WAR Comes In First!July 31, 2008
Maybe! Sort of! Yes, dear readers, it’s time for more Mindful Speculation coupled with Dirty Facts!
Just a quick note, really: as one of the big concerns of Warhammer Online fans is that World of Warcraft: Wrath of the Lich King might release head-to-head with our beloved title, it’s of slight relief that Blizzard’s CEO has announced Lich King’s lauch date as Q4 2008 (i.e. October to December).
Now, assuming (and that is dangerous), that the many, many, many rumors and posts and leaked dates regarding WAR’s launch remains true, WAR will be seeing a launch in mid- to late-September, giving the title at least a week or two head start over Lich King — if not more. I guess that’s good, right? Or will players hold off buying WAR knowing that Lich King is right around the corner?
