Blizzard has announced that it has postponed its upcoming World of Warcraft: Shadowlands livestream that was originally planned for June 9. Blizzard says that now is not the right time for the event and will announce more details at a later date.
Blizzard had previously announced that due to the COVID-19 pandemic, it will not be hosting a physical BlizzCon event this year. While the company said that a digital alternative is being planned for early 2021, the company also announced a livestream event to detail more of its upcoming World of Warcraft: shadowland expansion. The original event would feature executive producer John Hight and game director Ion Hazzikostas as they provide a new look into WoW's next expansion.

Set in the world of the dead, one notable feature is that Shadowlands will reduce the level cap to 60 from 120, rather than raise it. IGN will provide an updated date when it is announced.
