    There you have it.

    A collective /guffaw at all of the people who "knew for sure" it'd take at least til 2021 (Likely longer, or never).

    It will be included free in the sub.

    @Celax, can you explain how reliable is the information that "char names in demo will stay in retail"?
    Tnx.

    I'm super excited that they'll be under the same sub, I was hoping it'd work that way. I think it's the best way to make sure they're both successful.

    I mostly just want to AFK on top of the old Org Bank in Classic, and I wasn't gonna pay extra for that.

    Well, i'm excited too. But what about ppl who don't wanna play current retail wow. I think bliz should give an option for those ppl too, with less sub and only for classic.

    I don't believe they revealed that yet, or if you will simply just get it with a sub. IE, you pay for a sub, and you get the regular current game and classic. That's it, whether you want to play both or not.

    I'm sure more details will come soon.

    Highly unlikely they would bother with any sort of F2P for it, considering such didn't exist in classic.
    Well, you don't get a good feel of it on the Blizzcon demo for much, considering its time lock and level 15-20.

    Arena didn't exist until BC. So those are for sure not going to be there. BGs are not available in the demo.

    It did, it was just time gated. I still have hope.

    classic wow will never pay off its redeveloping and maintaining, so baisically those who pays for regular sub will pay for "classic" players, if there will be some kind of "soft sub" for classic content only.
    pretty much how it works with the taxes - u pay money, someone gets the benefit
    i'd love to read reddit thread about this sub-shit if it by any chances comes true haha!

    I just want to drink milkshake and they're forcing me to buy whole burger menu. I don't want to pay a single penny to BFA shit. Separate sub. would be better for me.

    Maybe go to reddit, then.
    Well, are you saying that you wouldn't be willing to pay the regular monthly sub price for Classic? I definitely would.

    That being said, I have a feeling you will be able to pay for it separate one for less than the regular cost.

    Lol anyone expecting a cheaper sub for classic needs their head examined. Blizzard isn't going to give away anything for free/cheap, especially now that Activision has a piece of the pie.

    I also believe separate sub would be better, however if they manage to maintain and develop classic with one sub money... all the better I guess.

    Highly doubt they will develop a separate payment model for Classic Servers. Most likely just combined subscription for all servers. Wonder if there are plans to make Official Blizzard TBC & WotLK servers.
