A day after learning that the HTC One Developer Edition would be skipping the Android 4.2 update and go straight to Android 4.3, HTC’s president of global sales has now revealed that the company is working to release the same update for the HTC Droid DNA and all HTC One variants in the US and Canada before the end of September. It seems the only thing standing in the way of your HTC One or Droid DNA from receiving the news software is carrier certification.
Lots of questions re 4.3 release for One. We r wrking hard (needs cert) to release 4.3 across all US, Canada skus by end Sept. DNA as well.

While HTC has gotten a lot of bad press for not updating its phones in a timely manner, a jump from Android 4.1 to 4.3 only two months after the update was released from Google should help HTC regain some favor among the more devout Android enthusiasts.
