    When will they announce the next expansion?

    Any got an idea on when they will announce the next expansion? I would think Blizzcon but that's still a month away and they have already dropped SoO. I say that because they announced MoP about a month and a half before DS dropped and it wasn't released till September of the next year. This leads me to believe that we will have to wait till around at least August of next year if they want a speedy drop with a decently lengthed Beta, but that leads one to wonder how they plan to keep people interested in WoW when lots of guilds are killing heroic bosses (assuming a guild has garrosh down they are almost guaranteed to have killed the first boss on heroic so far).
    You're a fine example of how gamer communities have become infested with endlessly whining and bitching, arrogant, opinionated, unreasonable, all the way immature, completely delusional, tendentially psychotic, insulting individuals one really doesn't want to be linked with. And playing with you guys is certainly no fun at all. I don't know where this kind of folks spawns from. Must be a nest somewhere ...

    First WoW xpac announcement when the main storyline of the previous xpac is already finished.
    Well done Blizzard.

    im just wondering because assuming it has as much time between announcement and launch as MoP then we are looking at 1 year of SoO

    wouldn't that detract from wow subs rather than add?

    They've announced pretty much every expansion at Blizzcon, so you could say
    it's safe to assume that's when the newest one will be brought to light...

    having said that though, it's just a guess that it'll be announced then so
    we'll just have to wait and see. (i really hope for blizzcon, i wanna know soon!)

    I have to say it's impressive they've been able to keep it secret this time. Now that they haven't created any false expectations by giving the name, the usual disappointment should be smaller.

    Announcement at Blizzcon for sure. I don't see why they would announce the expansion to their biggest and most popular game anywhere else. It will probably be very far in to development by then so there should be a lot of talk about

    Probably Blizzcon. I'd still like to believe however that they have been super productive and have a nice surprise for us between SoO and the next expansion. Alternitavly that the next expansion is well polished internally and roles out quickly. I rather doubt we'll have a year of SoO.

    Because ya know... We didn't have 10.5 months of DS?

    Announcement at Blizzcon 2013, but we'll probably have as long of a wait this time around as we did between Cataclysm and Mists. I see Siege lasting a bit longer than DS though. Plenty of time for alts etc and build up for the next expac. Release June-July 2014.

    Consider this: Wrath released 11/13/08. ICC released 12/8/09. Cataclysm released on 7/12/10. DS is released 11/29/11. MoP released 9/25/12. SoO released 9/10/13.

    If they're really interested and dedicated in bringing us expansions faster then we'll be getting the next expac early summer 2014. We'll have 9-10 months of SoO by then, and it'll be just in time for summer vacations.

    Well if they keep on schedule, they will announce the beta at Blizzcon for a release in April. They said 18 months expansions, so... 6 more months.

    By how fast we had tier so far, I wouldn't be surprised if the expansion is really advanced at this time. They hired people just for that.

    this. expansions are always announced during blizzcon. i believe the opening ceremony where they announce it is free as well so if you just want to see the announcement and dont want the ingame goodies or the other panels you dont have to pay

    At the same time if they were to make a filler tier, it would be of pretty low quality in terms of lore and general setup since it wasn't planned to begin with, and merely thrown together, as well as it would push the release date of the next expansion even further down the line...

    After ICC and Dragon Soul I don't expect SoO to be any different.
