 Collaborative Development Initiative
- Primary article: Collaborative Development Initiative
These changes are part of recent or current CDIs. They do not include specific details nor release dates.
- World versus World:
- Structured PvP:
These changes have been mentioned by ArenaNet, but lack specific details and/or a release date.
- Critical damage will be replaced by Ferocity. This will increase critical damage similar to the way that Precision increases critical chance, instead of simply adding percentages to critical damage as is the current function. It has been stated that after this change, a player with as much Ferocity as possible will have a lower overall critical damage modifier than a player that has as much Critical Damage as possible currently. This has been done to reduce the prevalence of the Berserker meta.
- General content:
- Activities: includes bar brawl, polymock and a shooting range.
- Foes: More variations to creatures. 
- Housing: Guild halls and player housing are not currently being worked on. 
- Structured PvP:
- World versus World:
- Matchup information made available ahead of time is looked into, but complicated.
- Super Adventure Box 
- Each skill slot will have two upgrades 
- Bombs and slingshot work as bundles because their future upgrades will cost more, allowing you to choose cheaper ammo.
- World 3 and World 4.
- Super Adventure Box will be added to the leaderboards.
- There are a total of 30 skills planned throughout the four worlds.
- Super Adventure Boxes might be added to the other cities (See Moto for notes).

- As of May 14th 2013, there are no current plans for an expansion, but the idea has not been ruled out. Further, on January 14th, 2014, Colin Johanson repeated that the company had not decided whether to release an expansion or freely integrate new skills, traits, and similar content into the game.
- An official smartphone application was originally planned, but the company instead released the official Guild Wars 2 API, allowing players to create their own applications for the game.
