“With the story in the Shadowlands coming to a conclusion, the time is at hand to get a sneak peek at what’s next for the heroes of Azeroth,” Blizzard said last week.
Wowhead reported earlier this month that the next World of Warcraft expansion may be called Dragonflight.
Following an update to the World of Warcraft website, its public source code reveals strings for the Dragonflight Base, Heroic and Epic expansion pre-purchases. It also points to a new, albeit currently inaccessible URL, dragonflight.blizzard.com.

Wowhead also previously datamined several items which appeared as if they could be rewards tied to the new expansion, including a green or emerald dragon mount.
Blizzard is also thought to be working on World of Warcraft Wrath of the Lich King Classic.
And in May, it will offer a preview of Warcraft’s first game built from the ground up for mobile, which is scheduled for release later this year.
