Has an official release date of A Memory of Light been published yet?

I have seen some guesses by some book stores of November 2012, but has Brandon Sanderson or anyone related to Team Jordan made a statement?

    Voting to reopen. It's not a very good question (and wasn't at the time, either) but release date questions are now on-topic. For what it's worth, wikipedia says that it was released on January 8, 2013

Brandon's latest post about this said it will not be out before Summer 2012, and should definitely be out by November. You can keep an eye on his progress here, and he also posts about it on Twitter under @BrandSanderson.


The WoT Wiki says that publication was pushed back from late 2011 to March 2012. However, Sanderson tweeted that March is unlikely and it could be as late as November.


Originally expected to have been published around March 2012, the book was delayed several times, and the hardcover edition was eventually released on January 8, 2013.
