We know, we know -- 2010 is an entire year
, and doesn't provide much information as to when we'll be perusing the ruined landscape of Azeroth when World of Warcraft
's next expansion, Cataclysm
, is released. Still, we'd be remiss if we didn't mention the only piece of information yet to surface about the release schedule of the recently announced expansion, via a WoW.com interview
with Blizzard CEO Mike Morhaime. Thus, here it is: It's targeted for a 2010 release
Here's the two observations we can cull from that ambiguous launch announcement -- first, it's not
coming out this year. Second, it's not
coming out in two years. It's coming out somewhere between January 1 and December 31 of next year, it seems. That is, unless it takes Blizzard longer to develop than Morhaime initially thought, in which case, we'll hastily revoke our second observation.
