Joining in the likes of Sony and Google, today Blizzard took to Twitter to announce that the upcoming livestream centered around its yet-to-be-released expansion pack World of Warcraft: Shadowlands has been moved due to the ongoing protests in the U.S. This is one of many online events that have been pushed back of late, including the Guerilla Collective which was also moved for the same reason.
The online presentation was scheduled to be broadcasted live next week Tuesday on June 9, 2020, on Twitch and YouTube. This has been scrapped for now and no new date has been assigned yet.
