The new release date for Shadowlands has been announced almost a month after Blizzard issued a statement to share with the community that they needed a few extra weeks to fine-tune this expansion by improving some aspects of it related to the "end game" of the expansion, that is, with the content for the players once they reach level 60.
Blizzard itself comments that "Since we communicated the decision to delay the game, we have used the time to polish expansion and fine tune max level content, including revamping the combat system and rewards in The Maw and redesigning the Covenant systems so that your choice has immediate impact and long-term goals are more obvious.
The team is now in a good position to get everything else across the finish line by November 24, and as always, we're committed to working with you to improve the game while you play."
Along with the final release date of Shadowlands, the day on which it will begin has also been shared. the pre-launch event that will start on November 11, a day in which the players of Azeroth, be they Horde or Alliance, must prepare for the invasion of the Scourge. We also know that the first raid for Shadowlands will be released on December 9th and it will be Nathira's Castle, a raid that will take players into the heart of Lord Denathrius' lair in Revendreth.
