Does anyone here know if HTC is planning to release it soon for the 8x?

Depends on your carrier. GDR3 is out on the International 8x and for ATT.

Anxiously awaiting GDR3 for the Verizon branded 8X. If AT&T approved it this quickly, one can assume VZW will follow suit in a timely, acceptable fashion.

 

One can only hope... :/

If you're device is unlocked/unbranded and not tied to any carrier then you'll get it soonish.  I don't know of a exact timeframe but it has started to rollout and it'll probably be slow.  I upgraded my 8x early from the developer preview program MS started so I have the OS bits, don't know if HTC has any hardware/firmware side updates to follow as well?   Has anyone got any post-GDR3 firmware updates from HTC as well?

Yes GP007 this is the only reason i haven't upgraded from the developer route yet, as i want to see if they release updated firmware/driver updates

I had the rotation lock, X on app switcher and drive style on my 8X yesterday.
It was unbranded from Amazon.

Just to inform people of unlocked HTC 8x, mine has just informed me of an update, i'm guessing its GDR3,
