Well, look what Arenanet has been teasing...

For extra information, this was posted by WoodenPotatoes today.  The screenshot looks like a beta screenshot, but isn't,  He's confirmed it's from a closed client, and he was allowed to release it by Arenanet's permission.  There is a reason they want to share this.

He also claimed he'd have more new today about upcoming content, including information about a new region.

Woot. \o/

Do you have direct quotes?

Because this:

paints a different picture.

It's a map from beta...WP even says so on twitter.  No idea why he's pressing false information like that.

He just posted a video where he's talking about features that were cut or redesigned years ago, including changes made to the world map. At no point during the video does he attempt to imply that he has forbidden knowledge about a new region being added.

Can anyone post the original link where WP said that this was something having to do with the addition of a new region? I'm rather curious to see what his actual words were.

He didn't make ANY false claims.

I have no idea what the OP is talking about. Scanned WP's twitter and never saw anything that hinted he knew what was coming down the pipe.

The beta photo was a throwback tease, nothing more.

Too soon.   ...can't be accurate / makes no sense as the next move

I know everyone's been clamoring for this .... it's been one of the most requested things next to Cantha access.  But as far as the lore and "divine energy" of regions go, it's too much to take seriously.  They already had Maguuma & the rest of Tarnished coast to finish first even if the Dragon there wasn't going to be defeated first.  They also had the bloodstone and mursaat rumors to put to bed there.... which also dealt with the Seers.

Crystal Deserst is getting too close to Palawa Joko.  MAYBE if they hadn't ♥♥♥♥ed around as badly as they did in Season1 with the stupid steampunk pirates arc that went nowhere, they could have gotten the full Maguuma arc banged out first.   But they didn't and the lore will now suffer for it if they try to "sprawl" out in every direction at once.  We don't even know what's going on in the charr homeland yet and some people wanna start heading towards the Desolation now??  Why?  What's to gain?  Unless Kralk's Minions turned out to be epic Ecto-farming fodder, there's nothing to even foreseeably gain economy-wise  (least of all Silk, which is the thing we need the MOST of right now)
