If you consider the "Leaked" Timetable, which has been correct so far, MOP is slated for Q2 2012.June 12 IS a Tuesday.Bingo! We have a release date for MOP!

I would not be so hasty to assume anything in regards to book release dates and how they relate to game release dates. Two different departments.

The 12th wouldn't make sense for the xpac release. Obviously, this book is playing right into the MoP storyline of a horde/alliance war... very similar to the way the Shattering played into Cataclysm. The Shattering was released what... a week before 4.0 dropped? June 12th (or more likely June 19th) would be a realistic drop date for patch 5.0 instead. And that would put beta... ?

And MoP launch in July of course.

Anne,Would they spoil the MOP release by putting the book out first?Also, Blizzard has said they want expansions every year and a half. June fits.

It's more of a matter of publishing dates not being set in stone. Amazon's got a release date, yes -- but that release date isn't a final release date. It could change. I've seen them change before (most recently with Wolfheart).

BTW Anne, I am a big fan of your work here, and on podcasts!

Please tell me you aren't talking about that image with the timeline spelled out in a letter.That's fake. It's been proven. Remove the "?tags" at the end of the address, and you see the correct upload date.The guy uploaded a letter with blank parts. Then a day after BlizzCon, he uploaded images with all of the info and they were put into the blank parts. It's been edited so it looks like it was uploaded months ago, when it was last edited right after BlizzCon.

In case you weten't aware, most media companies have gone for the Tuesday release thing for several years, be it movies, games, cds, or books. Unless it's somethong they want to market as a Special Snowflake, everythong releases on Tuesday. The fact that Blizz also does maintainence on Tuesdays has little to do with it.

Stormrage was released about 9 months before the release of cataclysm."February 23, 2010"If we go by that time frame MoP wouldn't come out until february-march of 2013. One would hope it would not take that long to get MoP out.
