    ArenaNet has said from the beginning that their beta tests were going to be pretty darn close to release,  unlike most MMOs that are in "beta" for up to a year.

    If nothing goes wrong we are probably looking at an very late spring/early summer release, maybe mid-summer.

    ANet had said it again and again. There will be beta events but no open beta.

    Nobody releases mid summer. If things go extremely well then maybe june / 1st few days of july else they'll probz carry it over to Q3.

    They also mentioned that the signups were for the end of March and following beta events ;) And regularly said they'd be opening up beta for an increasingly large crowd moving closer towards launch, the release date will be determined by the results.

    Logic do not belongs in this forum. Please leave the logic at the door when you enter and make up stories as you go. :P


     



    My comment wasn't logical?  Is it not the usual progression to go from stress testing directly to release where MMOs are concerned?  I've yet to see an MMO perform stress tests and not release shortly after, but whatever floats your boat.

    May/June is certain...unless the beta go very bad ofc

    find it really silly people thinking otherwise when they, almost, stated it....

    [quote][i]Originally posted by Suzie_Ford[/i] [b]With over a million folks signing up for the Guild Wars 2 closed beta, NCSoft and Arena.Net have announced that the next closed beta event will take place at the end of March. There is no word on when invites will go out but you may want to start catching that cold for the last week of March. [quote] [i]Guild Wars 2[/i]’s next closed beta test is scheduled for late-March and will provide players with an opportunity to experience its deep RPG game elements, epic World v.. World battles and inviting social gameplay while helping the team load test the servers.   [/quote] [/b][/quote]ž

     

     

    Hope so.

    Hope im wrong , though.

    i am not in EU or USA ... and i signed up ... wana know how i feel ? ! :S

    "Open" beta is becoming a lot looser in its definition as time progresses, i mean besides some F2P games i can't think of a "tripple A" MMO in recent history that has had a truely open beta where everyone was allowed to flood the gates. Having a million people trying to play on a handful of servers doesnt really fufill anything really. I think open beta is kind of evolving to mean more of Public beta then anything. Then again i guess we could just call it public beta :p

    Either way, not really worth grasping at straws over.

    The Secret World, 19th of June. That's pretty damn close to midsummer.

    If they won't release it by the end of May-mid June i expect it to see after summer vacations. 1st September or something. As someone said earlieer.. no one releases mid summer =p

    If nobody releases mid summer...there will be no competition o.O

    Play for fun. Play to win. Play for perfection. Play with friends. Play in another world. Why do you play?

    I belive most devs want to sell as much copies in 1st month as they can. And during summer most kids have holidays so there is less customers.
