A Chinese gaming site has dug something up which is either fanart or the next expansion’s title and logo…
Now, the reason we’re presenting this information as we are is that there is literally no guarantee it’s real in any way, shape or form. Blizzard has been very skilled, historically, at keeping things under wraps for at least a short while. However, it’s interesting to speculate, and a little of what we’re seeing here does ring true. So, first up, this site asserts to have discovered not only the name, but the logo of the next expansion, which would be WoW 6.0. Again, it’s really important to note that this could be complete nonsense, unrelated to the expansion. But here we go.
Now, this isn’t the only thing these guys have found out. They’ve been doing their research in-game into the likelihood of this, and no dedicated WoW player will have missed the regular references to the Burning Legion cropping up from Wrathion and others, and zol.com via the magic of google translate also discusses a new NPC in Felwood that talks about the Legion’s return. I was not able to locate said NPC, partly because google made a hash of the translation, but that doesn’t mean that it’s not there!
So what’s your take on this? Does it look like a fake to you, or might it be real? We’re really not sure here at Gamebreaker. It wouldn’t be hard at all to mock up a WoW logo and freak out some gamers, would it? But on the other hand, there have been so many hints, well, even more obvious than that, that this might be what’s coming up next. Maybe zol.com have actually managed to unearth the next expansion, WoW 6.0, and if they have, what do you think? Are you excited? and where’s the Emerald Dream, anyhow?!
Thanks for the tip, Bradley!
UPDATE: We’ve had confirmation that this is a fake. Are you disappointed?!
