For the record:
  • Starcraft 2 was announced at the WWI in Korea in 2007. (Because all three games were effectively announced at the same time, the expansions don't have specific announcement events after this.)
  • Diablo 3 was announced at the WWI in Paris in 2008. Reaper of Souls was announced at Gamescom in 2013.
  • Warcraft expansions have exclusively been announced at BlizzCon, in '05, '07, '09, '11, and '13.
  • Hearthstone was announced at PAX East in 2013. Curse of Naxxramas was announced at PAX East 2014, and Goblins & Gnomes was announced at BlizzCon '14. Blackrock Mountain was announced at PAX East 2015.

So with that in mind, the pattern appears to be the following:
  • Major Starcraft announcements will likely happen in Korea.
  • Major World of Warcraft announcements will likely happen at BlizzCon.
  • Major Diablo announcements will likely happen in Europe.
  • Major Hearthstone announcements will likely alternate between PAX East and BlizzCon.

Something else that's notable with this pattern is that WoW expansions happen in odd years. BlizzCons '08 and '10 didn't have major announcements (they announced Wizard and Demon Hunter as additional classes for D3), there was no BlizzCon in '12, and 14 focused on Overwatch, GvG, and the Legacy of the Void cinematic reveal. So one could suspect that major Overwatch releases might end up being prime announcement fodder in even-number years.

So, interesting/weird detail... when you're in Kilrogg's death-realm-thing and see the vision of the future with Khadgar, he's in.. Sylvanas' throne room? It's labelled the 'royal quarter', and it's clearly Sylvanas' throne room with forsaken barricades erected around. I don't see Sylvanas anywhere, just Khadgar and a shit-ton of demons.

Foreshadowing that unless we take out Sylvanas as soon as possible we'll all die because of her?

No. Our last stand against the AU Legion will take place in Lordaeron, if we fail to defeat the Feliron Horde.

Blizzard wanted to use a spooky room for the vision.

If there is anything to learn from velen, magni, and garrosh dying is that their replacement is much, much, much worse than them.

Oh and carine.

Actually, it makes me wonder if its foreshadowing whatever plot turn is going to come at the end of WoD, namely how theyre going to reconcile the AU and MU link. It could be that this is our fate if the two universes stay linked, thus forcing Khadgar or whomever to sever the link and forcibly change fate. Or it could mean that severing the link somehow dooms MU Azeroth, forcing us to pull AU Draenor into the MU.

Having is be Sylvanass throne room kinda eliminates it being AU Azeroth. The Forsaken wouldnt exist in the altered timeline if Nerzhul never became the Lich King.

I can't disagree with that. However, I am slightly in doubt in Blizz's ability to grow a pair to decide to kill her off, to overcome the hateboner of her fans and to write a credible story meanwhile. Unless they manage to do all three combined, any faction leader including Sylvanas should stay not dead/ousted.

Otherwise, no killings factions leaders pleases.

Why do people presume the AU and MU's link will be broken in the first place? There's no real need for it, if they just want to stop the AU from becoming relevant again they can just not have visitors from there. It's not like every expansion from now on MUST be on Draenor just because it's there; that'd be like basing another add on on Outland. Or revamping Classic zones; don't be silly, guys.

There are plenty of spookier rooms in the Hellfire Citadel raid they could have used, which would have made a lot more sense within the context of what Khadgar is saying.

Is that a Horde raid? Maybe the area is faction dependent? It would explain the "King of Stormwind Anduin" npc that was datamined.

Horde, yes. Not sure what the Alliance version is.

Not sure why the Alliance would get Khadgar and Anduin and the Horde would just get Khadgar, though. Unless Anduin's corpse is just in the throne room or something.

Just found footage of an Alliance player doing the fight. They do go to the Stormwind Keep. No idea why the Horde go to the Undercity instead of Grommash Hold, but it is what it is.

No Anduin to be seen. Maybe he's a mythic mechanic or something.

To be quite fair, I'm in the "Ehhh..." camp about GamesCon. If WoD didn't have its final raid tier in development right now, I would of course be in the usual BlizzCon camp, expecting GamesCon to be Diablo 3 or Hearthstone. I know we're all cynical about the time between expansions and Blizzard's ability to actually deliver on a shorter time span, but the only way I see them avoiding it this time is announcing it at GamesCon.

I'm actually more surprised they didn't move BlizzCon forward. Wasn't it usually in September until a couple of years ago?

The other option is announcing it at GamesCon, but with very barebones information; a trailer, a setting, perhaps a couple of announcement features, but basically black out all DETAIL until BlizzCon.
