The World of Warcraft team has announced that the v8.2 "Rise of Azshara" update will be arriving on June 25th. The announcement came with a new video to showcase all of the new features coming with RoA including two new exploration zones, a new raid tier, a "mega" dungeon, improvements to the Heart of Azeroth and Azerite gear systems and much more.

Something sinister churns beneath the waves—the Queen of Tides’ return is imminent! Rise of Azshara, the next major Battle for Azeroth content update goes live June 25 and is packed with many new features, including the addition of Essences to the Heart of Azeroth system; two new zones to explore, Nazjatar and Mechagon; Heritage Armor for tauren and gnomes; new Benthic gear; a raid that takes players into the depths of Azshara’s Eternal Palace; and much more. 

Learn more about Rise of Azshara in our preview or over at the World of Warcraft site.

It's interesting to note that the June 25th release date for RoA comes a mere three days ahead of the Final Fantasy: Shadowbringers early access start. Coincidence...or not?
