New World of Warcraft Expansion in the works?

The Blizzard Careers team posted a brand-new job opening today for a World of Warcraft game producer. It is unknown if this job opening is for a new expansion, or to fill a vacant position. Recently, J. Allen Brack stepped down as Executive Producer to take the role of president of Blizzard Entertainment.

Current game producers (that I know of): Michael Bybee (senior), Terri Wellman, Calia Schie (senior), Ray Cobo (Lead), Daniel Stahl (lead), and Marcus Maczynski (senior).

Blizzard Careers is also looking for a new Production Director.
