    Guild Wars 2 could launch before Thanksgiving, release date announcement 'imminent'


    click to view


    Yes, Guild Wars 2 fans, we know that ArenaNet can't put the game out quickly enough. Believe us, we know. Thankfully, some new information uncovered through a bit of detective work on behalf of Gamebreaker's Jason Winter indicates that we may not have to wait too much longer.

    Financial reports issued by Korean Development Bank's securities firm, which is one of the largest brokerage firms in Korea, have included a number of documents involving the much-hyped title, in which predictions are made for a Guild Wars 2 release date in Q3/Q4 2012 (likely before Thanksgiving) and an "imminent" release date announcement. Keep in mind that this isn't just some random guy on the internet; these predictions come from people who report on these things for one of the largest brokerage firms in Korea, which means a lot of money (and probably some jobs) are on the line. To get the full details straight from Winter himself, go check out the full video on Gamebreaker, but take it all with a grain of salt. As ArenaNet is fond of reminding us, nothing is official until Anet says it is, and the game will be out when it's ready.

    Yes. Yes. A thousand times, yes.
    Video games don't affect you negatively; withdrawal does.

    All I have to say, is people will do anything to get their brands name out there. People like Gamebreaker are always fishing for stuff like this so they can be first. Plus, I agreed with the pre-thanksgiving launch idea before this, so I'm not any more excited.

    Yeah, I don't feel like there's actually any news from this. We already knew it'd be before the end of the year, and Thanksgiving is pretty close to that, so I figured it'd be before then anyway. And "imminent" may as well be "soon" (i.e., meaningless) in MMO-speak. :P

    "Soon" became a trademarked word by a mod on LotRO's forums years ago - it's still joked about there today. A bit like "the check's in the mail" I guess.

    As much as I enjoy the chance to play, just hoping they don't overdo it with the BWE's. Too much of a good thing, and all ...

    Is there such a thing as too much GW2?
    Hopefully the announcement will be a closer to end of summer than end of year.
