Mists of Pandaria releases September 25

Mists of Pandaria releases September 25
Hard to argue with the official announcement right on the EU page and the US page: Mists of Pandaria, the fourth expansion for World of Warcraft, will be available in stores and online starting Tuesday, Sept. 25. Pre-orders are live now.

Sept. 25 is a Tuesday, which is one of the preferred days for patching and other fun. The release date is a bit later than many expected, but Blizzard operates under the philosophy of "it's done when it's done," so a later date only means we're getting a product that's been through a lot of testing.

You can upgrade to the standard edition and digital deluxe edition through your account page now.

Update 9:30 p.m. EDT: Added the official press release announcing the release date. You can view it after the break.

The Queue: Let's guess the Mists of Pandaria release date

Welcome back to The Queue, the daily Q&A column in which the WoW Insider team answers your questions about the World of Warcraft. Adam Holisky (@adamholisky), senior editor at WoW Insider, will be your host today.

Let's talk about this for a bit ... We know that Blizzard wants to accelerate patch and expansion release timelines. It's feeling competition from other games, and that's good, and it's in agreement with all of us devoted fans that the game needs more awesome content to play. That's also good.

Given that, I'd like to get the ball rolling on some good old-fashioned release date guesses. My personal guess is May or June of 2012. It'll happen in the summertime, the initial awesomeness of Star Wars and Diablo III will have worn off, and Blizzard will be in a prime position to drop a major expansion to the tried-and-true World of Warcraft.

A quick, late-night WoW Insider staff poll suggests that Mike Sacco, Anne Stickney, and Mat McCurley think July 2012. Daniel Whitcomb and Allie Robert say August or September of 2012. (Allie thinks November/December might also be possible, even though she wants her [expletive deleted] pandas before the world ends.)

But when do you think? Yes, that means a reader poll:
