People say Summer 2019 ?
Usually when a gaming company states one of the four sessions it means at the end of it. This generalized statement usually gives them wiggle room for delays after that.
I never was able to read anything coming from Blizzard.
For some reason their web site was always so full of fluff I could never get the answers I searched for. I'm sure an update statement is their, but not in the mood to search for it..... Being middle of April something should be more nailed down.
Added short story:
Several months ago a fellow worker that lightly plays around with programming, he got a hold of a Vanilla World of Warcraft emulator and was able to get it working, change things around such as difficulty and loot drops, basically anything he wanted. However he fell short of making it go live on the Internet only because he lost desire.
He's clearly a novice programmer.
Obviously their is more to it than that, such as price plans, large quantities of servers, and unforeseen difficulties...... But come on, this is Blizzard, they do this for a living and have years of experience of such unforeseen difficulties.
This situation reeks of marketing, timing and "pure big profit" standing in the way of us getting a classic game.
