So I was wanting to get a thread going on either speculations and/or (later on) a fixed release date for this expansion. I can't wait for it!
Maybe we can keep this thread alive or make it sticky or whatnot so we can all have a 1-stop shop to see the latest announcements.
Also I was wondering if there are any pre-order bonuses coming with the expansion?
Well anyhow, my guess would be 1st quarter 2014 or if really unlucky (lame) 2nd or 3rd. :)
What do you think?
I would be very surprised if its released 1st quarter, i expect the soonest would be (if we are really lucky) 2nd quarter, most likely tho is the 3rd quarter. One can only hope that they want to release it with approximately 2 years from the D3 realease, if thats the case its somewhere around mid may.
I hope the patch will be released in some date close to the AH removal, so about March. And April-May for the expansion. Difficult to guess anyway.
Respecting preorder bonuses, I think that was some exclusive way of gaining players for console version. Maybe you'll get a betakey.
I reckon they'll do it in May again. Probably as an anniversary thing. Especially since the AH closes in march, which i suspect will involve the 1.1 patch. Pre-expansion patches are usually up 1-2 months before an expansion from what i remember of previous Blizzard games.
Pre-order bonuses aren't usually a Blizzard thing. I think in case of the console it was just a gimmick to get PC players to buy the game for a second time.
There will probably be "Deluxe" options though, like they did with Starcraft 2: HotS (which is what i got), so for a little bit extra you get the digital bonuses.
I know some retailers get beta keys, and they sometimes give them away as a pre-order incentive, but that's up to the individual retailers. GAME in the UK did it with HotS for example.
