Blizzard Trademarks "Warlords of Draenor" - WoW Expansion
Blizzard just trademarked "Warlords of Draenor" in New Zealand. It was then registered in Australia shortly after.

  • Computer game software, computer game discs, downloadable computer game software, computer game software downloadable from a global computer network, interactive multimedia computer game program; downloadable electronic game software for use on portable electronic devices such as mobile and cellular phones, laptops, handheld computers, and tablet PCs.
  • Entertainment services, namely, providing on-line computer games; providing on-line non-downloadable computer games that may be accessed via a global computer network; providing online news and information in the field of computer games.

It's also worth mentioning that warlordsofdraenor.com was registered a month ago.

I do realize that we had a lot of fun times with trademarks in the past (*cough* Dark Below *cough*) but let's just say that on a personal level I'm pretty confident about this one. I'll leave the speculation up to you guys until Blizzcon.

    Also a good point, going to a never having been shattered Draenor in the present - BUT that implies a whole boatload of lore retcons that would annoy the hell out of me personally. Would basically nullify everything that happened in WoW thusfar.

    Thats incredible! Gives me that original feel of vanilla classic wow box with an orc on it. Grommash Hellscream is badass, I would love for us to get back into time and see the first 2 wars in timeline of Grom and Thrall.

    Any of you noticed how Boub point blank says '' Blizzard trademarks Warlords of Draenor - WoW expansion'' on the title on the front page, when in the past, all 3 of his trademark announcements that were actually expansions, have just been ''Blizzard trademarks Cataclysm'', for example.

    Just adding to the fishyness. I personally have no issue with anything personally because we literally know jackshit about ANYTHING (yes, im looking at you people who say that they're done). Its just really wierd that he says that this is it. When previusly, he just informed us about said trademark, throwing us off?

    Found it weird that Boub went out and said that The Dark Below was Definitely NOT the next expansion..
    It's because it's definitely not, we already know this information.

    Sigh. Can't wait for Friday so all the Dark Below and "Hearthstone Expansion" folks are quieted down. This community is ridiculous sometimes.

    Whether or not its the WoW Xpack or not I'm still wondering why we haven't seen it in the United States Trademark office. Does NZ and Aus required a product TM longer before release than the US?

    So, the one ''WoW expansion leak'' that seemed to be the most fake of all is actually the true WoW expansion? That's interesting...though I still don't see how having Grom as the main antagonist makes any sense what so ever, but we'll see.

    Sounds like a terribly bland name for an expansion...

    kinda like this better than "dark below" especially as one who's main server is.... DRAENOR.

    I really don't think it's going to be time based, since the aspects gave up their powers the bronze dragonflights wouldn't have the power to travel in time.

    He said TDB *might* be the expansion when the name was registered. He has now stated WOD *IS* the expansion. Which means he has been told by his Blizzard contact that this is the next expansion. Which is what happens prior to every Blizzcon when there is a WoW expansion announced. Boub always posts the details here just before Blizzcon.

    Had he said "WOD might be the expansion" then I would be as unsure as you.. but for him to say it IS the expansion means he has been told it is by someone he trusts within the Blizzard setup.

    Yep anything that even remotely respects lore sounds bad am I rite. We should instead bring titles such as The Dark Below, Legion Rising, Return of zomgwtfbbq super mega cool awesomesauce etc...

    Corny titles such as Cataclysm are bad imo. Warlords of Dreanor is probably one of the best titles for an expansion to date. (Except for Legacy of the Void wich still holds the crown)

    I have the feeling this x-pac will get me 110% back in the game again! True warcraft lore? Yes please.

    I am seeing a lot of "Yay, true Warcraft lore!" folk. Seems really silly to me. Not only is Warcraft and ongoing progressing story, but if this is indeed about time-travel, this will be squeezing new stuff in between the old, rather than putting it at the current end, which seems in no way superior to me. Worse, it's likely to bring changes to the established lore. Sounds like a pretty bad idea to me.

    I honestly hope this isn't the WoW expansion, but rather a side game that tells the story of the events on Outland prior to WoW to set up the final expansion. Something along the line of a Tell tale game, or even an RTS.

    That's Warcraft III.

    Was in response to the guy above me. Wouldn't let me quote him for some reason.

    That's how I felt when we found out Star Wars Episode II was called "Attack of the Clones"...

    Hmmm... That IS an interesting theory though, how maybe Warlords of Draenor could be the next Warcaft RTS. They could show us more of the orcs, maybe post WC2 to explain what happened to Alleria and Turalyon. Like, an in-between of WC2 and WC3!
