World Of Warcraft Classic Ends On July 12th, In-Game Event Planned On Closing Day
After seven weeks of testing and roughly 17,000 bug reports, the World of Warcraft Classic Closed Beta test is nearing the end of closed beta testing. Blizzard Entertainment announced in a recent forum post that the current leg of CBT will be ending on July 12th to give them time to work on the reported bugs and run more stress tests. To show the dev’s appreciation, they will be holding a small in-game event on closing day.
“We have now reached a stage where WoW Classic is in a good state for reconciling remaining issues, and we intend to shift our focus away from the closed beta, which will end on July 12.
Internally, we’re working through the aforementioned bug fixes, testing the high-level zones such as Eastern Plaguelands, and doing our raid testing. We’ll make sure Ragnaros and Onyxia are ready to go.”
The next stress test is scheduled for July 25th to July 26th. “During that global test, we will roll out our multi-region hardware in preparation for the worldwide release of WoW Classic,” said Blizzard. “In addition to getting many more testers to play through the initial leveling experiences, it will be a test of the fixes and tweaks that we’ve made and are making to the game.”
