"Wrath of the Lich King" to be the upcoming WoW expansion

If you're worried about what rating the upcoming expansion for World of Warcraft will carry, fear not, it will apparently be for ages 12 and up in Germany. Wait, you didn't hear Blizzard's announcement of a new expansion (no not the Burning Crusade)? Don't worry, they haven't made one.

According to the German USK ratings board, (it's like the ESRB in Germany) recently posted that the title World of Warcraft: Wrath of the Lich King (GC-Demo) will carry the 12 and up rating. This pretty much blows away the big announcement that we were expecting from Blizzcon, or one of them at least.

If you've played the previous Warcraft titles you'll know that the Lich King is the fallen Prince Arathas who sat upon the Frozen Throne. Likely players will now be able to explore the lands of Northrend. I'm just wondering, does anyone else think it's weird that we'll be talking about The Wrath of the Licking? People are going to think we're all nuts.
