It's actually heat that kills a battery. In cold states they tend to last longer. I've gotten between 6-8 years on a battery, but I've heard they might only last 3-5 years in a southern state where it gets pretty hot.
And even that isn't a hard and fast rule. I had at least five years on a Bosch battery in my F-250, and it was used when we got the truck, not to mention it already looked a couple of years old.
