We're going on two years from release; expectations are decidedly high. Is Anet going to continue to expand the gem store or actually decide to expand the game? It's hard to get excited about content that exists only to be a commercial for the new gem store items. GW2 is still the only MMO I would play but I expected more near the two-year mark. Maybe they'll blow us away with a full expansion (or announcement) on the birthday of GW2, but that seems doubtful.
i am on the same boat. With their human resources if they are not planing an expansion.. that game is going to die after 1 year max. 2 years after release they still polish and don't know how to continue the storyline... LS 1.0 was messed up some boring villian spawned from nowhere connected with nothing. Their first new added zone - Southsun Cove was another nonsense. My hope for that game is almost gone. If they mess up with LS 2.0 i am out. I can't belive how fast and with what a wonderful quality gw 1 standalone campainghs came 1 after 1 in a short period. Gw2 is nothing like it. 2 years later we even don't know nothing about expansion or something actually new. gem store gem store gem store - that's all we receive. Megaserver is proof that active player numbers drop every day. So if that megaserver system wasnt added half of the pve servers would be ghost cities.
I wouldn't be surprised if the first stage of the story showcases a reworked Brisban. I expect it but I also expect to move into the Wastes really soon after the first arc of the season 2 story.
only time will tell. Be patient and see how it unfolds.
I already know for a fact that if there is no new map introduced in the first pact of season 2 the forums are gonna get all huffy and declare season 2 to be a dud without seeing how it all comes out..
Yeah and with their "fast" pace if they do not release the zone now at july 1 may be they ll add it in the last chapter 1 year later XD . For veteran players that game is pretty boring atm. Nothing new from months. I am not even playing it . I log in once a month to check for updates and some new skins in cash shop. Ill log in at july 1 to see what is going to happens but if that patch is some prelude like "flame and frost" i ll be really dissapointed. If you remember flame and frost 4 months patches , 4 months wait for 1 dungeon .... for limited time. No thanks

Right, looking at the in-game map it seems that there is a new Level 60 area to the left of Bloodtide Coast, either that, or it is an area I have missed on all of my characters.. believe that is new so it could be a new area that the Living Story Season 2 could take place in. Anyone think it could be new or was it already there and I am just going insane? :3
That's Claw island personal story instanced zone. Don't get your hopes too high. Just wait until july 1 or 2 if they are going to update the game late like some other big patches previously. Every time i've been too excited and overhyped for some new patch in gw2 i 've been dissapointed after that.
I am going to speculate if there is a new zone it is going to be placed next to Brisban wildlands left side or upper left diagonal
