Looks like Cataclysm is coming out on December 7, according to mmo-champion. The funny thing about this is that we should have/could have seen this coming a long time ago.
People have been arguing like cats and dogs about when Cataclysm is going to drop. Early November, late November, early December, late December even January has been tossed around as a possibility.
Check this excerpt from a post on The Wowhead Blog, which is quoting the Gnomeregan invasion page on the Blizzard site.
Speaking to a small conglomerate of various Alliance representatives, Mekkatorque pointed out that the time to strike is now. After all, Thermaplugg has eluded death for years to keep his reign over Gnomeregan; and with the fall of the Lich King, the last great threat to the citizens of Azeroth, the chance of any cataclysmic event taking place in the foreseeable future is “less than 12.7%,” Mekkatorque’s leading combat medical advisor Doc Cogspin purported.
As I said, unbelievable. How we missed it is beyond me. Not only has that been out there, but I remember reading it! Nice one Blizzard!
Could they really have known at that time that they were going to release on December 7th? Is it just a Pearl Harbor reference? Conspiracy theorists unite…but not all in one place, they are watching.
