Hot on the heels of this release was a teaser for an upcoming event / release / something else - Guild Wars 2: Heart of Thorns. Everyone gets a taste of it with a shiney new cinematic that plays after you beat this chapter of the living world - showcasing a bit of a change in some of the art style their previous cinematics; different but awesome.

Of course there is massive amount of speculation of this being the first full blown expansion of Guild Wars 2 - I’d say its a safe bet based on how much arenanet has teased this both in game (see video below) and on their website. That and, the trademark NCSoft had registered.
Earlier on release day, a very perceptive redditor had spoiled the surprise for everyone, anouncing that NCSoft had registered a trademark for Guild Wars 2: Heart of Thorns. It was met with mass amounts of speculation and excitement. I wish I had seen it in the game first, for a greater surprise.
Many new threads have started on the forum with theorycraft and speculation on what comes next, and how the finale of Living World Season 2, and what is seen in the ending cinematics, plays into what comes next.
What do you guys think GW2: HoT is? Release, expansion, new set of action figures?
