The Goko Dominion Release Prediction Contest!

Think you've got what it takes to be the game release Nostradamus? Then sally forth with a bold prediction as to when Goko Dominion will officially be (re)released to the public!

Rules:
- Only 1 vote per date. The first post with a particular date will be counted, others will not. Popular dates (such as those coinciding with certain game conventions) may get snapped up quickly, so act fast!
- The closest date will win, with ties going to the later date - for example, if it's released 9/20 and people guessed 9/19 and 9/21, 9/21 would win (yes, it's arbitrary, but you're strategy game players and can take that into account).
- Release is defined as when the game is officially released to the public for the second time (the first being in mid-August 2012), regardless of its condition or even if it needs to be taken down yet again. Note: a beta test is not the same thing as a release.
- Prediction must be posted at least 48 hours before any official release announcement is made, and at least 7 days before the actual release.
- You may not edit your prediction - posts that have been modified will not be counted (with the exception of this one ;))
- You may vote "never", but you must also supply a date at which the official cancellation (or going out of business) announcement is made. If "never" does take it, the closest date wins.

What will you win? Pride! A claim to fame! The love and adoration of hundreds! Or, maybe if you go bug theory, a custom title? :)

My prediction: November 20, 2012.

Since the stakes aren't devastatingly high (although, love and adoration are pretty sweet), I'm OK with people gaming the system to some extent. However, point taken, I'll add a couple more rules that should make this a bit less abusable.

We also need to define launch.  How long does it need to be up to count?  If it launches on Tuesday, but isn't stable till Friday - which date is it?

You may not have intended it, but this is now a valid entry - please specify the date at which they announce their cancellation/going out of business.  8)

Are we talking about the next time it's released or the final time it's released?

The next time.

If they don't have a working site by Essen, their licensors are going to start talking about breach of contract.

My prediction: November 20, 2012.
Custom titles should be reserved for proven admins/moderators and people who've actually won something meaningful.
