Forgot to mention that 3.3 will include Icecrown.Also, to everyone saying "Finish this expansion first. UR DOING IT WRONG", the people working on the next expansion are the conceptual planners - thinking about how the storyline will go, what new additions will be made, new classes/races, etc. The people who, you know, have NOTHING to do to work on Wrath right now since it's so close to release and just going through balance/polish/bug fixes now.Just like the people working on patch 3.2 are the dungeon designers, who don't have anything to do since all the dungeons coming out with wrath are essentially done.

That's exactly right. When manufacturing cars, the designers are years ahead of the builders. Same way in game design. It doesn't take much in the way of physical energy to design a game or an expansion. it does take alot of discussion and back and forth, and brainstorming. So yeah, the design team really needs to be looking at the next game or next expansion if it's going to ship on time. Right now is a very appropriate time to be doing that.

The next expansion can wait. Finish what's in front of you first BEFORE you work on what's next. Wrath needs to be complete before you can build upon it.

Naix - did you read any of the previous comments? The people working on the future content (patches and expansion) are not the same people working on finishing up WotLK. Unless you expect the designers to start programming, there's really not much they can do. Different people at blizzard have different skill sets, they are not isomorphic.Reading comprehension FTL...
You didn't even read the post you replied to did you?

Every time Naix posts, baby Jesus puts another bug in WoW.
