Posted on April 15, 2008, Chris WoW: Wrath of the Lich King’s Alpha is Underway
While this doesn’t help to peg a release date for the second expansion for World of Warcraft, we know that Wrath of the Lich King is at least in playable form. Blizzard staff and an extremely lucky select few (accompanied by a nice NDA, of course), are and right this very second, as I’m typing this and as you’re reading this and running around, killing things in Northrend that you’ve never even so much as dreamed of.
WoW Insider was able to confirm the news last week through anonymous sources. As I said, this isn’t indicative of the game being a certain number of months away from release. Blizzard rarely releases things too early, so don’t expect to see Wrath of the Lich King rushed out before the holidays.
But that doesn’t mean we can’t hope they do get it out by then.
