Even after hating on WoD, I still get hyped about new expansions.

So, do we have any speculation or theories on what the new expansion might be about?

The reddit link doesn't show you anything anymore, but a copy was posted to MMOC before its deletion: here

Edit: After reading this more carefully, I have a hard time believing it. I'll be vague so as not to be a spoiler: I thought that Blizzard was not happen with the garrisons. This sounds like they're doing that concept again, implemented in a way that will even further discourage player interaction.

Another edit: the link name reveals the potential title for the next expansion, so I did my best to hide for those who don't want spoilers/idle gossip/hopes dashed/hopes raised.

That maybe-leak has about the right level of detail, and nothing in it strikes me as wishful thinking.  If it's made up, whoever made it up did a good job.

If this is true, it sounds like the garrison tech will be reused for player-owned ships.  I hope the maintenance gameplay aspect is eliminated or greatly reduced.

Which leads to when do people think it will come out?

Edit: Read about it detail is there but the chances of another horde centred expansion does seem unlikely.

This is the first pre-Blizzcon expansion announcement, which means they probably think there is a good chance they will want to start beta before November.  If the beta begins in October, the release could be in the April-May timeframe.  It could be even sooner than that, but it could also be significantly later; delays to their internal timelines happen all the time.

So, basically I am predicting that the expansion will release in the future.  Definitely not in the present or the past.  I'm pretty confident about this one.

I don't remember the timelines of past expansions from announcement to release.  I originally thought Blizz was going to try to push this one out for November but that seems unlikely now.  The question is - are we going to be raiding HFC until... next year?

Traditionally it has been 11-15 months between announcement and release.  Warlords was supposed to be closer to six months, but wound up being twelve.

If the next expansion releases in Q2 2015, I think HFC will still have been the shortest final tier of any expansion.  (Except maybe BC.  BC had an anomalous raid release schedule, with a long gap between Black Temple and Sunwell, partly because they had two full tiers at release.)

Wait, so the name has been announced?  Or are we just going on that random post that may or may not be based in reality.

All the news I'm seeing using The Dark Prophet as the name for new expansion is sourcing the 4chan/reddit posts. It sounds semi-legit but we have nothing official, and probably won't until gamescom.

Hrm, the more sources thing lends credit to it and I seem to recall in the past these rumors have turned out to be fairly accurate.

Time to trade in fel for void!  Xhul'horac is prepped and ready.
