BlizzCon 2023 is right around the corner, and players are hyped for the next World of Warcraft expansion.
However, the theme for the next expansion of the World of Warcraft franchise may have already leaked; here's everything you need to know.

We’re just a few weeks away from BlizzCon 2023, and World of Warcraft fans can’t stop wondering what the next game expansion might be. However, the next expansion for World of Warcraft may have been leaked already.

All thanks to Reddit user Wiraneusz, we have a new data mine revealing several achievements that can be found in the live version of the game and crossovers with the mobile game Warcraft Rumble, but there’s one specific entry that gives us information about the next Wow expansion theme.

World Of Warcraft Next Expansion Theme Leak

Reddit user Wiraneusz’s post showed us some datamined unlisted achievements that can’t be found in the game. One of these achievements refers to a potential mount called Algarian Stormrider; this is likely to be rewarded to the players who purchase Heroic Edition of the upcoming expansion. As we all know, Heroic Edition mounts are linked thematically to the expansion set they’re a part of. Due to this, we now have a good idea of what World of Warcraft’s next expansion will be about. 

While this information doesn’t include a proper model for the mount or the name, it’s a big hint. It refers to Khaz Algar, a new location players learned about in Dragonflight. It’s also possible that Algarian Stormrider could be related, but it can be an upcoming Dwarf cosmetic. 

There were also datamined assets in patches 10.1 and 10.2, which related to Dwarf, which means we’re probably going to see Dwarf-heavy expansion. But keep in mind, nothing is official, and that mount might be completely unrelated to the next expansion, or it could be the Blizzcon mount. 

BlizzCon 2023 Dates 

We don’t have to wait much longer to find out about World of Warcraft’s next expansion theme, as BlizzCon 2023 is happening soon!

BlizzCon 2023 is set for 3-4 November 2023. We still don’t have an exact start time for the Opening Night, but that event will be live for everyone. Players would finally get to know all of the biggest announcements, including what’s coming for World of Warcraft.

Additionally, Blizzard will also reveal the next Hero for Overwatch 3 and give us a look at Season 3 in Diablo 4. If there’s any new game in the works, BlizzCon is the perfect time for the announcement.
