"We've been looking at an expansion for two months now," said executive producer Jeff Hickman in a Joystiq interview. "I don't want anybody to get the wrong idea when I say that--we got four people out of 250 who have been doing pre-production on an expansion."
Hickman was quick to elaborate on the smallness of the current expansion project for the PC MMO. "It is going to be months, months, before that team expands beyond those four or five people and we actually start going 'balls to the walls' working on an expansion," he explained. The remaining 245 staffers are "mostly dedicated to improving the quality of the game as it stands now," promised the producer.
While Hickman wasn't willing to give dates for the delivery of content, he was able to give an optimistic timeline for the production of that content. "Hopefully within the next month or two, we're going to start ... work[ing] on forward-thinking, cool, content system patches that will give free stuff to the players that they'll love."
