    WTF is the Battle.net layer?
    Its hard to tell how early Blizzard will announce their games since SC2 and Diablo 3 were announced several years before they were released because of extended development time. So even though the schedule we saw a while ago with Titan in 2015 would only be 2 years from now it probably wont be released that early. It might go into beta in 2015 and then be in beta for the next 2 years.

    I would guess the WoW Exp, a Diablo 3 Exp, next SC2 Exp teaser and possibly something we dont know about yet. If anything is going on with the movie well hear about that too.

    Cool, can't wait to move away from the pandacrap.

    Looking forward to the next expansion and hopefully it is worth the wait. This time.

    At first I said it's too soon for another expansion announcement but after seeing the OP's post I guess it does make sense. I just thought it would've been too soon for another expansion because of all the stuff Blizzard added in MoP so I figured it wouldn't be for a while until the next announcement for a new expansion. I didn't even get to experience the raids for MoP nor did I get exalted with any of the reputations yet so would be kind of overwhelming if there was.

    ANNOUNCEMENTS
    October 2005: The Burning Crusade
    August 2007: Wrath of the Lich King
    August 2009: Cataclysm
    October 2011: Mists of Pandaria

    RELEASES:
    January 2007: The Burning Crusade
    November 2008: Wrath of the Lich King
    December 2010: Cataclysm
    September 2012: Mists of Pandaria

    Time between ANNOUNCEMENT and RELEASE
    The Burning Crusade: 16 months
    Wrath of the Lich King: 16 months
    Cataclysm: 17 months
    Mists of Pandaria: 12 months
    Average: Around 15 months

    Length of Expansions until next RELEASE
    TBC > WotLK: 23 months
    WotLK > Cata: 26 months
    Cata > MoP: 21 months
    MoP > NEXT: Around 24 months?

    Time Between RELEASE and next ANOUNCEMENT
    TBC release > WotLK announcement: 8 months
    WotLK release > Cata announcement: 10 months
    Cata release > MoP announcement: 11 months
    MoP release > Blizzcon 2013: 12-14 months (longest period yet)

    With the information above, I am 99% sure that Blizzcon 2013 will reveal the next expansion. In fact, it will not be the shortest peroid between release to announcement, as many believe it would be if something was announced this year. No. It would be the longest.



    And just for some side information, NEXT will probably be released OCTOBER 2014.
    Im pretty sure mop will be an 18 month xpac putting it at a march or April release. they have said 18 months is their goal, and the speed at which they are releasing content leads me to believe they will meet that goal.

    Of course they will. Why wouldn't they? They always release what the new expac will be every other year.

    I hope Diablo 3 will get some great expansion. The market for that type of game is there, D3 sold over 10 milion copies but they need to work on longevity, and some interesting end game. Farming Act 3 for some shitty drops (most of legendaries are just vendor trash) got old realy fast, but tbh I still like the game and going back from time to time.

    about that new WoW expack - yeah I thought it was pretty obvious, they always announce it on Blizzcon, so why the hell wouldn't they this year?

    I really really hope the next expansion will be a burning legion themed expansion, if not im probably gonna quit just because I want it so much.
    I mean they hype us so much, so many hints, it has to be burning crusade 2.0 !

    Wrathion tells you the Burning Legion is on its way around the end of the first part of the legendary questline, it's pretty safe to assume it's the next expansion in the absence of any other hints.

    And given that their faster-expansions goal will be targeting a Mar/Apr 2014 release, they'll probably try to beta testing ready to go DURING Blizzcon.

    Oh using bnet as a launch base for your friends and games and achievements is possible. But I would not compare it to Steam. That's like comparing Windows Media Player to iTunes.

    Not happening. Why? Blizz can't keep the lid on that long without someone leaking.
    You don't create "justice" by destroying. That includes buildings, cars, or the careers of the people you want "justice" for.

    I actually wouldn't be surprised if they only had a Blizzcon every 2 years now. I'd guess this years will be a WoW expansion, D3 expansion, and Titan.

    I didn't realize people didn't expect the new expansion to be announced this year. We'll probably have the name for it through a Blizzard copyright sometime this summer, I expect. (And, for the record, I'm betting on a summer 2014 release)
