    That doesn't matter in the slightest as they stated that they wanted and intend to release expansions faster than they have in the past. That means the 2 year gap between BC and Wrath and between Wrath and Cata mean exactly nothing anymore. They're target is seemingly ~18-20 months. That would put 6.0 in the summer.

    It's been every two years so far. I don't see this changing now, so no. It'll be sometime next year.

    It'll probably be announced at Blizzcon this year in November and even if the beta starts that day you're looking at at least 6 months of beta until the game is released. So the earliest it could be is May of 2014. And if SoO is released in September, 6 months after the release of ToT in March, you're looking at 9 months between SoO and the next expac, which is about how long Dragon Soul was around.

    It will be July of 2014, It will be the Azshara Expansion, I think they will do this so they can finish up the Azeroth storylines, and move onward to whatever planet Sargeras is on, or a planet which will lead into the storyline of Sargeras

    Yeah this is pretty much the timeline I have come up with myself. Late first quarter of 2014 or second quarter of 2014 for the next expansion. We arent even into 5.3 yet (and it wont be out this week either...still not even a release client up on the PTR) so SoO is still a few months away. We will be ringing in the new year while hunting for Garrosh's head.

    If I had to guess. SoO is going to hit PTR very quickly after 5.3 drops. (like 5.2 did when 5.1 dropped)

    That's working on the assumption that they're going to keep the pace they've kept so far.

    If you look at the quote I was replying to, I was saying that there not definitive pattern; the guy said they almost always come out in summer/autumn and I showed otherwise.

    Work on the expansion should have progressed at least somewhat as of now.

    So it might just depend on what they decide to do with the game. Milk it for what it's worth -> quick expansion as people who are subscribers close to expansion launch will most likely buy it anyway. Or invest more money, more time, possibly shuffle some devs in an attempt to turn WoW around -> later expansion with more content and possibly a philosophy quite different from both Cata and MoP, which were disastrous for subscription numbers and performed most likely close to or even worse than their own pessimist forecasts.

    It's not going to be released this year. Expansion cycles are typically 1.5-2 year range, so next spring or summer is probably a likely candidate for release.

    5.2 - March
    5.3 - May
    5.4 - August/September
    MAYBE 5.5 - Novemver
    6.0 - January-March

    Content Tiers usually last around 6 months. End tiers often longer due to delays.

    What you said seems most realistic. January-Feb, maybe - little maybe March.


    Late Q3-Q4 though? Lol, no. The fact that some people are actually suggesting it is making me wonder..

    Thanks for the awesome sig, Lady Amuno.

    I am sure they will not release an expansion this year. I have been in all Closed Betas since WOTLK and I have not been sent my invite to it yet. which means, it's not in beta. Since Beta testing takes a year to complete they would already be in the cycle it they were to release it this year. I do however exspect to get the announcement of both the new MMO and next expansion this year.

    No way there is an expansion this year. That would mean just over a year of MoP and that isn't happening. We still have 3 patches left this expansion besides the pre expansion patch. There also hasn't been any beta, f&a or alpha testing done yet and those 3 stages take almost a year on their own.

    I guarantee you I won't be wrong. People are very unhappy and disgruntled right now with the state of the game... People realizing they'll be stuck perhaps a year still with what they got now, without any major improvements on the horizon to any aspect of the game, will only hasten the subloss. Just this very thread alone shows that people desperately want the next expansion to come rescue them from MoP ...

    There was nothing in the recent conference call about what was on the schedule for the rest of the year that mentioned an expansion for World of Warcraft.

    So that's a no.

    I wouldn't be too surprised to find out that a beta for it will be available soon after Blizzcon though.

    Are people already sick of MoP? Has it even been a year yet?
