Blizzard resigned to begin issuing refunds to players who pre-ordered World of Warcraft: Shadowlands after the developer announced that the much-anticipated expansion would be delayed by a significant margin. Anyone who pre-purchased the game can request a refund from the developer if they are unhappy with the delay.
The news comes after Blizzard announced that the expansion of World of Warcraft: Shadowlands would have a new release date of October 27; however, the developer has since changed its mind. The Shadowlands expansion is poised to bring a lot of changes to the highly acclaimed World of Warcraft, one of the most popular MMORPGs of all time. To ensure that players are satisfied with the expansion and that the launch goes smoothly, the developer has been compiling feedback from players.
The feedback indicated the launch of the Shadowlands expansion wasn’t going to go as well as they had hoped, citing that more polish and balance was needed. As a result, John Hight, the executive producer of World of Warcraft, announced the delay on October 1. Blizzard will be adding a new and improved dungeon to Shadowlands; a feature that will be unlike anything that has ever been seen on WoW before.
