The army book is coming out in another week or so after this initial release, supposedly. No one knows why, could have been intentional, could have been a screw up at the printer, no one knows. There has been alleged sightings of it.
But to back up what Mister Adramalech is saying, if 9th ed made all 8th ed army books obsolete, and they come out with the 9th ed BRB first, people wouldn't be able to play the game until their 9th ed army book is released, otherwise, they'd continue playing 8th, or just stop playing WFB, making the concept of invalidating 8th ed army books completely obsolete/detrimental.
but I don't believe GW is price-gouging, they're just setting their prices rather high. (price gouging requires opportunistically forcing customers to pay a higher rate under duress, such as intentionally and unfairly inflating the price of gas generators during a power outage). Note that price gouging is a crime in the USA.
