It's still on track for the 27th.
The remaining Normals and Heroics will be pushed on thursday, friday and monday. If it doesn't happens on those dates, obviously it's pushed a week ahead, we won't really know 100% sure untill we hit thursday, so stay chill and wait and see
However, the patch being RC or not makes no difference, you have to know that when we get the RC, blizzard has had the RC for at least a few weeks. In fact if you want to take things literally, they are currently 2-3 RC builds ahead of us atm.

That said, they've made it clear that the patch, while targeted for the 27th, could always be delayed.At this point, we're just sanity-checking the numbers to make sure that the 25-player scaling is appropriate, since we've tested these encounters a couple of times already, and often on Flexible mode as well. We may spend longer on some fights that have seen more meaningful mechanics changes since the 10-player version, but in general we keep the fights up long enough to see what we need to see, and then shut them down.

Brian Holinka wow's senior pvp designer let slip on twitter "the pvp season end will also mark the date of patch release". And then went on to backpeddle a little.
On Twitter it was stated the release would be "as early as the 27th".
This is as usual what happens when blizzard try to put a date on something way too early.
Things happen during that time, and plans change.
It will be ready when its ready, and I would rather have a more complete and more stable patch than a rushed one.

Now, I didn't put the "Promise" thing on there.
we will know tomorrow, they usually give at least one week notice
I HOPE they delay it another week or two. I could really use some more ToT farm raids to get ready for the new HC content, and the patch doesn't seem completely 'polished' on the PTR just yet.

That's like Eminem saying he's black cause he drew a brown outline on his mirror in the morning, everyone else sees him as white but he seems himself as black and weird example but same crazy concept of rather avoid lol.
I'm confident it will be the 27th and any needed hot fixes in the days after.

The maintenance speaks volumes (eu), the fact that there's possibly another maintenance tomorrow, means 2 consecutive maintenance days.
They generally only do that when a patch is around one week away from launch, and they are probably preparing virtual realms for 5.4 release.
