World of Warcraft Classic

WoW Classic will get Burning Crusade expansion. WoW classic was released as a means of pleasing the old school fans of the game. After the initial launch, the biggest question was the status of expansions. For most people, the golden age of WoW was either during The Burning Crusade or Wrath of the Lich King. This announcement will certainly please a lot of people.

Blizzard also stated that Wrath of the Lich King would also be added, if requested by the community.
