Impact to new expansion development

Hello all,
This is mainly a question for the development team. Will the current outbreak of covid-19 have any impact on the potential release of the third gw2 expansion? If so what kind of delay should we expect? Any news is better then no news at all.
Stay safe, stay healthy and I wish all the players and the teams at anet my best wishes during this trying time.

    They're not currently in their office, as posted on the main GW2 website. They're working remotely, who knows how long this will continue. It shouldn't slow it down too hard, they still have a lot of time.

    I rather choose death.

    ArenaNet's hardquarters is in the middle of a major hotspot, so all work will likely be done remotely for weeks if not months.

    The good news is this probably won't have much impact on an online media like GW2. However, there is some concern amoung the player base that they might lose some employees to the outbreak on top of already major losses last year.

    You know what they say, "when it rains it pours"..
