Question regarding the explored/unexplored regions of the world

Is the full extent of the Guild Wars world known? Is there space for unexplored continents and hitherto un-found island chains? Or have there been extensive efforts to map the unknown by some of the npcs? If there's still space to explore that is yet unmapped, any chance of exploring those areas at some point?

    In the core game and in Season 2 we found two maps of the world:

    Core map
    Season 2 map

    As you can see, there are changes between the two and even with the current map of Elona (no giant inland sea, disappointing). So it's not a case of written in stone, but ArenaNet has provided some show of what the whole world looks like.

    EDIT: For the interested, this is a fan-map version that has the labels from the Season 2 map written in legible English.

    There are canon sources that prove that Tyria (the planet) is a lot more vast than what we have on the world map ingame. There are even some other continents (not Cantha!) that we've never been to. I do not believe we will really get a lot of payoff on these during GW2's lifespan, but you never know!
