It just occurred to me that I have not heard any new news or future events planned for the start of 2014.

Am I not looking hard enough, or is everything a big secret at this point?

Nothing's been officially announced. Anet's probably still on vacation, so I'd be willing to bet we'll hear specifics next week.

Your guess is as good as mine though.

Our first release in the new year will be on January 21 as we begin our countdown to the end of this story arc. We’ll use the longer break to spend extra time to ensure that our final four releases are as polished and exciting as possible.
Due to the size and scope of the final four story releases in season one, the next round of major features will be bundled together into a large “feature only” release that will come after the first season of the Living World 2014 has finished. Once the story has completed, we’ll go into much greater detail on what’s to follow, but for now we want to focus on making sure our last four episodes shine.

That's basicly all. With all the holidays  I personally don't expect much done untill now. :)

There was some Twitter guy called Lewis B hinting at something major, but that's like taking the ravings of a lunatic on the street as Gospel. I would also like a blog post or something from Arenanet explaining what the rough goal for 2014 is. I won't be playing this game for much longer if something isn't added soon.

What I could handle is a Sorrows Furnace type of update with a large dungeon and many mini questlines within it. Some new skins(not reskins) would be nice, both armor and weapons.
I saw that tweet as well Robsy and I got the feeling that the Christmas meth was in full force :P
I still don't play that much anymore. AC 1/3 the odd meta zerg and chat with guildies. Why is it that I only play GW2 for a few hours a day and I played GW1 ALL day lol. Make the content challenging and stop time gating everything ANET!

Last year's preview for the year was released on the 15th of January iirc, so I hope it won't be long until we hear what's actually in store for us in the coming months.

Definitely will help me decide if I hope beyond hope or move on to greener pastures.

Which is also why I hope it won't just be razzle-dazzle but actually a more detailed roadmap of what to expect.

So far, the items we already know should be on it are:

WvW Ranks being accountbound
New Legendaries + Precursor Crafting
Edge of the Mists map for WvW
PvP Rewards spilling over into PvE and vice versa

Did I miss something? All good features, especially the first, but won't do much to actually make the game better as a whole.

Lewis B writes for tentonhammer. While it is obviously his opinion, it is quite a bit better than "some twitter guy." He is part of the press.

As mentioned by the previous players, the next update is January 21, with a reveal probably a week before.  The Scarlet story line will be wrapped up soon, and that will conclude what they call "season 1" of the Living Story.  We'll see what comes next... expansion, new living story, legalization of crack cocaine?  We don't know, but that's the outline!

Do you know when the ANet staff is officially out of their holiday break? Because usually we'd get the first infos 2 weeks before a patch hits, iirc?

Which would be this Tuesday.

Arenanet is registered as a "standard company," meaning they'd be back in office on Monday, January 6th.  However, the usually give us patch information 1.5 - 1 week before it hits.  The last patch was once of the few to have a really early announcement, for obvious reasons (holiday content, can be ported over from last year).

I'd assume some vague 2014 roadmap blog post next week and the proper patch preview the week after that.

Another "expansions worth of content" probably. I'm almost positive it will be nothing we want/need/asked for like a particle slider or less grind or even skins that aren't 100% tied to insane RNG/gem store. I would love to see some end game, fights like instanced tequatl for example with legit rewards with hard modes as well. Yes, that basically means raids.. now don't rage at me pl0x.

99% sure there will be grind and no content worthy of mention but I would love to be proven wrong.

I can't wait for the bullshit they have in store for us, which I won't even bother playing unless it meets my expectations which if you ask me are pretty fair, yet ANet aims to disappoint so.

E; I didn't bother mentioning pvp because it will be garbage as usual, but I heard there was a leak picture of GvG in the works somewhere. It'll probably suck though. :)

I agree, it will be another LS with Scarlet in which you will be able to get all of the achievements in a day and then sit around and wait for the next installment.

Still wish they would cut back on the LS to 1 time a month and give it more content/things to do that we can not complete in a day.  Along with that I wish they will announce an expansion for later this year.

I still have some faith in ANet, only based on their work in GW1 (yeah, I still have some left over)

Lewis B said it's bigger than an expansion, and with ANet saying Cantha probably isn't coming, cross that off. Maybe Crystal Desert or going farther into the Maguuma Jungle. There is only a small part of their new video that shows 1 aspect of what's to come, and that is, something is going to happen to LA. I assume it's going to be Scarlet trying to take it over, and ultimately dieing.

I don't believe what's to come to be larger than an expansion, but this is what I expect to see:

- LS with Scarlet invading LA
- New skill, weapons, and armor
- New skill set for weapons (meaning they'll have 2 now)
- New area (probably either the space to the left of LA, or the space in between Timberline Falls and Sparkfly Fen) (But I hope it's Crystal desert... atleast)
- Edge of the Mist goes live
- PvP removing glory and doing tinkering with it's system

Doesn't seem like it's alot, for a whole year atleast, but I'm sure there will be more significant things, and less significant things to come with it that I didn't list.

The one thing I'm hoping for is a new class, hopefully they go with Rits, but I think ANet said before the game launched that they won't ever return. :( I didn't list this in what I expect, because I don't expect to see a new class, only wishful thinking.

That flame of wrath (heavy) reskin was horrible.
