eagle-eyed redditors, like tiwuno, managed to grab a screenshot. 

For those who are not familiar with how patch designations work in World of Warcraft,  the number prior to the decimal generally indicates a massive content updates, usually reserved for expansions. Any patch with a 7 before the decimal applies to Legion, and those with a 6 in front would have denoted Warlords of Draenor. The emergence of 8.0 seems to indicate that Blizzard is ready to start testing a brand new expansion, which would be in line with some teases from World of Warcraft developers recently.

Although the patch number appears on the servers at a different time may be easily considered as an error, however, Blizzard is currently gearing up for BlizzCon 2017,  its annual game conference which is frequently the site of a number of exciting announcements each year. Now that the 8.0 patch has been revealed, it would not be surprising to see BlizzCon announce a new World of Warcraft expansion during BlizzCon. We already know that Blizzard plans to publish a World of Warcraft announcement at BlizzCon, so an expansion would be of great significance.

Generally speaking, it has been a strong year for Blizzard games, with Overwatch getting more than 35 million players worldwide recently - could it already be time to put the spotlight back on World of Warcraft, just over a year after the launch of the immensely popular Legion expansion? All the signs show yes, but we will find out one way or another, when BlizzCon 2017 rolls around in just a few weeks time.
