Once again we see a hint of a big change coming to World of Warcraft in the near future. This time we see a new launcher image. Could this confirm my theory about World of Warcraft II and is this another hint for World of Warcraft 2 or is it just a new image because Blizzard didn’t like the old one?
Blizzard added a new image to their launcher or World of Warcraft. This image can be seen if you don’t own Battle for Azeroth and on the PTR. The last image they had shows one important character for each expension. For example we saw the Lich King from WOTLK and Deathwing from Cataclysm. This new image shows us a dwarf on a Gryphon and probably an Orc on a wyvern. So the hints to expansions have been replaced by this new image. Could this mean that they want to make clear that every expansion except BFA is free if you have a subscription?
Another hint for World of Warcraft 2?
This could also be a hint for my theory that Blizzard is working on the next expansion for World of Warcraft called World of Warcraft II. The reason for this could be that Classic is in theory World of Warcraft 1 so it would make sense to call the live version World of Warcraft 2. This name could also attract players because it is not just a new expansion. Blizzard never did huge changes to the game because the is a part of the fan base that loves the old game from 2004. But now that we have Classic for those people Blizzard may gives the game a huge update. One that could make the game feel more modern. So this could be another hint for World of Warcraft 2.
