Good morning, sunshine!
You know how, when you went to bed last night, you figured it was going to be a slow news day?
In a move my more cynical and bitter readers will no doubt attribute to a sneaky ploy by Blizzards marketing team to cut Warhammer off at the knees, Blizzard has apparently set a hard release date for the Wrath of the Lich King expansion to be November 13th, 2008.
Hey, I was figuring that was when we were going to see it, I think I even went so far as to say so on a WoW Insider podcast months ago…
I just didn’t expect to see that in the news at WoW Insider first thing this morning.
After all, Blizzard is famous for the “We ship it when it’s done, and we ain’t saying when that will be until we are SURE” philosophy, and I for one love them for that.
But if they are going to buy ad space at WoWhead trumpeting it, I figure they must have some firm plans in place… either that, or their marketing team is still high from snorting lithium after the massive success of the “Recruit a Friend/Multibox a Zhevra” program.
So, eight and a half weeks from now. Two months. PLENTY of time for more adjusting of Talents.
Yes, I counted. Two months. Plenty of time.
