Time between release date and announcement?

I think I remember hearing that Blizzard usually announces their release date 2 week or 2 months before they release their games, anyone know when they generally do?

Typically it is about 60 days between the release date announcement and actual release with Blizzard. They have done less, but the shortest I can remember was still more than a month.

They haven't given a set time between the two. WoW Classic had like 2 weeks between announcement and release but other games have literally had months. So it really is just whatever they feel like.

Starcraft 2: release date: July 27th - Announced on May 3rd
Cataclysm: release date: December 7th - Announced on October 12th
Lich King: release date: November 13th - Announced on September 15th

All the last game were announced 8 to 12 weeks before release.
