Amazon has a release date of "This title will be released on August 28, 2012."...anyone else think this is just too far away?

Sounds just right, actually.Given that the MoP beta just started, and the Shattering was released two months before Cataclysm's launch... an October release sounds right for MoP.

I wouldn't be shocked if that's around when Mists is released as well. Despite some people now starting to guess June/July as being the release date, Blizzard has no reason to release the game three months after the beta even if that's the way it's been. August or September sounds close enough / a ways off enough for me.

Nah, they've got to have enough lead time for everything important to happen offscreen so Alliance can come back to the aftermath wondering WTH just happened. Granted, it would be nice if this weren't the case, but I'm not holding my breath.

I don't think it'll be THAT long. Every prior beta for WoW expansions has lasted about 4-5 months (including Cataclysm, which needed a LOT more work than MoP does IIRC), which puts it on schedule for a late summer release...right around the time of the book.Also, I don't think that it's a "law" that Blizzard times the book releases a fixed amount of time before/after an expansion. They probably just release it when they feel is appropriate, so it could feasibly be released after MoP. In other words, book release date =/= when the expansion will launch.
