Warcraft III Reforged has been delayed. The release date was set in 2019 but has been delayed until January 2020. We don’t know anything about a possible refund because of the delay.
Update about refund
I just received an email with a refund link from Blizzard. It would seem that you can refund the game before release.
It is no surprise the game got delayed. The beta is very unstable and has much lag. Still at Blizzcon back in November they said that the game would release in 2019. Also the reforged campaign was scraped. It seems like they underestimated the effort to build the game back in 2018. There is no news about anything else at this moment but we keep you updated. You can read the blizzard post below.
WARCRAFT III: REFORGED RELEASES ON JANUARY 28, 2020
The drums of war thunder once again. Warcraft III: Reforged—the recreation of Warcraft III: Reign of Chaos and Warcraft III: The Frozen Throne—will be available at 3 p.m. PST on January 28, 2020.
Though we’ve been working hard to get Reforged in your hands before the end of the year, as we started approaching the finish line, we felt we’d need a little extra development time for finishing touches. As always, our goal is to honor the high standards you hold us to.
Step Back in Time
Warcraft III: Reforged takes you back to a tumultuous time in Azeroth’s history, when a dark shadow eclipsed a peaceful land, the world trembled before the coming of the Burning Legion, and heroes risked it all to prevent the death of their world.
Soon you’ll be able to relive the definitive real-time strategy classic, with revitalized visuals, an epic single-player campaign spanning over 60 missions, rebalanced online play, a suite of contemporary social and matchmaking features, a vast universe of player-created games, and more.
