to me its just like the content patches, i remember when TOT came out about this time last year, i think it was around February wasnt it? couldn't wait to play it, then i played it, for a few months, cleared it, farmed it, got really bored, so i ended up taking a long vacation from wow, I'd only log in once in awhile, pretty much from April through September when 5.4 came out, and then it was awesome again, 5.4 yay! and then now...4 months later...taking another break from wow cuz so bored with little to do
so i very much hope WOD comes out in june ish, because right now there isn't much else to do in wow, farm mounts/pets/achievements, get a 3rd/4th alt through SOO/Flex, or get a 3rd toon's legendary cape...feels worthless now when wod is "close" if its coming in June...
Also i think we will see wod sooner than we think, because they said they were going to do pre-orders for wod, and when they do that you can get your free 90 so you can have a "few months" to play on your new toon, and even get your legendary cape done in time...cape takes ~2 months ish to complete, so if that was a legitimate goal....
Also look at Reaper of Souls pre-order, it comes out in march, didnt the pre-sale start in january? thats ~4 months prior to release? so if sometime in February they announce pre-order of wod, even though yes its a different game title going by ROS pre-sale timeline, that puts wod at about end of june ish? (4 months....) and if wod beta comes out this month, they'd have a 4 month beta, that's plenty long enough, there isn't huge things they need to test like mop (new class/race, entire new continent etc)
WOD areas are sorta re-vamped outland areas, yes they look almost completely different...but they already had the theme/ideas/visuals rolling from previous content, with MOP they started everything from scratch, unique models, doo-dads, enviroments, everything, and story....WOD is already rich in story/ideas/models and theme, they just have to tailor it and mold it to fit the expansion, where as MOP they had to do everything from ground up...wod's ground work was/is already done in comparison
so to me its pretty much going to be june for WOD...but this is blizzard, they love to mess with our heads and "its done when its done"...either way I'm excited and ready!
Vacation means more time to play.
to the OP, again...really....
i'll just go with the flow and say "i want to believe"
(might be careful, i'd be willing to bet a company that is trying to stress secrecy might 'reveal' some mis-information just to narrow down where leaks are coming from.)
of course being info from your friend who's brothes- wifes- father works for activision blizzard might be far enough down the chain not to be able to pinpoint the source.
Still I cry, tears like pouring rain, Innocent is my lurid pain.
new poster from EU with leaked info, seen it happen before
The best lies contain a grain of truth. Better to take this with a grain of salt.
As to why June makes sense. Sure Summer time is traditionally bad for video game sales. However the timing makes sense. You're looking at the end of the 2nd quarter, which would be padded by the release. Third Quarter will be strong as the remainder of sales, and subs coming back as summer winds down and autumn begins.
such news...! We wont see wc4 for a very long time.Warcraft IV is not planned
Um just one question what the hell does Informations mean?

The D3 team went from like ~80-90 people to over 100 in the year following its release.
The only way the OP would be correct is if they scaled down the D3 again very recently (my knowledge is half a year old) and he didn't know about the period with an increase in development.
