Whether it be through desire or just the idea of wanting to see if something adds up, people try and find hidden meanings and purpose or connections in everything. This even applies to video games, which are propagated by the fact that developers leave “Easter Eggs” in their games for others to find. But at times, it goes deeper than that, and sometimes an odd connection or clue can lead to a truth many didn’t expect. For World of Warcraft, one player seems to have cracked a code in regards to release dates.
Specifically, a Reddit user named Das_Momo did some calculations and found out that ever patch in World of Warcraft: Legion has been released every 77 days since the first launch. Should his logic be accurate, then that means that the next major patch 7.3 would release in August around the 29th if they keep the 77 days going.
“What do you all think? Reading into nothing, or do we now have 7.3 and 7.3.5’s release dates?” he askes his fellow Redditors.
This is fascinating, as while one is nothing, two is a coincidence, three seems to mean a pattern in most cases, and ironically enough, we’re getting close to when Patch 7.2.5 could release, as 77 days after 7.2 was released would equal June 13th, so if that happens there, it could be set in stone as to when 7.3 is coming.
Funnily enough, a lot of the Reddit community are actually behind this idea, some have even stated that this is something that Blizzard would totally do:
“Blizzard has always been obsessed with 7 so maybe you’re right,” notes BizzaroSparkS.
A consistent schedule is always something developers want, but is it true here? It’s honestly hard to say, only time (literally) will tell, especially since we’re apparently a little over a week away from 7.2.5 coming out. What do you think? Does World of Warcraft have a set Patch schedule for Legion?
