Warcraft III: Reforged will be launching in January

Blizzard Entertainment has, rightfully so,  been facing a lot of criticism recently over its handling of dealing with Hong Kong, China, and Hearthstone. The event has somewhat tarnished the reputation of the developer with gamers, so it has to take some steps to at least paper over a couple of the cracks if it can’t outright fix them in the short term. Prior to the Hong Kong situation, Blizzard had announced in 2018 it was working on a Warcraft III remaster, and now the company has confirmed the release date.

Warcraft III: Reforged will be available on January 28th, 2020. The game sees Warcraft III: Reign of Chaos and Warcraft III: The Frozen Throne get remastered for the modern day. Blizzard was attempting to release the game before the end of 2018 but stated more time was required to get the final bits of development done so the game would release in a decent state.
