release Mists of Pandaria Release Date Speculation

7 posts in this topic

Blizzard just announced that the Mists of Pandaria Opening Cinematic will be premiered on the 16th of August at Gamescom 2012. For Cataclysm, the opening cinematic was released during Blizzcon 2010, a month and a half before the release of the expansion.

Based on this information, the recent start of the raid testing and the general state of the Beta, we believe that Mists of Pandaria will probably be released in either late September (18th or 25th) or early October (2nd or 9th).

Indeed. Without a new major content patch I would expect pandas to come out sooner than other expansions, and it is surely needed as there is not that much new/challenging stuff left to do.

Im assuming that there will be a "pre-expansion" patch that may see the implementation of "link achieves" "mounts" and the new talents. (A little similar to TBC and WotLK).

Hope so anyway, will manage to keep things ticking over

I believe Blizzard have stated that this patch will come in 2 weeks prior to the release of Mists of Pandaria (as opposed to a month prior, as was the case with the other expansions).

Although I am excited about the new expansion, I'm less pleased about the potential release date. Was hoping for a little earlier release date. Purely for selfish reasons of course. I start my final year of University at the end of September so will be mentally busy from then onward!
