    There's just a couple of usefull sentences in this article. Most of the information is exactly the same as the one presented before WoL.

    Late 2011 to early 2012.

    But unlike this year, we have a game to play meanwhile so it won't be that desperate release (hopefully).

    No new info at all.
    Its quite easy to estimate that HOTS would take 16-24 months to completion.
    So I guess either very late 2011 or March 2012.

    "We're going to do some things that are pretty different," Pardo continued, "based on the races themselves. We really want to make each racial experience feel true to the race and feel interesting, so I think there will be some similar stuff and some stuff that really diverges to make sense for the race." He went on to say that players can still expect a branching mission structure in the single-player campaign.
    Why? Please Blizard, take time to note how most of the fan base DID NOT like how the storytelling worked with a branched mission structure...

    Pardo went on to compare the amount of new multiplayer content to what was added for multiplayer in "StarCraft: Brood War."

    @BusinessMonkey: You DO NOT know how the majority of the fan base feels about that. Do not pretend to.



    Rest In Peace, Old Friend.

    Proof? At best, you can only show that the most vocal commenters are those against it (which is to be expected, given that people who like or are simply satisfied by something are less likely to be driven to go online and rant about it). I doubt there is a poll on the topic with anywhere near the millions of voters needed to physically be the majority of the 'fan base'; nor is there one that can prove itself to be an unbiased sampling.

    Back onto the topic however, even if this were true, all it means is that Blizzard should need to reassess their branching mission concept, since there are games out there generally regarded as succeeding in accomplishing this. Simply reverting back to a linear storyline is a step backward and a lazy solution to this so-called 'problem'.
