Blizzard yesterday added a "upgrade to 5.1" option for WoW to battle.net accounts.  It doesn't do anything yet, but they normally do this shortly before announcing release dates.  Given the normal 2-month lead time that would probably put us in the Sept-Nov. timeframe for MoP to hit.

Heroes of Azeroth, prepare to embark for an exotic new frontier! World of Warcraft®: Mists of Pandaria™ is launching on September 25, 2012 and you can be ready to play when the servers go live by pre-purchasing the game digitally. Plus, for the first time ever, players will have the option to upgrade a pre-purchase to the all-new Digital Deluxe Edition which comes with all of the in-game items from the retail Collector’s Edition, including a World of Warcraft pet and mount, banner sigil and accent for Diablo® III, and Battle.net® portraits for StarCraft® II.

Beginning September 25, 2012, World of Warcraft players around the world will be able to set sail for the long-lost continent of Pandaria, where they’ll explore forgotten dungeons, vanquish risen evils, and play their part in the Horde-Alliance conflict as it reaches a critical breaking point.

Whether you plan to level your existing character to 90 or start fresh with a new pandaren monk, it’s never too early to begin preparing for your adventure. Simply log in to your Battle.net® account, and then pre-purchase Mists of Pandaria. You’ll then be flagged to automatically download the expansion content prior to release so you’ll be ready to go when the game launches.

During the pre-purchase process, you’ll have the option to grab either the Mists of Pandaria Standard Edition for $39.99 USD or the all-new Digital Deluxe edition for $59.99 USD -- or, if you snag the standard edition now and decide you want to upgrade to Digital Deluxe later, you’ll have the opportunity to do so for an additional $20.

The Digital Deluxe edition includes a full digital copy of the expansion, as well as a selection of Pandaria-inspired in-game content for World of Warcraft, Diablo III, and StarCraft II. If you’re looking for even more plunder, a special Mists of Pandaria Collector’s Edition with additional bonus items will also be available exclusively at select retail locations for a suggested retail price of $79.99 USD.

For more details on the September 25, 2012 release of World of Warcraft: Mists of Pandaria, be sure to hit the official press release, or head to our new Mists of Pandaria game page to learn more about the expansion and prepurchase your digital copy.

*When you pre-purchase World of Warcraft: Mists of Pandaria, you will be able to download an encrypted version of the game once it’s available, prior to the game’s release. This content will be unlocked and available

Should be good--glad they are doing it a couple months earlier than they usually do, which is November.

Thanks for the post,

Actually, they've only ever released one XPAC (LK) in November, plus the original game.  BC was January and Cata was December.  But yeah, they do favor those mid-winter months normally.

I think this one has been pushed by the imminent release of Guild Wars 2.  A lot of people don't know it, but the Guild Wars team was originally comprised primarily of disaffected Blizzard people that quit right before WoW went live.  I think they are seen as a pretty big threat, so Blizz hotfooted this realease to try and steal some of their thunder, like they did with LK and Warhammer Online.

Yeah I got an email from a prior GM of Haggis, Dunnar, and he asked if anyone in the guild was playing GW2.  I told him I didn't hear of anyone other than someone at work who mentioned it the other day.

Thanks,
Vlad
