World of Warcraft 9.1's release date was kept under wraps far longer than players expected, but Blizzard has finally revealed the update is coming June 29.

World of Warcraft 9.1 Release Date: When is it?

World of Warcraft's latest expansion, Shadowlands, released on Nov. 23 of last year. Players got to reach the max level of 60 and got to take care of Sire Denatrius in Castle Nathria. It’s been nearly seven months since the game released and no major content updates have happened. With that being said, when is the World of Warcraft Shadowlands 9.1 release date?

As the first major content patch of Shadowlands, Patch 9.1: The Chains of Domination, was announced initially at BlizzConline 2021. Here, Blizzard announced that the new update is set to add a range of new content to the title and progress the Shadowlands story. 

A new dungeon and raid will be added to the game, as well as flying will become available for players in the expansion’s first major content update.

The patch dropped on PTR on April 14, which at the time had fans wondering if it would release soon but that has not been the case. Since then, players have been able to test the new quests and of course, the new raid the Sanctum of Domination.

Now, Blizzard has revealed World of Warcraft's 9.1 Update will launch June 29.
