Expansion after pandaria?

General Discussion
Yes i know pandaria came out only like 4 months ago, but next expansion wil most likely be announced this year. I'm not sure what it will be, most likely not emerald dream, that will probably never happen. What do you think will come next?
My guesses would be emerald dream, going to a new continent in outland, burning legion homeworld, or just something new and unexpected from lore.
Well, I remember they posted a timeline, or business plan showing the dates of all of their products being released in the future and there were two more expansions after Mists of Pandaria.

I wouldn't be surprised if there was an Emerald Dream expansion, it'd make a lot of sense but I have honestly no idea how they'd do it. I also have the same opinion on the last expansion which would probably be in the Nether, or something like that, maybe even Azeroth would be invaded (again) by Burning Legion 3.0.

It's nice to think about but also daunting because you've got to wonder what else is left (continent-wise). Not to mention, in my opinion they'd do the Warcraft franchise a great service if they ended the storyline as a strategy game seeing as they started it with one (Warcraft IV).
I don't think I'll last till then, their expansions are getting increasingly boring sooner.. But yeah. I believe the last expansion will have to do with us killing Sargeras so that'll be the Burning Legion. Probably go to Argus, homeworld of the Draenei?
Judgeing by interactions with that Wrathion fella'...

You can assume the Burning Legion is watching and slowly unbuckling thier fistacuffs.

Do remember, the road map only went to 2015 or 2016, so of course there was only 1 expansion on it after MOP. (It was 2 after Cata)

And i would also think blizzard is planning on a repeat of the mop/d3 offer sub 1 year to wow and get beta access to next gen mmo.

doubt it, they did the annual pass primarily to lock in subscriptions for the end of the quarter.

and you really doubt they would do it again, you are in for a big surprise.
The reason it was successful:
Free Diablo 3 (Diablo fans, and people that heard Diablo games were awesome from friends. Also, FREE GAME!)
Free mount (Mount collectors, and people that like shiny stuff - like me. Lots of people here)
Beta access (WoW lovers that enjoy testing stuff)

If they can't have a similar set up (something valuable (game) free, something shiny free (mount) AND beta access to a game or expac) then it wouldn't really be worth it.
Emerald Dream, I will bet.

what i wrote shame you missed that.
Beta access to next gen MMO != meeting all three criteria. What a shame you missed the other two.

So, it's 4:15am and english isn't my first language, but I can read and comprehend better...
Hmm..
Return of the Burning Legion starring Kil'jaeden the Deciever
Dailycraft 2.0 with new and improved dailys.
Theres a chart out there somewhere that shows us everything Blizzard gots planed.

It shows TWO more expansions fallow MOP.

i did not miss anything you just want to troll and nit pick enough of you ignore feature on.
Ignored because you can't address two of three crucial points about why the Annual Pass was successful.
What a shame you won't see this, because you're a bit of a dolt, aren't you.

WoW X4 (MOP)
WoW X5 (Next one)
No further expansions on the roadmap.

Remember this was leaked, anyway. So it's probably changed. In fact, definitely, since the WoW movie was planned to be released already...
