[Update #2]: ArenaNet has now detailed the massive class balance update slated for June 28th, 2022.

[Update]: Guild Wars 2's return to Living World Season 1 episodes will be starting on April 19th, 2022.

Guild Wars 2's End of Dragons expansion has arrived only a short while ago, but already it has managed to establish itself as a massive success. Not only has it outsold the previous Path of Fire expansion in a mere few weeks, but Guild Wars 2's playerbase has also more than doubled over the course of the past three years!

So in order to celebrate these achievements, as well as to give everyone something exciting to look forward to, ArenaNet has now revealed their plans for Guild Wars 2's future. These include some expected things like content updates, festivals and bug fixes, but also a rather surprising announcement - there will be a fourth expansion at some point in the future!

The details on the fourth expansion are obviously nonexistent right now given that End of Dragons literally just launched, but what I can tell you is that all of the long lost Living World Season 1 content will be returning as a permanent addition. The first episode, “Flame and Frost,” will launch this April 19th and will give you a chance to acquire a whole bunch of legacy achievements and their accompanying cosmetic rewards.

You might also want to mark March 29th on your calendar as that's when the highly entertaining Super Adventure Festival will arrive alongside a quality-of-life focused update. If you haven't played it, the Super Adventure Festival is essentially a collection of extremely challenging and extremely fun jumping puzzles themed after classic platformers of old. It's by far my favorite Guild Wars 2 festival, so if you have even a tiny bit of time to spare I'd highly recommend checking it out.

The Guild Wars 2 team is also currently working on a brand new wave of changes and improvements to the World vs World game mode, as well as a whole host of balance changes and class reworks in order to sort out the chaos End of Dragons brought with it. This process will take a fair bit of time, however, so feel free to commit to a build as it should be perfectly viable for a fair few months.

You can learn more about these updates, as well as check out the estimated release date for some of them, over at the Guild Wars 2 website. Enjoy, it's pretty exciting stuff!
