WoW patch 5.0 release date

The MoP pre-patch (patch 5.0) will go live August 28th.. this will also cause the PvP season to end that date, impact your raid lockouts..etc..

Haven’t seen the official announcement..but did find this ‘blue’ post as confirmation:

 Please be aware that with the release of the pre-expansion 5.0.4 patch on Tuesday, August 28, all raid lockouts will be reset. This means that you will not be able to extend a raid lockout beyond the week before the patch release.
