Overwatch 2 PvP fans have a huge treat coming next week

It's been a little while since we last heard from Overwatch 2, but that's all changing soon.

As it turns out, we don't have to wait very long.

WoW: Burning Crusade Classic release date revealed following leaks

WoW: Burning Crusade Classic release date revealed following leaks

Earlier this week, we saw a leak concerning Burning Crusade Classic, the incoming expansion for World of Warcraft Classic. That leak, which centered around ads published the Battle.net launcher that were then quickly pulled, suggested that Burning Crusade Classic's release date would be June 1st. This sparked a lot of debate among the WoW Classic crowd, but now we're getting confirmation that those leaks were indeed accurate.

WoW: The Burning Crusade Classic release date leaked by Blizzard itself

Back at BlizzConline earlier this year, Blizzard confirmed that The Burning Crusade will be coming to World of Warcraft Classic. Thanks to leaks ahead of the ceremony, many WoW Classic players expected that announcement, but even without those leaks, adding The Burning Crusade to WoW Classic was the next logical step once all of the content from vanilla World of Warcraft had been rolled out. Today, we may have an idea of when The Burning Crusade will launch, and it's all thanks to a leak from Blizzard itself.

It's something of the end of an era over at Blizzard today, as Jeff Kaplan has announced that he's leaving the company. Kaplan has been at the company for nearly 20 years, and got his start at Blizzard working as a designer and one of the game directors on World of Warcraft and later its first two expansions, The Burning Crusade and Wrath of the Lich King. Kaplan is perhaps best known, however, as the lead game designer and game director on Overwatch.

Blizzard announced that this weekend Diablo II: Resurrected will be available to play in a limited Technical Alpha experience.

Crash Bandicoot 4 PC version cracked almost as soon as it launched

Crash Bandicoot 4: It's About Time originally launched in 2020 but saw a soft relaunch Friday for next-generation consoles, the Nintendo Switch, and Windows PC. The PC version of the game was exclusively on the Activision-Blizzard Battle.net app and oddly required an online connection to launch the game. PC gamers typically loathe any game that requires an Internet connection to start, despite that the game is entirely off-line in nature.

Diablo 2: Resurrected PC requirements shouldn’t shock you (yet)

PC requirements for the game Diablo 2: Resurrected are not particularly monstrous.

This is, of course, for the most basic and low-resolution version of the game, but still - it's none too wild!
