I guess I lied about the action part, but this image is DEFINITELY of an elf on a bear. So what if I stole it from Phat Loot Phriday? Do you know hard it is to come up with Queue headers?
Why does everyone think that the next WoW expansion is going to be announced at Blizz Con?
I only ask since if I remember correctly (not saying I am) on of the things that everyone said was weird was that very little of ICC (the next raid to be released) was actually talked about (since everyone was so excited about cata). Since we are no where near the last raid of the expansion, should we expect the next expansion announced a lot sooner? Am I misremebering things? Is misremember a word?
Basically, we're expecting an announcement of the next expansion at BlizzCon because by then it'll have been two years since the last expansion announcement. Blizzard announced BC at BlizzCon '05, Wrath at BlizzCon '07, and Cataclysm at BlizzCon '09, so it only makes sense that the upcoming expansion would be announced at this year's.
BlizzCon is pretty much the only major gaming event Blizzard participates in nowadays anyway; if we didn't hear about an expansion at this BlizzCon, then we probably wouldn't hear about it until next BlizzCon, which is an awfully long way away.
