Gen Con, 2014.
Publishing lead times are like what, three months? That gives them nine months to complete the core rules and design and write the books. It's tight -- I suspect some things like artwork are already contracted out -- but doable, since the latest playtest release looks like they are beginning to dial in.
I wouldn't be hurt by a 2015 release, though, if it meant they spent that much more time working out the details.

"The Soul of D&D? It's rolling a natural 20 when you're down to 3 hit points and the cleric's on the floor and you're staring that sunnavabitch bugbear right in his bloodshot eye and holding the line just long enough to let the wizard unleash a fireball at the guards who are on their way, because they're all that stands between you, the Foozle and Glory." - WizarDru

Yup. I am going with sometime before or after Gencon 2014..

I bet they will publish the basic product at GenCon. The Standard rules will come later, maybe at christmas (the big three with the full classes and all the subclasses). So the new "Red Box" from level 1 to level 20 with the 4 basic classes (so warrior and no gladiator or knight) and 4 basic races. Just the classic red box basic stuff with classic monsters. Everything for the beginner to have an iconic and classic D&D experience through 20 levels in one box. This will be the evergreen starter product that will make the most money selling through Wallmart and so on to RPG beginners. Kinda like Monopoly.

About a month before GenCon next year.
Or, just possibly, never. (Though my fear that that might be the case has dropped off pretty dramatically - a year ago, I thought it was a risk; now, not so much.)

Edit: I should note, though, that the rpg.net version of the poll is running almost exactly the same results as here, although the comments are much more pessimistic.

I would bet my money on around Gencon 2014
I am very curious what will come out of WOTC this Gencon, as I have heard almost nothing previewed except the Sundering stuff.
