I got an email from a PR agency associated with Blizzard Entertainment alerting that a Shadowlands Developer Livestream will take place on June 9 at 9am PDT.

On June 9, join World of Warcraft Executive Producer John Hight and Game Director Ion Hazzikostas, live from their homes, as they share a look at some of the new content the team has been working on for the forthcoming expansion, Shadowlands.

The stream kicks off at 9:00 a.m. PDT and will be simulcast on the World of Warcraft Twitch and YouTube channels.


Before I got this notification, I was doing some research for an article, but I will rather share it here.

Shadowlands Beta might be very close taking in consideration these details.

  • Battle for Azeroth Alpha started on Feb 7, 2018.
  • Battle for Azeroth Beta started 76 days later on April 24.

If we can extrapolate (using that info) when Shadowlands closed beta “might” start — it would be somewhere within a 76 days radius.

Shadowlands Alpha started on April 12.

That mark lands on June 24, 2020. So it might be safe to say that any day between June 10-24 — or 2-3 weeks range before June 24. This is speculation or theorycrafting, of course.
