Here’s the news at Gamasutra
Burning Crusade, originally slated for a late-November release, will see a delay until January of 2007
I’d like to take this opportunity to suggest you try EverQuest 2 while you wait. I have high level characters in both games, and it’s my own humble opinion that EQ2 is now a better game. It’s the one I’m still active in, anyway. You can find it for $10 (with a free month) at big game/electronic stores, and there is also free trial download available on the website.
The two games released within a week of each other in 2004, and when they did, WoW was a far better game. This is why I left EQ2 early on and played WoW for a year. Sony has impressed the heck out of me (as a software professional) with how much they have improved the usability, the playability, and expanded on the game content since release. Thus I’m back in EQ2, and WoW is on hold.
‘Better’ is clearly subjective – so all I’m suggesting is that you check it out yourself while you wait. If anyone else has played both considerably, it’d be a lively comment discussion to trade our opinions about the games here.
