Blizzard won't talk WoW legacy servers at Blizzcon
Members of a custom vanilla server of World of Warcraft, named Nostalrius, had their fingers crossed that some announcement regarding legacy servers would happen at BlizzCon but, to their dismay, it sounds like the community won't be getting what it wants, because Blizzard has ruled out any announcement for now.

On the server's official forum, a spokesperson wrote that "if Blizzard doesn't make an announcement to honor their own core values, be sure that we will".


"We’ve seen some talk among the community that you might be expecting to hear some news on legacy servers at BlizzCon, and we just wanted to take a moment to let you know that while we’re still discussing the possibility, we won’t have any updates to share on that until after the show," a post on Battle.net reads.

"...What we will focus on at BlizzCon is how the team is committed to making sure we bring you a steady stream of content going forward, and we can’t wait to share what’s next for Legion."

That announcement does point to ongoing discussions about legacy servers, and "after the show" could point to a matter of days or years. The take away is that Blizzard hasn't forgotten about the situation, but whether that will appease hungry vanilla enthusiasts for the time being is yet to be seen.
