So here we go. GW2 has been out a couple of months now. I personally don't think it shattered as many records as ANET hoped. So I am going to ask the question everyone else is afraid to ask.
Originally posted by avalon1000 I'm having more fun in GW2 than any mmo in the last two years. I went back to play the Rohan expac and my first quest was "kill ten of those" and I felt like I was doing a job. GW2 is my game of choice for now.
Because no where in there is a kill x of those or escort or go fetch quests.

Stepwise evolution, it's better integrated/masked. Not fundamentally that different, but the presentation goes a long way towards making the game feel less of a chore during the activities.
Doesn't stop people from taking a step back and noticing it's the same thing.
as for the OP I'd say it'd hit somehere towards the 5+ year range. It used to be stated MMOs take on average about five years to go through their dev cycle. Even if they already started their game and moved a dev team over to it immediately after release of GW2, they are going to have to go through the same steps the took in their previous games. Notably revamping their engine, adding new elements that have developed across the industry, and rebuilding it to cater to a new generation of hardware. Beyond that is the way the game itself will play and the kind of game it will be overall.
Point being, five or so years until we're actually talking about a new guild wars title.

Don't know how it's relevant to the topic but...
It's never a good idea to play another MMO while you enjoy another.
Right know I could never enjoy a game without mounts after playingg Riders of Rohan, which have been the most fun Ive had in 5 years in a MMO.
But I guess filling a bar is so different from a kill 1+ quest..

Originally posted by colddog04 GW2 came out ~7 years after GW1. I don't see why GW3 wouldn't be at least on the table for 2019 or 2020.

Hey, you know, you are right. BCBully hasn't weighed in yet. Wonder where he is.

I can fill in for him to a lesser degree if need be at least.
Also I voted never, they've already created a "virtual paradigm shift" with GW2 so it should be the only game Anet will ever need to support them due to it's unsurpassable success.

Why is it the only people I see use this term are GW2 fans?

Only...well this might be crazy but I swear on my uncles grave it's not just only GW2 fans. Though let's keep playing the pretend game on the forums. Oh and forgot to mention I find that term annoying its said a lot, I feel when people want to say that they can at the very least change it up or something.

Not many "3" MMOs. AC3 as a kickstarter maybe?
Self-pity imprisons us in the walls of our own self-absorption. The whole world shrinks down to the size of our problem, and the more we dwell on it, the smaller we are and the larger the problem seems to grow.
Looking forward to EQL and EQN.

Well, EQNext is pretty much EQ3.
Yeah, not many. Perhaps there just hasn't been enough time to judge that one yet.

You seem to hate on GW 2. Ok, hate it, why to make topics about it and write in so many of em? You don't like that game, get it in your signature, we get it. Move on maybe? Or you are payed for it?
