Blizzard has announced that they will be delaying the World of Warcraft: Shadowlands Livestream originally planned for June 9th. This delay is because of the ongoing protests for racial justice and police reform that are currently happening in the United States and around the world.
Blizzard had previously announced that BlizzCon, the physical yearly Blizzard Convention, would be canceled this year, and instead look to hold a digital alternative in early 2021. They also announced this Shadowlands reveal event at the same time.
The event was to showcase the upcoming expansion. It features the executive producer, John Hight, and the game director Ion Hazzikostas as they show us a look into Shadowlands.
