The War Within Release Date


Hello everyone and welcome to another InstantCarry blog post! Even though there were speculations that the War Within WoW’s 10th expansion will be released at the end of 2024, or at least somewhere in November, we’ve learned that Blizzard is following it’s early 2024 pattern in terms of release dates and is pushing their products much earlier.

There has been a lot of talk of the War Within and recently more and more hype is building up around it. In this post we will cover the most important notes regarding the new expansion and help you stay up to date with the most recent information that is available regarding the War Within expansion!

World of Warcraft – The War Within Release Date Confirmed

The War Within Release Date has been confirmed to be on August 26th, at 3:00 p.m. PDT. So far there were no indications that this date will change, and the War Within expansion has been in BETA recently where many Players are given the chance to test it out before its release.

Even though it seems to be ‘rushed’, as of 2024 we’ve been quite overwhelmed by the speed at which content is being thrown out. We have Cataclysm Classic that got released recently, Season of Discovery Phase 4 coming soon as well as the War Within release date being around the corner.
