BlizzCon 2023 Announcements  – Everything we saw at BlizzCon

Here are all the major BlizzCon 2023 Announcements on show at the opening ceremony.

BlizzCon is always full of big announcements, but 2023 has an air of extra suspense about it. From the Warcraft team suggesting it could be the biggest yet, to the complete lack of (credible) leaks. We know BlizzCon has two WoW demo stations; one for Retail 10.2, and the other for Classic. Leaks from Classic suggest a “1.5” Classic client, which has led to people assuming we'll get Classic +. Anyway, if you're here early, you can check out our prediction article if you like, and if you're here late, why not see how wrong we were?

If you're here early, then thanks for that, but do feel free to watch the stream yourself below. And if you're not, also thank you, and hey, why not recap everything anyway?

Regardless, we'll have all the major announcements below, alongside videos and images etc. You'll also find our WoW Panel “What was announced” article once those go live.
