There was some concern over the potential for a bug flood when the expansion drops this fall. GGG said that it’s on top of it: “There’s a lot changing in 3.0.0 so there’s a lot of scope for problems to creep in unless we find them. To deal with this, we’ve expanded our QA team over the years and it’s currently the largest it has ever been. In addition, we’re running a beta for 3.0.0 specifically to find problems before they affect the live realm.”
There was no confirmation regarding a launch date for the expansion, but the team did discuss lengthening the ignore list, trade improvements, the Xbox One launch, and controller support. The team also hinted that there are “a lot more” expansions being planned for the MMO.
“There are a lot more expansions coming, and they’ll likely cover many types of content,” GGG says. “Only one of our five expansions released so far includes a new act for example! We’ll likely continue to make more new acts in the future.”
