I thought the last EQ2 Stratics Dev chat they stated that they're going to take longer on this next expansion...longer than any other expansions they have released before... I could be wrong.

That they where going to concentrate on free content and expansions. They also said that they where going to spend more time working on expantion so i would not expect the next one to come out for 9-12 months So that September  to Decemberish... Most likely September.

Well EoF took 9 months itself... another expansion in November of 2007? Can the community last that long?

I am turning to Vanguard which is pretty interesting (diplomacy) despite the poor character graphics and the growing lag ... Until EQ2 shows a new expansion or 'at least' an adventure pack' ... but it seems the game designers took a break, which is well deserved after all <img src="/smilies/8a80c6485cd926be453217d59a84a888.gif" border="0" alt="SMILEY" />

Some place the devs said they are not making any APs for a while and they are going to take mroe time making expansions which is a good thing it will allow them to make quality expansions

Hmm... does anyone remember when EoF was <i>announced</i>?  Assuming that the next expansion runs somewhere close to Faydwer's nine-month development cycle, I'd imagine that we'd be getting the first mention of it in the next month or two.

I really hope SOE anounces something soon. I'm kinda chomping at the bit wondering whats going to be next wondering why we havent had any hints yet. I like the hints that way speculation has a direction instead of just open random speculation. One of my friends said something today that he heard in a pod cast that some eq2 pod casters were invited to the SOE studios or something and they got to see some stuff that was under the NDA but what they did say is that in the next 10-12 months expect to see something from SoE that will blow people away. Granted this is like not first hand (since i my self havent heard the podcast) but that got me excited i hope something big will be out this year that will make lots of people excited. Has anyone heard that podcast? I need to try and look it up. But as far as the the point of the post Odus or Kunark I want Kunark all the way. I had an iksar necro in eq1 and have one in eq2. I love the iksar and i wanat to see my home.

Kunark is the best all time expansion in EQ history, and I think they should make something more interesting rather than these 2 continents....Something that we dont really think about to often..something that was really fogotten in EQ1 OR Odus. I say Odus because i believe that Kunark will need alot of care and it needs some caring developers to create such a land.

They have already announced the next adventure pack. I'm looking to see if I can find the link. Scott Hartman spoke of it also in a recent podcast. The next expansion pack wont be advertised nor will it be scrutinized by the public. When SOE release it, they release it (and bug free he added). O-o

Yeah, I read somewhere that dev said that they were not going to release expansions every 6 months anymore. They actually said that it was a mistake to do that and stopped doing it..
