There was no date announced at VMworld,

if you want to check out the new features, you can register for the open beta and try it: VMware vSphere Beta Landing Page

I was acutally kinda shocked at how little vSphere 6 was even mentioned at VMware World in San Fran, I think out of all the break out sessions I only heard one small snipit of a new feature / improvement they where working on.  I guess they are keeping tight liped about it.

It will be coming out early next year Q1/Q2, there is no point of talking about it, and also considering that beta version is open to everyone...I guess anyone that is really interested to find out what is in the pipeline should join.
