Have a look at Bell of Lost Souls (via Warseer), it isn't good news.
The word from the individual is that Tau are in line for a November 2011 release. Then if GW follows with an Imperial Codex (March/April 2012) then Necrons would be pushed back until July/August 2012.
Potentially another 16 month wait!
One can only hope that these rumors prove unfounded, but as far as the Necron release schedule goes, nothing would surprise me.
We can only hope...nah were screwed but what can we do?

Well, it is for the greater good.

screw politics I JUST WANT TO BURN STUFF DOWN!

Any speculation on release dates that are more than two months out are completely pointless with GW. Even when they give "tentative" dates for releases, which is extremely rare, those usually get pushed back by months or years. Personally, and without anything to back this belief up, I think that Necrons will be soon after Tomb Kings.
GW's models are probably the most amazing models in the world of tabletop gaming. That being said, their business model is absolutely the most evil to the core model I've ever seen. They purposely shroud their codex release dates until the last minute in order to sell as many models from a particular line as possible... even if the new codex is simply going to invalidate a few of them. It's for this reason that I almost never buy any models at full retail price from GW and get most of the ones I need either at huge discount online retailers or eBay second hand.
We could have the honor of being the first 6th edition army.
that honor will probably go to another SM armie. But it would be fun to see necrons in the next starter set
They keep future releases quiet to focus interest on current new releases more than anything, they used to do it differently but it kills the buzz on what they want people to talk about.
Anyone who actually knows the release schedule will have had to sign a NDA and risks being sued for revealing details so don't worry about rumours - you'll have about 2-3 months official notice of a new codex and that's it.
