With 2023 just less than two weeks away, Blizzard released its 2023 roadmap for World of Warcraft to give players an idea of what to expect next year in the game.
Specifically, players can expect two major updates to the games, with each featuring new zones raids, and seasonal rewards. Along with these, players can also expect to see new world events updates to systems, evergreen holidays, new dungeon experiences, new narrative chapters, and cinematics.
Aside from the big season updates, players can also expect big patch releases in winter, spring, summer, and fall. The first update is the upcoming 10.0.5 content update which will go live early next year. It will bring the Trading Post system which allows players to earn a wide range of cosmetic rewards of their choice, as well as allowing Poor-quality and Common-quality items to be acquired as transmog appearances (great news for playersw who want a more low-profile look). There will also be new world content in the Primalist Tomorrow area.
The next big update is 10.0.7 which will feature a new campaign and repeatable world content that are set in the Forbidden Reach. This update will set up the next major chapter of Dragonflight. Plus, the update will feature questlines for Human and Orc cosmetic Heritage Armor, update some of the recurring holidays, and more.
Finally, patch 10.1.5 and 10.1.7 will follow in the second half of 2023, bridging the gap between the second and third season updates. There’s not a lot of details about what to expect here yet, but Blizzard promises more content, events, and more will be added.
