    When do you think next expansion will be released?

    ICC lasted about 12 months before cata came along.

    Dragon soul lasted about 9 months.

    SoO came out in September 2013. How long do you think it will last? How many months worth of replay value do you think it has ( for example, ICC had much more replay value than Dragon soul and hence kept people playing for longer).

    So far we have had no 'credible' info about next expansion. Even if next expansion is released 6-8 months after blizzcon, that's still more or less dragon soul like schedule? Will SoO hold you for that long?

    When do you think next WoW expansion will be released?

    10th anniversary of World of Warcraft is on November 23 next year, which is also the same day the Warcraft franchise marks its 20th anniversary. It'd make sense to release it on that day. Besides, it is essentially every 2 years for each expansion.

    They said they would make expansion times shorter, nobody is going to put up with SoO for over 9 months when they promised that wouldn't happen again. I expect early 2014, with beta starting right after blizzcon.

    Tier gear should be available during the leveling process. I don't want to have to mingle with these eltitist jerks in LFR to get gear as it is. I pay a sub fee, I shouldn't have to do LFR to get raid gear, much less Flex or Normal.

    It is in Blizzard's interest to get the next expansion out as soon as possible. I imagine that an April-May release would be very likely.

    mid 2014, can't see them pulling the 11 months of ICC again. Loved that place to death, but by the end of wrath all I wanted was death.

    Don't forget even the much beloved TBC had 9 months of BT - SWP wasn't really planned initially as far as I know. I voted April-June 2014, leaning towards April.

    They said that after ICC as well, yet DS happened. Blizzard says a lot of things, don't count on them to always live up to it, especially with release dates/times.

    I'm betting the beta will take around 6 months just like the MoP one, the beta will probably start right after blizzcon which is 8-9th november. 6 months from that would be at the beginning of May, so that's my bet.

    I think people still place too much emphasis on raids. Even in Wrath under 1.5 million out of 12 million actually went to ICC. Then again...there really and indeed is not much once you have levelled SoO to do..and for the non-raiders, pvp and TI won't hold any longetivity, too.

    If Blizzard indeed wants to go for November 2014, they need some kickass 5.5 inbetween

    Unless they are doing the best secret alpha testing in the history of gaming that isn't going to happen. You don't just jump into beta testing and by the time you are anywhere near the point of being at that stage tons of info is out by then. Look at it this way Cata was previewed at Blizzcon and beta testing didn't start for a few more months much much closer to the summer and went live in December.

    i pray for April-June 2014, but expect it will be the next quarter or later :-(

    Tough one, we can only speculate on that, but i would say summer of 2014 with a small, mini like expansion between, something that will introduce you to a new content. So 2 new dungeons with a story line and a mini world boss that would drop hairloom items and you can only access him if you killed Garrosh on normal..

    Spring-summer 2014.

    I don't think they want us doing SoO for another year like they've done past tiers.

    2 new dungeons that will be obsolete almost immediately, when they are moving away from the 5 man format, while also excluding most of the player base. Sure that will happen..... Of course there will be new scenarios or questlines for the last month to kick start 6.0 there is always something like that. Exclusive dungeons though, that sure as hell isn't happening.

    i'm not sure if 2nd and 3rd Q of a year are good for releasing games(ppl got much other things to do than mmo). so I voted for Oct-Dec 2014. And till this time maybe we will get final Zandalari patch or some Timetravel fixing patch.

    The time of the year has nothing to do with when you release the expansion, for how long your already playing subscribers have to wait and the quality of the expansion that is released does...
