I am hoping that Eberron/Dark Sun get a DDN treatment. I don't necessarily need a new set of campaign setting books, but I would like to at least see DDI articles full of stats for all the important characters, campaign specific playable races/classes, and the like. I am happy to go to products I already own for the fluff. Meanwhile, I really want updated Ravenloft and Planescape products, and an updated set of Gloomraught rules would be neat too.

I hope they don't skip over Dark Sun like they did in 3e. I could just use campaign books from 4e, but I wouldn't have all the monsters or Sorcerer-Kings for fights.

The most iconic settings will, in all likelihood, all be updated. I fully expect Forgotten Realms, Eberron, Greyhawk, Dragonlance, Spelljammer/Planescape and Darksun. Other settings are less of a sure thing but will probably see releases in Dragon at the very least.
If they release any of the classics (FR, Greyhawk, Dark Sun, Dragonlance, Planescape, etc), go back to the beginning, no Time of Troubles, Prism Pentad, Faction War, Spellplague, etc, and keep them static, like Al-Qadim.
one thing i intresting that was said at pax was that they might refer to campaign settings not yet published in earlyer material.
I'd be suprised if FR and Eberron weren't done pretty quickly. Betting Greyhawk is the "Core" setting in the PHB and not particulalrly expanded on. After that I'd like to think they will do some new settings, but expect they won't and will re-update the old stuff again. I'd think some sort of pirates, steampunk, or "Fantasy Asia" would be a high priority. I'd also enjoy a new setting, especially over rehashing the same base ones .... again....
About pirates we can get a reboot of "Red Steel" and "Spelljammer".Eberron is "dungeon punk".About steampunk or fantasy gaslight... we would need a settin like Ravenloft (Rv is gothic fantasy). A steampunk settin with fantasy technology and firearms would need a lot of playtesting to get the right balance about sword vs. guns vs magic.About oriental fantasy or wuxia... Kara-Tur (FR spin-off) and al-Qadim is enough. (how would be a oficial Kara-tur videogame?)
