As detailed on Wowhead, the leaked information belongs to a BlizzCon press kit and also contains details on the first update for World of Warcraft: Shadowlands, Chains of Dominance. 

The kit was posted early, presumably by mistake, and contained the following synopsis for The Burning Crusade Classic:

Journey through the Dark Portal once again in World of Warcraft: Burning Crusade Classic,” reads Blizzard’s leaked press release. “Originally released in January 2007, The Burning Crusade summoned the heroes of Azeroth to the shattered and fel-scarred realm of Outland to stop an invasion of the demonic Burning Legion.

In 2021, Blizzard Entertainment’s recreation of the first World of Warcraft expansion will give players from around the world a chance to return to Outland as it once was to relive an era of timeless adventure—or experience what awaits beyond the Dark Portal for the first time.”

Also included was the following details regarding Chains of Dominance:

The traitorous Sire Denathrius has been defeated . . . but the power of the Maw still grows. In Chains of Domination™, the upcoming first major content update for World of Warcraft®: Shadowlands, players will delve into new depths of the Jailer’s hopeless domain, seeking to understand the true nature of his malignant plans.

Backed by the renewed might of the four Covenants, the champions of the Horde and the Alliance will take the fight for the Shadowlands to the seat of the Jailer’s power. But the Banished One has a terrible new champion in his service—a cruel instrument of despair conscripted by Sylvanas Windrunner, capable of instilling dread into the hearts of Azeroth’s heroes like no creature of the Shadowlands.

This World of Warcraft content was likely set to be discussed during the online event’s scheduled 30-minute time slot. While the announcement will probably still go ahead as planned, the leak has taken some of the buzz away from any potential WoW news.

Blizzcon is also set to cover games like Hearthstone and Diablo but won’t include any details on Overwatch 2 or Diablo 4, which won’t launch until at least 2022. Blizzcon kicks off February 19th.
