    Because Blizzard is an American company.

    They are definitely going all-out for WoD, aren't they?

    I haven't been this excited, since the WotLK cinematic.

    Historically that would make sense (2 months after official announcement)... speculation it could be September 23rd, though. 6.0 on August 12th or 19th... but that is probably wishful thinking The fact that they are giving away beta keys at the event...although that would still be 4-5 weeks of beta access.

    Agreed. I think WoD is going to wind up being one of the best expansions since WotLK, in my humble and accurate opinion.

    Trouble with that is Blizzcon gets in the way of progression unless they release it so the first raid opens the week after Blizzcon.. that might work.

    I'm still going for end of November to tie in with the 10th anniversary.

    If they are giving out beta keys at the event I doubt it will be coming out faster then 2 to 3 months after the announcement, if not longer.

    Physical Collector's Edition will be announced then too. Can't wait to get my pre-order in for that delicious art book!

    1 step closer to WoD! I'll say the release date will be ± October 14th, because MoP, Cataclysm AND WotlK were ALL EXACTLY 2 months after the release-date-announcement!

    Is it strange that I'm more excited for this animated mini-series than a release date? >_>

    couldn't they release it before blizzcon so they could show a liveraid at the con?

    Awwww yeah! Best part of the time period between expansion is the cinematic hype.
