After many years of waiting, Guild Wars 2 is finally on it’s way to release. Mike O’Brien, the CEO of ArenaNet told us in a blog post that Guild Wars 2 will launch on Tuesday, August 28th.
“This is an incredibly momentous day for the studio and for me personally. This journey began in 2007 when we first announced that we were beginning work on Guild Wars 2 and that you wouldn’t be hearing from us for a while. Then in 2010 we unveiled our manifesto for Guild Wars 2: a living breathing online world that challenges convention, that’s designed for fun instead of grind, and that brings social interaction to a new level in an online world.”
“Through all the long hours and hard decisions, we were bolstered by the knowledge that we were not in this alone. All along you’ve been there for us, cheering us on, supporting us when we needed it, testing early versions of the game, and above all, giving us your honest feedback every step of the way. Guild Wars 2 is a better game for all of the work that our community has put in.”
“Now that we’re just two months away from launch, we’ll spend our remaining time optimizing, polishing, and balancing the game, to ensure that we provide you with the best launch-day experience we possibly can.”
“To this end, I’m excited to announce that our next and final Beta Weekend Event is planned for July 20-22,” Mike O’Brien says.
For some people, I’m sure the two weeks notice into work has already been put in, but now that they’ve announced the release date, what race and class are you looking forward to playing? Are you even looking forward to the game?
