Update – 29/04/2021
After this article has been published, I was contacted by Wargaming NA and advised there has been some miscommunication. Tragicloss, send a message that an announcement has made on Reddit in regards to Frontline:
Frontline will make a return in the second half of 2021 as planned initially! Rejoice, you will be able to grind your huge amount of credits while playing with all your Tier VIII Premium tanks.
As a side note, would like to thank Wargaming NA for reaching me with updated information and apologise to our readers about the misinformation shared previously.
The following information is outdated!
Many players keep asking and wondering when is Frontline going to make a return? During the Stream of the Year, in December 2020, Wargaming announced the mode would make a return at the end of 2021, but some new information has been shared that might disrupt those plans!
Frontline needed to be reworked, a few things needed rebalance and the mode in general needed to improve a bit more. The biggest change would be to adapt it to fit Battle Pass, as Steel Hunter and Frontline are modes now modes to help the players grind that huge Battle Pass.
At the moment, Steel Hunter has just finished its second Stage, and the third one is coming in mid-May, meaning that June would be the last Stage for Steel Hunter and next we would get Frontline! Unfortunately, we might not get Frontline at all in 2021!
According to Wargaming NA, Frontline won’t make a return this year as the mode is being reworked. This information goes against previous information shared by Wargaming advising the mode would return later in 2021, but as Wargaming is Wargaming, plans change all the time and loads of things are always delayed.
Frontline is the most liked mode in World of Tanks, players keep asking for it to return as it’s a nice mode to escape Random Battles and at the same time, make a ton of credits.
We will have to wait and see if the mode is returning or not, but if the information is accurate and Frontline doesn’t make a return, I can see a lot of players getting grumpy with that decision. Let us know in the comment section, would you like to see it returned this year even if that meant fewer improvements? Or should Wargaming postpone it for 2022?
