Looks like I was right about December 7th Cataclysm Release Date Afterall
Reports are swirling around the internet about the December 7 release date is now being formally announced by Blizzard as the official release date for Cataclysm.
Normally, I don’t like to toot my own horn, well maybe sometimes, but I try not to make a habit of it. Anyway, I looked at the calendar and followed my instincts, which led me to believe that December 7 would be the release date. Since then all sorts of rumors kept coming out and one contradicting report after another came out.
It is now official so if you have not pre-ordered Cataclysm you need to get on that right now. Oh crap, that’s me. Yes, I have let myself get a tad bit lazy and haven’t pre-ordered my Cataclysm collector’s edition yet. If the CE’s are all sold out I am going to have a meltdown. I need to do that today.
So here’s a recap of what I said in my original post on September 21:
One thing to keep in mind as far as release dates goes is Blizzcon. Blizzcon 2010 is October 22-23. I wouldn’ t expect anything in the way of Patch 4.0 the week before or after Blizzcon. I think with all the preparation that goes into that event Blizzard will need the week before to deal with nothing but Blizzcon and the week after to take a breath.
According to that schedule I would put the release of Cataclysm at December 7. The date of the attack on Pearl Harbor, and the date of the attack on Azeroth.
