A new book list for an Untitled World of Warcraft dragonflight Prequel novel was found on Amazon with a release date of November 22, 2022. This has led to speculation about the possible release window for the dragonflight Extension.
It took no time for members of the Impressive community to start speculating. The listing was shared by WoWHead, taking into account that Shadows Rising, the prequel novel, was released four months before shadowlands Expansion came out and Illidan, the novel prequel too legion also came out four months before this expansion. Their prediction is March 2023.
Community members on Reddit also discussed what this could mean for a potential release. User Kynmarcher5000 speculated about a February-March window based on Blizzard’s statements shadowlands the explanation that season 4 would be a shorter season, patch releases ahead of release, and timing for alpha and beta testing.
“The prequel books are coming out around the same time as the pre-expansion patch, with a little later launch. The Shattering: Prelude to Cataclysm was released on October 19th, 2010, which was a week after the release of the pre-patch for this expansion (which was released on October 12th). So we have at least a rough idea of when the pre-patch for the expansion will be released.”
It seems there’s a good chance we could see each other dragonflight in Q1, but of course there is nothing official yet. But with the many releases of novels and prequels over the years, these seem to be on the right track.
With several recent announcements, from the dragonflight Extension reveal important updates including Wrath of the Lich King went to Classicas well as season 4, the World of Warcraft The calendar looks pretty full.
Speculation will of course continue until Blizzard has an announcement on when we can expect the expansion, but we should also have more idea when there will also be a title and description for this upcoming novel. Of course, the date might not even be a firm date to speculate on, but such is the nature of anticipation, something that’s not new to the WoW community after 17 years and counting.
