Guild Wars 2 Beta and Release

Mike O’Brien, president and founder of ArenaNet, posted on their blog about the news we’ve all been expecting for some time now. First and foremost, the Guild Wars 2 beta will open up in February to members of the press. The rest of us mortals will have to wait until March or April, when beta events will start for more players.

We’ve all been speculating about the actual release of the game as well, but until now nothing has been confirmed. O’Brien also took the opportunity to assure us that GW2 will definitely be launched in 2012, although the exact date is yet to be revealed.

Personally I think Guild Wars 2 will be released sometime in the last quarter this year, and it wouldn’t surprise me if it’s in December: lots of publishers seem to choose that month for releases lately, possibly due to the holiday season and increased sales. As for beta, we don’t have any details yet, but hopefully it won’t be too hard to obtain beta keys for the game.

In either case, with the upcoming beta we’ll surely have a lot more information to post!
