Default Could this be a WoW expansion?

I was on another board and saw that a title called Burning Crusade was supposedly registered in the US Patent office by Blizzard recently, so I decided to see if I myself could find it, and sure enough, I did.

http://tess2.uspto.gov/bin/showfiel...tate=ddn390.2.1
(If the link doesn't work, you can find the information by http://www.uspto.gov/, and doing a search of Burning Crusade under "Trademarks Search.")


Here is the information found on that page:

Word Mark THE BURNING CRUSADE

Well, this leaves much speculation. This could be a new game Blizzard will be working on, or it could be an expansion to World of Warcraft. I wonder, though, why Blizzard would be working on an expansion when the main game is still under heavy work and probably will be for the next few months. On the other hand, this is just a patent for the title, so maybe they haven't even started working on the new game yet, and plan that it will take several months to complete, well in time after they get problems associated with WoW fixed and people are well ready for an expansion. I also found this on the official WoW site:

"From the ranks of the powerful Eredar, Sargeras picked two champions to command his demonic army of destruction. Kil'jaeden the Deceiver was chosen to seek out the darkest races in the universe and recruit them into Sargeras' ranks. The second champion, Archimonde the Defiler, was chosen to lead Sargeras' vast armies into battle against any who might resist the Titan's will.

Once Sargeras saw that his armies were amassed and ready to follow his every command, he launched his raging forces into the vastness of the Great Dark. He referred to his growing army as the Burning Legion. To this date, it is still unclear how many worlds they consumed and burned on their unholy Burning Crusade across the universe."

This was found under the "in game support" area on the official WoW site under the title "Who is Sargeras?"

Maybe this suggests that this "Burning Crusade" title is indeed going to somehow be associated with WoW.

Very, very interesting...

Very, very nice work, Ath! This could suggest that they will be releasing an expansion for WoW allowing you to open the dark portal and go to outland!

I, for one, am amazed... I guess that I buy this, as I have searched the trademark office myself and seen it. Once again, very nice work, Ath!

MABYE ITS WARCRAFT 4!?!?! Actually it's gotta be cause it cant' be a prequeal to warcraft 3 then it would just be warcraft 2. So mabye Archamoide has come back and you gotta stop his crusade again.

Aside from expansions to WoW, I don't think Blizzard will be revisiting the Warcraft franchise anytime soon. Like, atleast years at minimum. In my opinion, WoW was like the grand finale to the Warcraft series.

I agree. They finished most of their part of the story. Now it is up to us to decide the fate of the World of Warcraft.

Right. No way there will be anymore WC RTS games. WoW will be the never-ending finale of the WC series .

And yes, this does sound like an expansion! However, if they just recently got the patent, chances are most of the staff doesn't even know about the expansion (the exectives at Blizzard would reserve the name before releasing the name to their employees, to prevent blackmail) yet.

I would expect maybe this holiday season for the expansion...it would be very suprising if it wasn't a holiday season for the expansion's release, and 2 years without an expansion can't be very good for business...with EQII releasing expansions, WoW would be bound to lose many customers without something new like this to spice things up.

Awesome news, but I hope that Blizzard will FINALLY be smart and fix all of the major problems with the original game first before releasing an expansion. Lord knows WoW was released at least a year too soon...the game still isn't anywhere near where it should have been at release, and now (if this is indeed an expansion) there is an expansion planned?

Is my $15/month is going to the hiring or more programmers and designers for an expansion, or is it being used to fix the issues with the current game?

*think, think, think* yea, i guess i'll go with the flow; it has gotta be an expansion. lets do some speculations, do you think that illidan's faction will come in? that is the naga, blood elves, and the dranei.

anyway, its really sad that warcraft's rts will stop, i hope a new franchise will be invented.
