ArenaNet confirms no add-ons for MMORPG currently in development, though some could come in the future.

No Guild Wars II expansions are currently in development, game director Colin Johanson explained to IGN, noting this may not always be the case.

"Expansions are definitely something that we'll potentially look at in the future," Johanson said. "We don't have a timetable on it. We're open to it, but I think our major focus as a studio is making the living world concept as strong as possibly can for the players that we've got."

The 2005 original Guild Wars welcomed three expansions: Guild Wars Factions, Guild Wars Nightfall, and Guild Wars Eye of the North.

Asked if ArenaNet would instead consider developing a stand-alone third entry in the series, Johanson said gamers are more likely to see Guild Wars II grow and evolve.

"We want to be able to have teams that are literally developing new, innovative features that change the way that you play our game and grow that experience so it literally feels like you don't leave Guild Wars 2; Guild Wars 2 becomes Guild Wars 2.5 or Guild Wars 3, and it continues to grow," he said.
