Early this morning, Mike O'Brien, Co-Founder and President of ArenaNet, updated the official blog with some very exciting news for Guild Wars 2 fans. To celebrate the beginning of the Year of the Dragon - the Chinese New Year - Mike has announced that there will be an upcoming beta test in February for selected press. He went on to say that in March and April, we'll be seeing more larger-scaled beta events and a Guild Wars 2 release later in the year! (What say you, release date speculation junkies?)
It’s been an incredible adventure over the past five years, working with our community and our team of dedicated artists, designers, and programmers to realize this vision. This year, the seeds of that work come to fruition. We can’t wait to play the game with you.
So welcome to the Year of the Dragon – the year of Guild Wars 2.
Come discuss this exciting news with other Guild Wars 2 fans over on Guild Wars 2 Guru!
