If a new image circulating Reddit points to a possible release date for World of Warcraft's upcoming expansion, Dragonflight. The image appears to be an internal document that shows Dragonflight launching at the end of November, with pre-patch in October.
The image comes to us from Reddit (reported by both Gamespot and WoWHead) is being given some credibility thanks to it circulating just hours before the World of Warcraft: Wrath of the Lich King Classic pre-patch information was announced. The detailed on the image match what Blizzard ended up announcing regarding the MMO's return to the Frozen North, but with all rumors, a grain of salt is necessary here.

However, if the leak turns out to be accurate, we could know now when to expect World of Warcraft: Dragonflight. We know that Blizzard is planning to release the MMO this year, and is currently in its alpha phase. The leaked image shows that players can expect Dragonflight's pre-patch to take place on October 25th, while the full launch of the expansion is slated for November 28th, a month later.
Additionally, the image details dates for some of Activision Blizzard's other titles, including Call of Duty's Warzone 2.0 on November 16th, while pre-purchase of Diablo IV is slated to launch on December 8th, alongside something at this year's The Game Awards.
As with all rumors and leaks of this nature, it's important to take them with a grain of salt. But the timeline does fit, as it's consistent with previous WoW expansion years and their timelines.
