    None stated. Was there an interview or QnA where ArenaNet said that would be a goal or focus?

    I thought they said they planned on bringing in player housing at some point?

    Yes, there are plans for player housing and guild halls.

    I'm a big fan of user created content. I would love an expansion or add on (to any theme park mmo for that matter) that would allow user created content, player housing, player ran shops, etc....

    The talk was actually of Airships being Guild Housing :D

    There are plans for Player Housing being added, though likely not in a format you will want if you are a big Sandbox fan.

    Player run shops and other sandbox features are highly unlikely.

    GW2 is (IMHO) an amazing virtual world but it is 100% a themepark virtual world.

    Correct, and if there will be any player-housing in future, it will be themepark-style player housing, which again has nothing to to with a sandbox feature.

    from a similar link

    We will introduce player housing at some point after launch, and at that time we will also implement guild halls.

    Player housing is not a feature that defines a sandbox style game in any way, in fact more theme parks have it than sandboxes.

    I'm not sure that any MMORPG feature can be exclusively tied to either game design, (perhaps more of a matter of degree?) but one things for sure, the way GW2 is currently designed it will never be a sand box style game.

    That road wasn't taken a long time ago and there's no going back.

     

    In my day MMORPG's were so hard we fought our way through dungeons in the snow, uphill both ways.
