Diablo 3's next expansion is named "Reaper of Souls"?
Well we can definitely say the past few hours have been interesting. After uncovering the trademarking of The Dark Below yesterday, it looks like the teaser for the next Diablo 3 expansion just went live.


According to the official website "Reaper of Souls" is a trademark and linked to Diablo 3, with Gamescom coming up next week it wouldn't be surprising to see the expansion for Diablo 3 announced there.

More importantly, it rules out The Dark Below as the next Diablo 3 expansion and makes things a lot more interesting suddenly.

    If D3's xpac is going to be called reaper of souls and WoW's next xpac, the dark below. then wow's xpac title may be a hint that we'll be fighting Azara and the naga or maybe even the end to wow's old god chapter and that the next xpac after that will be about the legion. Think about it. if the only time we've actually been fighting the BL was in TBC and after that We've been fighting the old gods in some form or another. I for one hope that this will be the ending to us fighting the old gods cause I getting tired of hearing old god this, sha that etc. etc.

    I loved d3, it was awesome except the crap items that drop. I'll be getting the expansion definitely.

    Here's a little tinfoil hat theory with a twist:

    What if The Dark Below is Titan which gets announced in Blizzcon, and the actual WoW expansion is something else that gets trademarked later? Would be nice distraction from Blizzard.

    To all the people saying dark below was for diablo and me calling you stupid I apologize. Not because you aren't stupid, you were being stupid, I just feel bad
    I'm looking forward to seeing the sales numbers for this diablo expansion. Now that they don't have the hype from d2 pushing sales for them I'm going to guess this does horrible in sales. I learned my lesson from d3, I won't be going near that series ever again.

    Interesting considering they said they have pushed back Titan release and moved many of the developers to other games/projects.

    Well this could also be somewhat cross-referenced with the Rift of Aln, which would include Xavius and emerald dream stuff.

    Prediction 1 for the upcoming "WoW: TDB" expansion:

    We will get our Abyssal Maw raid after all.

    And maybe getting azjol quest hub that they regret not completing. When I fall down the hole in the heroic I look around and think man, what a waste. Maybe they'll throw in some emerald dream so we won't be underground the whole time. Outdoor zones to gives us some variety in the dream.

    Might I remind everyone that is hating on a d3 expansion that D2 was quite a bland game before Lord of Destruction and the synergy patch.

    The Dark Below does not sound like a standalone title...

    Also, the Great Sundering was called "The Cataclysm" on your precious wowwiki.com, which also led people to believe that Cataclysm was us going into the Maelstrom to fight Azshara.

    It has been updated since then with quotes and a disclaimer.

    Your're all welcome.

    Malthael? Former angel of wisdom? Angel of death? Sounds right.

    Yeah that was a huge letdown. Of course now everyone is hyping pretty much whatever they want the most in the next expansion and trying really hard to link "The Dark Below" to what they want it to be even though its a huge stretch.

    "The only known mention of the Dark Below in official Warcraft canon sources is in the title of the boss Ozumat <Fiend of the Dark Below>."

    RPG Books are not canon.
