Do we have an estimate release time for Legacy of the void?

#1 Edited by lmephisto (190 posts) -

Now that we know that heart of swarm is coming , i cant actually wait for the final (if its the final) EXPANSION* of the protoss . But so far i havent found/heard anything related to that!

Judging by how long Heart of the Swarm has taken, probably no sooner than 2015.

I don't think Blizzard even has a clue what that is at this point aside from story stuff. Your jumping the gun a bit here. Plus it's Blizzard so don't get your hopes up for any news until the next Blizcon.

2020

And I can't understand why you are so interested in LotV when we don't even know when HotS is coming out. That hyped about the Protoss campaign?

LOL, you're kidding right?

Good god, man! HotS isn't even out yet. Have some sodding patience!

I remember seeing a leaked blizzard memo that said it would come out fall 2015 roughly. Seems like a pretty good estimation. Also had some stuff on there about the next wow expansion and titan.

Heart of the Swarm isn't even in beta yet, supposedly. So, a while.

1. The public beta of HotS hasn't even been annouced.

2. LotV isn't 'dlc'

first off, it's not DLC, secondly, are you seriously wondering why you haven't heard anything about an expansion that nobody is working on because they're just barely getting the first one done?

you can expect 1 year of silence after heart of the swarm releases and then at least another 18 months of dev time for legacy of the void to come out.

@DeF: Yes i am seriously wondering about the last expansion* because when i get the Heart of the swarm i wont be able to wait another so time for my preferred race of the game to be released :)

Oh and when sometimes we say DLC we mean expansion but please don't try to give me a lecture like you are the best professor of games that tries to hold on words and show superiority because that makes you stupid. I think the rest of the people understood my meaning,

My question was more enthusiastic and i was showing my anticipation for this great game.

@lmephisto: I'm just saying you're getting excited far too early for something that doesn't even exist at this point.

And I pointed out the DLC/expansion thing because your post initially made it seem like you might not have realized that these are standalone, full on retail-expansion and just some little mission-pack you just download from battle.net .

@DeF: My bad for the confusion then

Heat Death of the Universe

I would assume that it will be out before Star Craft 3

in the very same vein of accuracy, i'm not sure 'standalone' is the best choice of words there- seeing as HotS will REQUIRE WoL to play. 'feature' or 'full' length is probably more fitting.

Maybe this year (Blizzard time), so I would say summer 2014.
