Blizzard has not announced an official release date for Wrath of the Lich King, but they have given us a few hints. In an interview with Gamasutra, lead producer J. Allen Brack stated that the expansion would be released "in the latter half of 2008." However, he also cautioned that Blizzard's priority is making sure the expansion is high quality, and they won't be rushing it out the door just to meet a release date.
The Blizzard licensing team has also been busy lately, filing for two new Wrath of the Lich King trademarks. One is for a collectible card game based on the expansion, and the other is for a game piece called the "Phased Door Marker." While this doesn't give us a solid release date, it does suggest that Blizzard is making progress on the expansion and is getting closer to a release.
So when can we expect Wrath of the Lich King? Judging by Blizzard's past behavior, it's likely that we'll see a beta test sometime this summer, with a release date sometime in the fall. However, nothing is set in stone yet, so stay tuned for more information as it becomes available.
