In his Producer's Letter from the end of May, Dungeons & Dragons Online Executive Producer Robert "Severlin" Ciccolini briefed fans on a few details that his development team would like to bring to the 10-year-old MMO. The tiefling and aasimar races were brought up as being possible but "fairly far into the future."
Today, Serverlin got into a little more detail about DDO's future, this time stretching only to the end of next year, when he dropped this teaser on the DDO forums:
"We are planning out the future of DDO in years, and discussing the possibility of an expansion near the end of 2017. Cool things are coming."
