It looks like WoW Classic could be getting Wrath of the Lich King servers. There have been a few indications it could happen over the past few months, though we’ve just got our biggest one yet.

One player reports on Reddit that their guildmate has received a survey from Blizzard asking how likely they are to play a Classic version of Wrath of the Lich King. A few other players have shared that they, too, got a similar email, though one reveals more of what Blizzard is asking. Apparently, the developer is keen to know how interested people are in the new servers and if they played the original expansion when it was released back in 2008.

It wouldn’t be the first time that Blizzard has gauged interest in a new WoW Classic server through an email. In 2020, some players got a survey asking their preference on starting a character in a potential WoW Classic: Burning Crusade server. One year later, of course, the expansion was re-released for the MMORPG.

The player reports follow a recent spot from MMO-Champion that a Burning Crusade Classic build featured a new file folder called “Interface-Wrath”. Reportedly, it included Wrath of the Lich King-specific changes like Deathknight support on the character creation screen and login-related blue interface buttons.

Blizzard hasn’t been entirely shy about the possibility of adding more WoW Classic servers either. In a Forbes interview back in 2019, Blizzard president at the time J. Allen Brack explained that the developer certainly could do so if the interest from players was there.

In July 2021, the state of California filed a lawsuit against Activision Blizzard alleging years of workplace discrimination and harassment. The story has since embroiled CEO Bobby Kotick and prompted the US federal government to open an investigation. It continues to unfold and to be of immense importance to the game industry.
