Little blizzard from Blizzard? The name of the long-awaited ninth expansion of World of Warcraft and a potential promotional image is circulating on the net.
While Blizzard must present in more detail the future of its emblematic MMO, the American giant could have spilled the beans earlier than expected. As a result, the name of the ninth expansion and its name would already be known.
Is the name of the next expansion of World of Warcraft known?
Is the next extension of World of Warcraft revealed in advance? While the new WoW DLC is to be announced with great fanfare during a presentation on April 19, the first potential leaks are starting to swarm on the web. It could nevertheless be that we already have the name of the next extension of the MMORPG and its theme. Source? Blizzard itself, or rather the source code from its official site.
The specialized site Wowhead and a few users dug into the bowels of the site until they discovered the mention of “Dragonflight“. A word is spotted several times and in three forms: basic, epic and heroic. Occurrences that could correspond to the different versions available with each World of Warcraft DLC release, all including their additional bonus lots.
The dragons in the spotlight
This mention of the world of warcraft Dragonflight clearly hints that dragons would be central to the next adventure. Some tend to think that it would be a well-hidden April Fool’s joke from the publisher while others believe that the information is authentic. Especially since it tends to confirm other elements Data mined a few weeks ago, also mentioning dragon mounts and items. Remember that in the world of Warcraft, a flying dragon represents the family of one of the five Dragon Aspects, identified by the colors red, green, black, gold, and blue. Their last appearance in the game was in Cataclysm, with Neltharion, the one who was once the Aspect of Earth.
At the same time, a supposed promotional image of Dragonflight started circulating online. It features what appears to be a portrait of Alexstrasza the Lifebinder, the Aspect of the Red Dragonflight, and the set’s logo. Once again, tweezers remain de rigueur, especially since well-made pranks are numerous in the Wow universe.
