Breathing Room?

June 28, 2008

Just something that caught my eye… Tobold interviewed J. Allen Brack, lead producer on WoW, who was quoted to say in regards to expansion rollout:

“It’s been more than a year than The Burning Crusade came out, and we are not exactly yet happy with where [WotlK] is. The most important thing for Blizzard is that you have the best experience possible when you install it. And whenever Wrath of the Lich King gets to that point, that we feel you will have a great experience, we will release it.”

I’m not going to go all super-analytic on this quote, but I thought I’d toss it out there for those whose greatest worry is Lich King going head-to-head with WAR — this might be a sign that WAR has a bit more breathing room than we once thought.



  1. Could be. But could also just be typical Blizzard mantra of “It’ll be out when it’s finished” that they auto-respond with to any questions about release dates.

    I would be surprised if WoTLK isn’t out by February of ’09.

  2. Don’t hold your breath, it would be a very cunning move by Blizzard to release WotLK in the same week as WAR. It could potentially devastate WAR’s launch, and we all know how important an MMOG launch is.
