    There's only one game that's remotely relevant here and that's Final Fantasy XIV.

I remember we were sitting around waiting for the 8.2 release date, and lo and behold we got it as soon as XIV gave their date for Shadowbringers.

    Mark my words we're gonna find out Shadowlands is dropping "Early December 2020."

    It is my belief when all is said and done we will regard Legion as the beginning of the end.

    Causation / correlation.

    Assuming you're saying causation does not equal correlation (I don't think that is how you type it) this has happened too many times to just be a coincidence.

    What other times do you believe Blizzard have done this?

    And its not that it does not equal, its that it does not imply. You understood it perfectly, there is no need to attack Grammar, which fyi is against the rules of the site.

    2021 is looking more and more likely.
    I don't see the connection between the transmog set and the release date. It is definitely coming this year, most likely mid-November or just after Thanksgiving.

    haha cyberpunk delayed till december, rip wow if its also december

    Honestly, if they were planning for Nov 17th (based on char services end date) then they probably received the best news ever today.

    So you are expecting the PRE-expansion event to continue into the first week or 2 of the new expansion?

    i think taht the plan was for the event to start today but obvious things delayed it

    hits next week then maybe a week gap then part 2

    So the pre expansion event is only 1 week of content?

    Both pre-patch part 2 next week/release on Nov 24, and PPP2 the following week/release Dec 1 have merit in my opinion. December 8 is a possibility too, but it won’t be later than that. You’re absolutely dreaming if you think they aren’t releasing in 2020 whether it’s “done” or not.

    I feel like the Cyberpunk delay might impact the release date.

    - If they think it can realistically be ready for November 17, I could see them forcing it forward to get it out November 17 and take advantage of the window that Cyberpunk vacated. I still can't see November 24 due to Thanksgiving though, and if they really were going to release it November 17, they have to announce it like imminently.
    - That said, with all of the disruption from the fires this week, etc., thinking that they have the nimbleness to change course on a release date on the fly might be unrealistic.
    - If they try and release December 1 or 8, they are now likely going to get destroyed by Cyberpunk in terms of the sales impact. My gut feeling is that they were depending on releasing on one of these 2 dates, giving them a 2 week separation cushion. If that's the earliest they are able to release, I wouldn't be shocked if they just pull the cord and push to 2021 especially if their options are (1) rushing it for November 17 and releasing it in a shit state which would be horrible publicity to release a crappy expac after already delaying it (2) releasing it on top of Cyberpunk, killing hype and sales (3) releasing it right at Christmas and forcing their employees to cancel vacation plans to accommodate - if those are the options, 2021 doesn't sound that bad.
    - I think the events this week (fire) and today with the Cyberpunk delay increased the chances of a 2021 release.
    - Activision quarterly results call is this Thursday. If they are actually going to release in 2020, it wouldn't be surprising to get a release date announcement during or just before this call (to have good news for investors). If they are planning for a second delay, they would probably want to wait until shortly after this call to announce anything, so this could be telling.

    I've always said Blizz should do 2 years of content 1 year maintenance mode

    I don't think that has anything to do with grammar, I read it as Causation divided by Correlation but I know what you meant because that's the only thing anyone ever means when they put those two words together lol

    if something happened one time, it's a coincidence. If something happened too many times, it's a pattern.

    8.2 was dropped 2 days before shadowbringers launched. There are others but I cba googling them.

    6.2 was dropped literally on the same day as another expansion, heavensward.

    BFA prepatch was released 3 days after FFXIV 4.1 release date


    Blizzard always try and target FFXIV patches with their updates whenever possible.

    I mean if a patch or two through the years just happened to line up with the competition releases then yeah I would say huge coincidence

    The fact that it’s a constant thing though is kinda saying that it’s premeditated. Wildstar is the biggest proof imo with the whole “oh wildstar this hardcore old WoW style mmo releases in a few days huh.....WoD alpha!!!” And then wildstar was essentially dead

    This shortage of info from Bliz's side is starting to become annoying. And I am not just talking about a new release date or just a new reassurance of shorts that it will still be in 2020...

    Blizzard has done this throughout WoW's life.

    WoW has a history of releasing content when competitors release theirs.
    It ignores such insignificant forces as time, entropy, and death
