Guild Wars 2 Official Release Date Announced
NCSoft have finally announced the official release date for their highly anticipated fantasy MMORPG, Guild Wars 2. A recent release date leak suggesting the game would release on June 26th proved to be nothing more than a mistake by GameStop as NCSoft have announced that Guild Wars 2 will be released August 28th, 2012.
A slight disappointment for fans that were hoping for a June/July release but we are expecting more beta events and stress tests similar to the one held yesterday.
Many have been waiting for this day for months, some even years, but now we’ve finally got a date set in stone. Eager players will want to get some in the last few beta weekends in perpetration for launch day woes, we all know it’s better to get ahead quickly when it comes to thousands of players doing the same thing.
Personally, although I wasn’t expecting it much sooner, August 28th seems an age away. I’ve been playing Guild Wars 2 since the first beta event and I’m yet to grow tiresome of any aspect of the game. Let’s hope it doesn’t follow the current MMO trend of an awful launch and wows us all with smooth, crisp play from day one.
Have you pre-ordered your Guild Wars 2 yet?
Update: NCSoft have just revealed the dates for the next beta event weekend, 20th to 22nd July.
