Windows 8 Release Date

I don’t usually publish news here, but this one was just too good to avoid.

A leaked Microsoft roadmap suggests the release dates of Windows 8 and Windows 9. Here’s the extract.

Windows 8

  • September 2011: Windows 8 Developer Preview
  • January 2012: Windows 8 BETA
  • April 2012: Windows 8 RC
  • June 2012: Windows 8 RTM
  • August 2012: Windows 8 Retail

If you go through the roadmap, you’ll find more information about Windows Phone, Xbox, Internet Explorer and other Microsoft products.

The roadmap also suggests that Windows 9 could be out during November 2014. If this turns out to be true, you can expect the BETA version of Windows 8 during January.
