Blizzard trademarks title “The Dark Below,” possible World of Warcraft expansion?

Tuesday, 13th August 2013 17:40 GMT By Phil Owen

As spotted by MMO-Champion, Blizzard has filed a trademark for something called The Dark Below under the category “Computer game software downloadable from a global computer network,” and while that could mean anything, that title does have Warcraft implications.

Per the Manual of Monsters soucebook, in the Warcraft Role-playing Game — the tabletop one — the Dark Below is a hell/underworld, but it seems to have only received a passing mention in the book and thus little info is known about it. But the important thing here is that it is a term associated with Warcraft rather than Diablo.

Despite the fact that Gamescom is next week, I wouldn’t expect any announcement on this there. The last WoW expansion, Mists of Pandaria was announced at Blizzcon 2011, and we have another one of those events happening in November.

    This actually does make sense. The Dark Below will be the place were the players will slay the last Old Ones and reach lvl 95. And the next after this one and probably last addon will be kill Sargeras and reach lvl 100.

    WoW Ends there
    WoW 2 begins.

    happy new year.

    We´ve received invitation from Blizzard for GamesCom Press Conference and title was “We’re making a special announcement that’s sure to capture the attention of the Heavens, Burning Hells and all the shadowed places that lie between.”

    So I think it may be Diablo Expansion
