ArenaNet has announced that the beta for Guild Wars 2 will start this coming March. ArenaNet president Mike O’Brien, through an official Guild Wars 2 blog post, says that the team is trying to get the testing process underway. The team has finished with their first closed beta test and are eager to hold larger beta testing.
Those who would like to participate in the beta must know that next month, the invitation process will start. O’Brien reveals that they will be choosing representatives of the press to participate in the open beta. In March and April, the beta test events will be a whole lot bigger with interested players being allowed to participate. ArenaNet’s president feels it right to assure fans that the Guild Wars 2 will be released later this year. However, there is still no word of an official launch date. Maybe, the developers are still depending heavily on the results of the beta testing.
Last week, Guild Wars 2 writer Angel Leigh McCoy reported that the game is doing well under development and that the team is planning to hold an beta. Apparently, Guild Wars 2 is gearing up to be one of the year’s biggest MMO releases. It looks to be worthy of being mentioned side by side with TOR and The Secret World. Because of this, the usual World of Warcraft concerns pop up just like when Star Wars – The Old Republic was about to be released.

Will this new MMO, as well as the other 2012 MMO releases, prove to be devastating to WoW? Will Guild Wars 2 steal away some of WoW’s current subscribers? We have to keep on waiting for updates. For now, the game is still gearing towards a testing process that could help polish it further."
BOYCOTTING EA / ORIGIN going forward.
