Just some general questions.
With the newly announced release date for Guild Wars 2 (28th August) does this mean that Blizzard will push to have Pandria released before, at the same time, or after GW2?
How do you think the release date of Pandaria will affect GW2 and vice versa?
Will Blizzard even care about Guild Wars 2?
Is the only reason we don't have a Pandaria release date because of Blizzard waiting for the GW2 release date?
How will the games impact each other over a period of time?
I don't think GW2 will impact WoW much, if at all, no game has ever really done before, so I doubt a B2P game will. If anything WoW sub's who get GW2 will still probably keep their WoW subs.
I personally believe that if Blizzard decides to move the Pandaria release date anywhere near GW2 release date then GW2 is in big trouble.
I know a lot of people will say "you can have GW2 alongside a sub game." But a lot of people can't afford to puchase two games so close to each other, this goes for the majority of gamers. Especially with GW2 being sold much more expensive than most games.
Also, WoW has a much bigger following and loyal fanbase. WoW players who might have checked out GW2 wouldn't want to with a new expansion for their main game being released.
People tend to stick to things they know about and they know that work well, if they have the option to chose between something "new and unknown" and something "well known and trusted" the majority will go for the latter?
This is just something that's been on my mind today since ArenaNet announced the release date for GW2.
