title iconWorld of Warcraft: The release date for Dragonflight Alpha has been leaked

World of Warcraft's next expansion, Dragonflight, has leaked online prior to an official announcement from Blizzard. According to Blizzard, at present, Dragonflight as a whole will launch before the year ends, with beta and alpha stages to follow before then. Though we have yet to receive details on when each of these launch dates will take place, it appears that we have now received an answer. The alpha for World of Warcraft: Dragonflight is expected to begin later this week on July 14th, according to gaming journalist Jez Corden. Although Corden explained that this date may not be the start of the alpha, since it will require "everything to align." Still, recent changes to Battle.net suggest that the trial period will begin soon for Dragonflight. 

You'll have to sign-up via the official World of Warcraft website in order to participate in this World of Warcraft: Dragonflight alpha. Blizzard will then reach out to individuals to invite them to this testing phase of Dragonflight. Therefore, if you sign up to participate, there's a chance that you might not be selected to join the trial the moment it begins. As invitations begin to be sent out in the future, keep this in mind.  The PC version of World of Warcraft: Dragonflight is currently slated for release before the end of 2022.
