Blizzard Announces World of Warcraft Expansion Release Date

Finally, the date has been set for the new World of Warcraft expansion! ‘World of Warcraft: Wrath of the Lich King’ is set to be released November 13, 2008.

Mark Morhaime, CEO and cofounder of Blizzard said “We’re Looking forward to launching Wrath of the Lich King, and finally giving World of Warcraft players a chance to take on Arthas and his minions…Until then, we’ll continue to refine and playtest the expansion content to make sure it provides a highly polished experience.”

In the past few months (thanks to friends, and excellent documentary Second Skin) I’ve found myself playing World of Warcraft. The game is for PC/Mac (Blizzard is one of the few companies that release their products multiplatform right away instead of waiting months to port), and is a subscription based MMO.

One thought on “Blizzard Announces World of Warcraft Expansion Release Date

  1. I’m excited that they announced a date, but I feel they may delay it like they did with The Burning Crusade. Delaying it may not be a bad thing either. I’ve been playing in the beta for WotLK and although it looks close to being done they still need to work on some game mechanics. Some classes are a little overpowered right now. Something like that can ruin the players experience. Yes they can fix it with a patch, but I’d rather see it worked out before the game comes out.
