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.

  1. Dec. 7 .. a day that will live in infamy! How appropriate to have a Cataclysm on Pearl Harbor Day. Kudos to Blizz for that one!

  2. Actually I tend to lean in the opposite direction. While it doesn’t offend me personally on any serious level, I can understand why some people might be offended at Cataclysm being released on Pearl Harbor day.

    And wow, quotes do not show up well in this theme. Fixed.

  3. Yeah I can see how that might be … BUT … just the fact that it is, makes people mention it and will cause the date to be talked about. That in itself will bring more attention to the holiday than it normally gets. Sadly, most people don’t bother to even realize it’s a special day anymore. Perhaps I’m showing my age by even knowing what it is.
