| R* follows no stupid pattern.|
They will announce the exact date when the game is done, or when they are 100% certain that it will be done. They have been messing with release dates too much in the past, they won't take this risk again.
So, it can be whenever.
Wrong. R* must allow themselves the time to market the game. Once the date is anounced, there will undoubtedly be a fairly rigid period of advertising leading up to the game's release. In this sense, they must follow a pattern. Said pattern can be approximated from IV's release.
