Regardless of how you may feel about the game, there’s no denying that the team at Blizzard are masters in their crafts when it comes to delivering these cinematic trailers.
The War Within will begin The Worldsoul Saga, which will be released next year. The other two expansions, World of Warcraft: Midnight and World of Warcraft: The Last Titan, will follow it after.

From the press release:

“Beginning with The War WithinThe Worldsoul Saga ™ is grown from the seeds of what captured the hearts of players around the world when they first set foot in Azeroth,” said World of Warcraft executive producer Holly Longdale. “For veteran players, the last 20 years have led to this, and for those who have never set foot in Azeroth, this is a whole new adventure.”
The War Within, Midnight, and The Last Titan encompass one of the most ambitious creative endeavors ever attempted for World of Warcraft, designed as standalone narratives that feed into an overall story arc,” said Warcraft general manager John Hight. “Alongside these epic adventures, the ongoing quality-of-life feature updates players have come to expect from us since Dragonflight will continue in The War Within, further setting us up for the next 20 years and beyond.”
“As we begin a new era at Blizzard Entertainment, I am inspired by the World of Warcraft teams’ passion for players and their expansive vision for the future of their storytelling,” said president of Blizzard Entertainment Mike Ybarra. “The legacy of World of Warcraft spans generations, and the beginning of The Worldsoul Saga is the perfect time for anyone who has memories of this legendary universe to celebrate, rediscover, and come home to Azeroth.”

World of Warcraft: The War Within doesn’t have a release date other than a 2024 window, though players can now pre-order one of the three available editions starting today on Battlenet. All I can say, as an old-time player, this has me excited! Let’s hope that Blizzard can deliver on these new expansions.
