I may be wrong, but there's a stone dwarf in the trailer which would suggest that they will live forever. After all, if their heart does not pump blood the only way for them to die would be in battle. As for them going into hiding, I guess we really can't tell. We know that at least one of them is on the frontline with what seems to be the commander; is it possible that they are literally immortal when facing mortal men and he is the commander's bodyguard?
"Those few individuals who can rightfully claim to have met a Dwarf in their lifetime are rare," suggests that only a handful of people have met a Dwarf, therefore there are probably under one-hundred Dwarves left. I think this is a more viable answer. I don't think the Dwarves will ever be "gone" and it clearly states that they are "finding battles to fight in the deep caverns" therefore not going into hiding. However, as a consequence of their fight with the destroyers their race will never rebuild as they can no longer reproduce. Assuming immortality and infertility, their race will forever remain at the same number which, judging by the lore we have, is a very low number. I may be wrong, though; we shall see.
"The fight between the Dwarves and the Destroyers consumed the Dwarven race. Few lived to return to the surface and tell the tale of their victory—and those who did had been irrevocably altered. No longer made of flesh and bone, no blood pumped through their veins. Instead, they found their bodies composed entirely of stone surrounding nothing but cold, hard earth.
No longer interested in maintaining their solidarity as a race, these last Dwarves scattered across Tyria, finding battles to fight in the deep caverns or making new homes in far-flung hills, ever-watching the borders where caverns emerge into the surface world. Those few individuals who can rightfully claim to have met a Dwarf in their lifetime are rare, and all speak of the strange, driven passion that consumes these few survivors."

The luxons and kurzicks were killed in the Movement of the World between GW1 and 2, so I doubt they'll be playable.

Elona has been overrun by Palawa Joko and Vabbi,Kourna and Istan are all vassal states,Cantha under Emperor Usoku became isolationist, expeling all non humans from within it's borders and also defeated the Kurzicks and Luxons,incorporating them into the nation of Cantha.Cantha is now cut off entirely by the Orrian dragon (Zhaitan?) and it's minions.
