This morning, I logged in to Facebook and scrolled through my newsfeed, searching for something of interest, then I saw this:
“…the year of Guild Wars 2!” FINALLY. 2011 was full of speculations and rumors. I remember hearing it would be released mid-year, then rumors of November and December. Now, it’s a whole new year and a new lunar year.
Here’s what ANet Founder and President Mike O’Brien had to say:
We recently finished our first closed beta test, and we’re now ready to hold progressively larger events. In February we’ll invite select press to participate in beta testing, and in March and April we’ll aggressively ramp up the size of our beta test events so that many of you will have a chance to participate. And of course, this all leads to the release of Guild Wars 2 later this year.
It’s been an incredible adventure over the past five years, working with our community and our team of dedicated artists, designers, and programmers to realize this vision. This year, the seeds of that work come to fruition. We can’t wait to play the game with you.
In December, the final profession was announced and closed beta began.
In February, press beta.
In March and April, larger beta testing.
Could this mean GW2 will be available this summer? I certainly hope so!
Stay tuned to Nerdery — I’ll be updating like a giddy little fanboy as soon as more is released.
Until next time,
