Orb of Venom What will happen to the Burning Legion (Legion Spoilers)

The Burning Legion have been major, recurring antagonists since WarCraft. We have won big, and lost big. In the past, while we have defeated several factions, we have never completely wiped them out, allowing future stories.

The Legion however, are so numerous, chaotic, and obsessive, that I don't think we can beat them the way we have the others. So what will happen to them in the future?

For a while I questioned if it made sense for us to have an expansion called "Legion" where we fight the Legion and yet don't actually defeat them. And as it stands, it feels like the principal thing we're aiming to accomplish in the expansion so far is just blunt the Legion's advance by closing their portal using the Pillars of Creation.

Between the mechanic where the leaders of the Legion constantly bring themselves back from the Nether and the capacity for Blizzard to come up with a huge catalog of unique demon concepts (see Diablo), I feel like this isn't going to be the last Legion expansion. The question is what they end up using for the name of the next one, since the Burning Crusade and LEGION are already taken.
