We've finally got an official release date: Cataclysm will launch December 7th! At long last!
In other news, people who thought WoW was declining are wrong; we just hit a new peak at TWELVE MILLION players. This new milestone was met mainly by two things: players returning psyched for Cataclysm, and the launch of WotLK in China. Good to see that the game we all love is still growing!
