Wrath of the Lich King is the second expansion pack for World of Warcraft, a massively multiplayer online role-playing game (MMORPG) released in 2004 by Blizzard Entertainment. It builds upon the story of the original game by introducing the dread Lich King, the ruler of the undead Scourge, as the main antagonist. The expansion also introduced several new features, such as the death knight class and the In-Game Store.
Wrath of the Lich King was very well-received upon its release, with critics praising the introduction of the death knight class and the In-Game Store. It won the "Best Expansion" award at the 2008 Game Developers Choice Awards. Despite this, the expansion's launch was marred by several issues, such as long queues to login and play, server lag, and crashes. These issues were eventually resolved, and Wrath of the Lich King went on to become one of the most successful expansions for World of Warcraft.
It is unclear when World of Warcraft: Wrath of the Lich King Classic will release, as Blizzard Entertainment has not announced a date yet. However, based on the release schedule of other World of Warcraft Classic expansions, it is speculated that Wrath of the Lich King Classic may launch in the fourth quarter of 2021.

This is the million-dollar question that Blizzard Entertainment has been fielding ever since the release of World of Warcraft: Cataclysm. In the intervening years, the company has given different answers at different times, sometimes saying that they have no plans to release a Classic server, while at other times saying that they hear the community’s feedback and are considering it. So, what’s the real story?
The most recent development on this front came at BlizzCon 2018, when WoW Executive Producer J. Allen Brack announced during the opening ceremonies that Blizzard was working on multiple projects, one of which was “classic” servers for World of Warcraft. This was taken by many as a confirmation that Blizzard is finally working on WoW Classic servers, and fans have been eagerly awaiting more news ever since.
However, it’s important to note that Blizzard has not officially announced WoW Classic servers, and they have been very careful not to use the word “Classic” in any official capacity. This is likely due to the fact that the term “Classic” is trademarked by Electronic Arts for their popular MMORPG, “Ultima Online.” As such, Blizzard would likely need to get permission from EA before using the term “Classic” in an official capacity.
Still, the fact that Blizzard is working on “classic” servers for World of Warcraft is all but confirmed at this point. The question now is when they will be released. Unfortunately, Blizzard has been tight-lipped on this front, and we currently have no official release date for WoW Classic servers.
That said, there is one clue that could give us a general timeframe for when WoW Classic servers might be released. In an interview with PC Gamer, WoW Principal Lead Systems Designer Ghostcrawler said that Blizzard wants to release WoW Classic servers “when it’s ready.” He went on to say that Blizzard is currently working on other projects that have priority over WoW Classic, but that they will continue to work on it until it’s ready for release.
Based on this, it seems likely that WoW Classic servers will not be released until sometime after the release of the next World of Warcraft expansion, which is currently scheduled for late 2019. However, it’s possible that Blizzard could surprise us
