Mists of Pandaria Release Date

In October during BlizzCon in California Blizzard announced Mists of Pandaria, their 4th expansion to World of Warcraft. During past expansions Blizzard has announced the expansion title overĀ  a year before the release date and then over the following year they build up hype and then release the game. There is reason to believe, though, that this expansion could come much quicker.

The question on everyone’s mind is when will Mists of Pandaria be released? I’m betting on an July to September release. I’ll explain why I think it will be so soon below.

Mists of Pandaria Release Date

Almost a year ago Blizzard leaked a several-year schedule of planned release dates. Being so far out, their accuracy comes into question. Blizzard has also mentioned repeatedly over the last year that they want to increase the frequency of WoW expansions, they even mentioned 4-5 years ago that they wanted to have an expansion every year. We can say with some confidence that they want to release expansions faster. The leaked schedule put Diablo III being released in Q4 or 2011, which was set back to Q1 of 2012 and may even get pushed into Q2. The schedule also put MoP in Q2 of 2012, which I don’t expect they can hit nor will they want MoP released so close to D3. I think our best bet is to look for MoP slightly before the 2 year anniversary of Cataclysm, which was December of 2010. I’m hopeful we’ll see MoP before the snow starts to fall this winter.

The good news is that you can already pre-order World of Warcraft: Mists of Pandaria. Doing so is the best way to be the first to know the release date.

With most players already making it a regular habit of killing Deathwing, when do you expect to see MoP released?

Tip: Have you ever wondered how players have so many level 85s or how they can level an 85 so quickly? I use and strongy recommend Zygor's in-game leveling addon which will enable you to level in 5 days of played time. You can find a free version of it here.
