Guild Wars 2 one of the most anticipated video games of 2012 finally has a release date. Come August 28th, 2012 millions are expected to flood into the world of Tyria with those who pre-order the game getting a 3 day head start. I have tried my own hands at Guild Wars 2 and in a blog post I did after experiencing 2 of the closed beta describe it as a MMO for everyone.
In a post on the official Arenanet blog Mike O’Brien president of ArenaNet and executive producer of Guild Wars 2 states:
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.
