Blizzard Entertainment has officially announced the release date of Warcraft III: Reforged. The game will launch on January 28, 2020.
Probably in compliance with some consumer laws, Blizzard issued an email to those who pre-purchased Warcraft III: Reforged months ago:
” Though we’ve been working hard to get Reforged in your hands before the end of the year, as we started approaching the finish line, we felt we’d need a little extra development time for finishing touches. As always, our goal is to honor the high standards you hold us to, but we also understand if you’re disappointed by the wait—if you’d prefer a refund*, please visit our Customer Support site.”
