Wizard101 Producer's Letter Hints at New World


In the August 2017 Producer's Letter, Professor Falmea revealed two new pieces of concept art, of what seems to be the next world expansion in Wizard101.

Although nothing was specifically stated about this forthcoming update, which is expected to be on Test Realm this Fall, we still have to visit three major worlds, according to Old Cob's prophecy:

  • Empyrea;
  • The Hidden Lands;
  • The Broken Shores.

What we know about the next expansion is that one of its areas seems to be called Sycorax Jungle and that the world itself is home to beasts. Now I know this will sound odd to most of you, but this made me think of the description Zander made of his homeworld, Wallaru. And the beasts shown in the concept art fit the theme perfectly.


Sycorax was a powerful witch in William Shakespeare's play "The Tempest", but what does that have to do with the game? Well, we know one of Old Cob's children - the Bat - is still roaming around, so Sycorax could be a reference to the third Warlord we are going to face in the upcoming world.

We know that Scorpion was plotting in Mirage long before we set foot on the sandy world, so it's not too farfetched to think that this third foe has been doing the same and could've named a forest after itself.

Are you excited for the third expansion of the Old Cob arc? Leave a comment below and let me know!
