    Wowhead has changed their front page to indicate a release date of Nov. 13th.

    www.wowhead.com

    No "official" word from Blizzard as of this post, but it seems unlikely that a site as prominent as Wowhead would go to that effort if they didn't know it was true.

    EDIT: Date confirmed by Blizzard.http://www.worldofwarcraft.com/index.xml

    I hope it's ready in time. It still has lots of bugs and finishing work needing to be done from what I am told.

    Curse.com had a story saying that a Blizzard representative confirmed November 13th as the release date.

    lots of bugs is right, but it's in more need of tuning than anything else. two months is a long time though, considering the size of their team.

    True. But I wouldn't get too hopeful for a release on that date. I will not be too surprised if it gets pushed to an early 2009 release.

    I'm also kind of curious as to why Blizzard would choose to release it in November when Christmas is right around the corner. If it had been aimed for a December 20th release Blizzard would have really raked in the cash. Now, some may argue with me that since it's such a popular game it wouldn't make a difference on the date it was sold. However, we can't forget that prices are high around Christmas time and parents would be purchasing it as Christmas gifts for their children who can't afford to buy their own copy.

    I preorded too, but its at my local "The Source" so it's not garunteed that I'll get one. *sadface*. They have a really gay system where they don't order directly from Blizzard, it really depends if their supplier's supplier gets some copies. I'm going to be pissed if I have to resort to going to eBay and buying the collector's edition at a jacked price.
