Blizzard has finally unveiled its next World of Warcraft expansion, Dragonflight. The new expansion will take players into the Dragon Isles, adding not just new quests and raids to the game but also a new class and playable race.

Dragonflight will introduce the Evoker to Azeroth, the first strictly-ranged class since the game launched. This magic-wielding class will be available to play as the game’s new dragon-inspired race, the Dracthyr.

Along with these changes, a new system called Dragonriding will come to the game. Players will be able to fly customizable dragons with momentum and gravity and fly faster than ever before. But with all these new additions fans may be wondering, when will Dragonflight launch?

Sadly there is no official release date for the expansion at the moment.

Fans should expect to see the game launch in early 2023 should no delays be enforced, but for now, the exact date for the expansion’s release is entirely up in the air.

Those who want to try the expansion out for themselves can sign up to join its alpha and beta testing on the official World of Warcraft website. In the announcement video for the expansion, Blizzard revealed that alpha testing would take place “soon.”

We’ll update this article once we have a concrete release date for the expansion.
