    AAAGH!!! I want it NOW though!!!! I am getting seriously impatient, which is unusual for me. I think the last time I was so psyched up for a game to be released was back when Quake was announced (the original).

    well the average seems to be about 2 months between the announcement and the date for mmos although WoW only had 19 to 20 days between the announcement and launch

     

    list i put together of date announcements and launch( i know some had pushbacks prior to the dates or terrible launches but whatever):


    Everquest II                Oct. 25, 2004               Nov. 8, 2004

    Planetside                   May 6, 2003                May 20, 2003



     


    Shadowbane                Jan. 9, 2003                 Mar. 25, 2003

    Yep, I would pay attention to Comicon starting Thursday. I would expect an announcement....but I could be wrong. ;)

  • stephen reid has said in the past that one of the things on the way to gettting a release date is preorder details so im guessing this will be the first sign that the train is on the tracks but i don't think we will get the release date at comic con

    If it's polished right now.. I would think that after some stress testing with a beta of some sorts, it would be good to go then no? WoWs next expansion won't be out until the new year I would think. As well.. I would think TOR would want to get their claws into some WoW people while they are quasi bored with Catacysm content. I'm saying release date is announced and it's in November.

     

    Definitely wont be November EA has its 2nd biggest launch of the year in Battlefield 3 in Nov and has enough competition from MW4 never mind throwing its own title into the mix also,

    MW4? are you from the future? :P

     

    The announcement I'm waiting for is the 

    "The combat has been revamped, the ones you have seen previously are just a pre-alpha build that was used as a placeholder for the launch combat system, this new combat system resembles more like Mass Effect"

    :D

    How much WoW could a WoWhater hate, if a WoWhater could hate WoW?
    As much WoW as a WoWhater would, if a WoWhater could hate WoW.

    I hope EA isn't rushing Bioware for an early release.

    The Target audience is very different for those two, and EA has never been worried about competing with its self anyway.

    I can just imagine every follower having a collective stroke if they announced that it was going to be released a month from now.  I know it won't happen but, wow, what a shock it would be.

    With SWG shutting down for good on December 15th and events for SWTOR running as late as November, I think it's safe to say it won't be released until late December at the earliest (perhaps Christmas?).
