The "before the storm" patch pre-BC was released on Dec. 5th 2006, and BC itself came out on Jan 17th 2007, the very next month. By that logic, if they release this content patch within 3-4 weeks that would imply Wrath hitting sometime in late October, or early November.I don't think wrath is in a state yet for that soon of a release, so either we'll have longer to play the patch or the patch won't drop until more than 4 weeks from now. I'm surprised they announced this - they must feel good about the state of the beta...

Based on timing of previous development milestones, my math says that the patch should hit on September 9th (keep in mind that this same math predicted the beta would start on July 18, and it did). September 9th is two weeks away, and Blizz often gives two weeks notice. Also, September 9th is two days after the preorder beta of Warhammer Online goes live.At the very latest, they would release it on the 16th, the same day Warhammer Online goes on sale.

How many times am I going to have to say/leak this info...?WoTLK is coming out on the 17th of October in the US and 20th October in Europe. I work at a shipping/importation of electronics and media goods company for a few local stores... this isn't a hoax, trust me!

@ BloodletterI've been arguing with a friend over this for a few days now, he says that the store he works for has a release date of Nov. 3rd. IMO these dates are just an estimate of when its going to come out, to give the stores a bit of time to prepare. There is no actual release date set yet, or we would know about it..
