Guild Wars 2: Heart of Thorns Trademark Filled, A New Expansion Incoming?

Rumors have been flying around regarding an upcoming Guild Wars 2 expansion. To fuel speculations, NCSoft has filed a trademark for something called Guild Wars 2: Heart of Thorns. This indicates that we might be close to an announcement for more Guild Wars content.

The filing was spotted by a reddit user, which shows a green colored Guild Wars 2 logo as well. The question is how close are we to an announcement? It is common knowledge that ArenaNet, developer of Guild Wars 2, is going to be a part of PAX South.

Panel will be held under the name “past the point of no return”, by director Colin Johnson and Mike O’Brien the studio president on January 24.

Since the game was released, the main story of this popular MMO has been expanded through a number of “Living World” updates. However, Heart of Thorns seems to be more than that.

Living World’s second season is now available and is dubbed as “point of no return.” This seems to indicate that ArenaNet will soon be discussing future plans for Guild Wars 2 and share some details on what to expect next.

PAX South is going to a brief event that will kick-off on January 23 and will wrap-up on January 25th. We’ll keep you updated to any developments related to the story. Until then, feel free to speculate in the comments below.
