When Does World Of Warcraft Patch 9.2 Release?

World of Warcraft patch 9.1.5 is finally here and players can now freely switch their Covenants and the AOE cap has been removed among a whole list of other quality of life changes that have been added to the game.

Players can now begin looking forward to patch 9.2, as there was no new content that came with the previous patch, just a number of changes that will make the rest of the game feel a lot smoother.

Late last week, Wowhead reported on an encrypted build being uploaded to the WoW Vendor CDN, which is normal for an upcoming build.

The only difference is that it normally takes up to a month after the previous patch to make its way to Blizzard's online service, and this is under a week since patch 9.1.5 had gone live.

When Does World Of Warcraft Patch 9.2 Release?

Game Director Ion Hazzikostas recently spoke with Venturebeat and said players will hear about patch 9.2 "soon".

With no Blizzcon this year or next, players can expect a small announcement of future content sometime before the end of the year, but we will know more if the PTR gets an update this week.

A realistic release date puts 9.2 releasing early next year in January to February if the game is ready, which gives time for patch 9.1.5 to play out with Legion Timewalking coming around in December for the first time.

WoW Classic: Season of Mastery is also released on the 16th of November and TBC phase 3 is expected in the near future as well.

We recently spoke about the Sylvanas novel being delayed and a possible patch 9.2 release date tied to it as it potentially has spoilers in it, although patch 9.2 could release before the novel as it's the real source material anyway.

We will have more to talk about once the PTR has been made public, and in the meantime, you can catch up on the Chains of Domination Story which will carry on in 9.2.
