    That's Winter, not late Autumn. :p

    Very good to see they're giving it plenty of time to cook, though.

    Yep.

    Can't say I'm surprised, and it is good to have the date at least. They can take all the time they want if what they end up releasing is worth the money and is properly tested.

    Oh, the irony.
    Announcing the expansion for late spring, and having it released on the first day of summer.

    I think someone already said that as a joke. The joke got real.

    And exactly one week to late for pentecost holidays (in Europe)!

    Well, time to spent outside in the sun, rather than founding religions in a darkened room. Disappointing, but maybe better for me...

    This is the announcement?!? The expansion will be done when it's done so what does it matter announcing a date? How will that change anything? Don't you think it would have been better if they had announced new information about the game?

    Yes, I agree. I must admit to being slightly underwhelmed. :eek:

    Yes. I would rather have had game details, but I didn't really expect this announcement to be huge. They save those things for expos and the media.

    It's exactly the kind of announcement I expected, actually.

    It's about two weeks after I suspected, but in the ball park. I suspected late Spring meant the very end of Spring. It's good for me because I'll have maximum free time then.

    Absolutely fine with me. Gives me a month of Diablo III, uninterrputed, and then plenty of time over the summer for G&K hopefully.
