    World of Warcraft; Maybe Sky or Sea themed.

    You can ignore the yellow colours though, this just symbolized the amount of gold you will continue to spend on blizzard products, nothing else.
    Agreed. You'll also notice, if you look VERY closely, that there are four points which do not point N/S/E/W as would a compass, showing that something is "off" about the world. This clearly points to an expansion based on a remake of outlands. The pointiness of them shows that outlands will be redone with 4 added continents, each more strange than the last. The larger size of the icon shows that this will be the largest expansion yet.

    It looks very similar to the Classic icon.

    Bringing back Vanilla servers confirmed.

    Good lord, people. He's not talking about the WoW icon itself. He's talking about what's behind it.



    I agree that it doesn't really mean much, but stop focusing so much on the icon itself.

    Maybe they're going to update that low-res icon in 5.5!

    I agree, the obvious roman numeral "II" behind the icon is much more important.

    Dark below confirmed because it's dark icon.

    Did the classic icon have the Maelstrom? If yes, it's meaningless. If not, then it's obvious what's about to happen.

    The graphic designer didn't just roll some dice to put the Maelstrom there.

    Maybe it's just me, but does anyone else see like a faint blob/shadow on the left side that looks like the Eastern Kingdoms continent?

    Yes, that looks exactly like the vanilla wow icon that has been sitting on my desktop for ~9 years.

    New expansion clearly confirmed.

    Maelstrom confirmed.

    But seriously, we already had a maelstrom expansion, it was called cataclysm. It ended up being the portal to deepholm where Deathwing broke into the world, we flew through it to get to deepholm, it was even where the final battle with deathwing took place.

    Does nobody pay attention?
