We announced that today’s episode, Flashpoint, is the second-to-last episode of the season. Yes, that means what you think it means: there’s one more episode after this, and then straight to the expansion pack.

A lot of you have been wondering about the upcoming release cadence, given that last time around we took a long break from Living World releases to get Heart of Thorns out the door and then to support that expansion after release.

The good news is that this time around we have two separate fully-staffed teams that are both hitting on all cylinders. So our rough plan is to slot the expansion pack into the release cadence as if it were an episode: episode 5, then episode 6, then the expansion pack, then episode 1. But we’ll make some allowance for the fact that shipping an expansion pack is a big deal logistically and will probably take longer than the 2~3 months we normally allocate between episodes.

Mo

 

So 2-3 months until the last episode of the current Living Story would be about July or August, then the next expansion may be out in the first quarter of 2018.  If they rush it, then maybe December 2017.

Should be enough time to clear out my account and personal guild banks to free up space for the new expansion materials.

Oh look at that. The Great Tyrian Adventure just happens to be in line with the release timeframe. That should work out nicely :).

There's some pretty massive spoilers out there, and I'm NOT going to share them here, but I couldn't resist checking them out myself and now I'm REALLY excited for the new expac.  Without knowing the details, I get the impression it'll be a bit of a hybrid of HoT/LS3 content-wise.

 

I've been on a break from GW2 for several months, but I'll have to pick it up again soon.

Thanks :3

My guess is that it will.

ArenaNet needs to do something to keep WvW alive especially with games like Camelot Unchained coming out.

Would be nice if Anet comes out with some new PvP modes like what they had in GW1:
