During the BlizzConline event, the World of Warcraft team was present to announce the second installment of the Classic WoW saga: The Burning Crusade Classic servers that will allow nostalgic players to relive the conquering of the Outland. Since then the team has also revealed and started the closed beta test of the expansion but we have not heard of a possible release date just yet.
Until the rumors came. Eagle-eyed users of Reddit noticed that the Heroes of the Storm game hub in the Battle.net launcher featured a news piece relating to an entirely different game. According to it, The Burning Crusade Classic will be launching on June 1st.
When the expansion launches, you will be given a choice for each of your existing WoW Classic characters: to progress to the Burning Crusade, or to continue in the original WoW Classic content on all-new “Classic Era” servers coming with the rollout of TBC Classic. Players who want to experience the best of both worlds will have the option to “clone” each WoW Classic character as an optional paid service.
If you do not have WoW Classic characters, you can purchase an optional level-58 character boost service. The boost will not be usable on Classic Era realms or on the new Blood Elf or Draenei races. Additionally, only one character boost is available per WoW account.
