Wow Expansion for Late 2006

Something that personally surprised me, and may make anyone look at the calendar to double-check if it is April’s Fool. Gamergod acquired an interview with Shadwn Carnes, Blizzard Developer. He slates World of Warcraft Expansion to be ready around late 2006.

Grimwell:

With WoW as a clear success, an expansion is a no-brainer to follow up on the success. What are the plans for this?

Shawn:

An expansion is planned, not in 2005, possibly in late 2006 barring unforeseen chaos. Work is already going on for the expansion, and it’s going good. What to look for?
