World of Warcraft: Mists of Panderia may still be in beta, but according to Blizzard COO Paul Sims, somewhere there are Blizzard designers working on the next World of Warcraft expansion. 

Mists of Panderia is the fourth WoW expansion. Speaking with VG247, Sims says the "general layout" for number five is already in place.

“They’re [the] lore creators. They’re the ones who drive what the world looks like today and what it’ll be like tomorrow and beyond,” said Sims. “I think the future of World of Warcraft continues to be bright and I think Mists of Pandaria is going to breathe huge life into what I believe is the best MMO out there."

It may be a long time before we hear anything else about what's next for WoW after Mists of Panderia, but fans can assured that, no matter what happens, more content is on the way.
