    Default Times between Expansion Caps

    For all the curious and data fanatics among you,
    I thought it would be a good idea to gather up all the release dates for each expansion cap and to calculate the period between each of them to the next one,
    so yeah, with this thread I wanted to show and share how much time between the expansions (caps) was used or needed to develop them.
    I will count in Months and Days:

    Times between Expansion Caps

    Cap #1 Cap #2 Time
    AL's Release* (11.02.2012) > The Dead City (12.19.2012) 1 Month & 17 Days
    The Dead City (12.19.2012) > The Kraken Isles (02.21.2013) 2 Months & 2 Days
    The Kraken Isles (02.21.2013) > The Battle for Nordr (04.19.2013) 1 Month & 29 Days
    The Battle for Nordr (04.19.2013) > Realm of Shadows: Shuyal (08.29.13) 4 Months & 10 Days
    Realm of Shadows: Shuyal (08.29.13) > The Dragon Enclave (03.13.14) 6 Months & 13 Days
    The Dragon Enclave (03.13.14) > Today (04.05.14) 3 Weeks & 2 Days
    *This is the date of the limited release in Canada and Australia,
    since there were Content Updates on the same day - means the development started then


    And here a little diagram:

    The Average Time an Expansion needs to be developed is 87 days (2 Months, 4 days).

    The Median is 61 Days (2 Months, 1 day).

    The beta was open to anyone in Australia and Canada through google play store on android. I know that people... did find other ways to play during this time but I don't think that there was any beta that I knew of only open to AoAs and GoAs.

    The Devs usually announce a new expansion two or three weeks before.

    STS usually does new expansions in their games every 4-6 months. However, when they first released Arcane Legends, they said they would release the first 4 expansions very quick so that the game would have more content to keep players from getting too bored, but that after those initial expansions they would move to a more regular schedule. So I would expect an expansion every 4-6 months from here on forward.
