Some random web site makes a speculation like this and everyone latches on to it.

There is NO WAY the expansion is being released before Thanksgiving.

You might see 2.4 in April or May, but NOT WoLK.

You won't even see the Cinimatic for the expansion until the WWI in June.

I honestly don't see WotLK releasing until later this year at the earliest, either. It would certainly surprise me quite a bit if it did come out anytime by or before summer.

If WotLK is realesed that early, it'll be the same situation with Naxx and BC being released (which a lot of people are still a little upset over). WotLK shouldn't be out until later this year and I don't see it coming out until after Thanksgiving.

Come on folks! We should really know better by now. As the first commenter said, 2.4 in April or May is probably a safe bet. WOTLK in Nov - Jan is most likely. That will give everyone a chance to try out these other games (if they actually show up on time) and then come back to WoW before the year is over.

WLK is more likely to come out Sept-Nov, during the big rush. not later than Nov.

Yeah, I'm probably a little biased towards Warhammer. I doubt whether it can live up to the hype machine they have going for it.

Ultimately, I'm probably wrong and it will probably release in Q3/4 like everyone expects. All I'm saying is that I wouldn't put it past Blizz to surprise us all with an early release, the way the game has been going lately (compared to the state of the game prior to the last expansion).

Well they made the "misstake" by releasing TBC so "soon" after Naxx, so I dont think they will do the same misstake this time.

I mean the sunwell and so on in 2.4 as mentioned above maybe will be released in april/may, and if so they wont release WLK for some time ahead..

Releasing in spring would undermine everything they're doing with 2.4, insofar as access to better gear and the removal of the remaining attunements goes. They've got to give the casual raiders time to catch up and see the most fun and carefully designed content, or they'll lose people (and if they screw up that way, you better believe the WAR hype engine will draw a lot in).
