Where will the next World of Warcraft expansion take place?

Fans speculate on where Blizzard will take us next

The successful launch of World of Warcraft: Legion earlier this year has revived fan interest in Blizzard’s hit MMO. But with the expansion out for months now, players are beginning to finish up with the content available and are starting to look ahead and wonder: What’s next?

While we likely won’t know what’s coming for sure until well into next year, whenever Blizzard chooses to announce World of Warcraft’s seventh expansion, some passionate fans are already speculating. In the video above, from YouTube user Bellular Gaming, a bunch of possibilities are explored.

The most intriguing expansion concept in the video sees World of Warcraft embracing its heady cosmic lore. In this idea, players would explore the history of the god-like Titans and face off against their evil counterparts, the Void Lords.

More likely, perhaps, is an expansion pitting players against N’Zoth, the only one of the evil Old Gods who has yet to be seen in any form in World of Warcraft. Bellular Gaming points out that this expansion could use existing Azeroth zones or could finally see players exploring the opposite side of the planet, an area left as a mystery to this point.

Whatever the case, it’s fun to care enough about World of Warcraft again to get excited about guessing at this stuff. You can read our review of World of Warcraft: Legion here to see why we’re invested again. Let us know what you want the next WoW expansion to focus on in the comments.
