It seems like Guild Wars 2 won’t be getting any expansions anytime soon.
In an interview with IGN, Game Director Colin Johanson clarified that there were no new expansions planned for Guild Wars 2 as the developers were still working on making the live experience of the game better. This is what he had to say:
Expansions are definitely something that we’ll potentially look at in the future. We don’t have a timetable on it. We’re open to it, but I think our major focus as a studio is making the living world concept as strong as possibly can for the players that we’ve got.
Keep in mind that the original Guild Wars had three expansions released for it.
Regarding an entirely new game of Guild Wars these were his comments:
We want to be able to have teams that are literally developing new, innovative features that change the way that you play our game and grow that experience so it literally feels like you don’t leave Guild Wars 2; Guild Wars 2 becomes Guild Wars 2.5 or Guild Wars 3 and it continues to grow.
The full interview will be released next week. We will have more information as it becomes available.
