    If I remember rightly, the mag said 2012, and if it was this year then i'm sure a release date would have been set by now, on their site in their FAQ they say this;

    "When it's finished. Guild Wars 2 is the largest project ArenaNet® has ever undertaken, and we want to make sure we take the time to do it right."

    Also this is sort of relevant;

    "We will be conducting small closed alpha and beta tests in 2011. The feedback from these tests will determine when we will do public beta tests and ship the game. Guild Wars 2 is a very large and ambitious game, and Guild Wars players rightfully have very high expectations. We want players to be absolutely blown away by the game the first time they experience it."

    With what I know and can estimate, I think around March next year. Again as Snood says it also depends on the reactions from early BETA tests.

    All I know is that GW 2 was supposed to come out what...3 years ago. And each successive year...they say it will come out next year. It's getting extremely annoying. Am I the only person who feels this way?

    I don't really mind how long it takes to come out because if they don't givve a release date they are not rushed in creating aspects of the game which might suffer from being rushed through. i agree that if they keep doing that we are never going to see it, because theya re wanting to make it perfect.

    However from what knowledge i have and what i have read i have go to agree with Nick's estimate of around march next year. Heres hoping!!

    From my perspective, the longer it takes, the longer I have to build my new games rig. Damn I'm looking forward to building it too, I haven't built a system in years but I already have a few of the key components I require to begin work on it. in the next month I should be finished building it.

    GW2 does look pretty good, but my laptop is definitely not up to handling it and the beta test weekend certainly highlighted that.

    With respect to SWTOR, they don't need to wait for that one to fall-over so to speak, since it appears to be doing that already. It's very sad to see it actually, I enjoyed the story driven campaign and there is something about hopping on to your ship and visiting different worlds, but as much as they have captured some of the spectacle of Star Wars there is a lot theat they have missed like end content for those of us who completed the campaign and the lack of purpose there seems to be for anyhting you do in the game after level 50. I'll maintain my sub for maybe a few more months and see what happens, but they are already talking about going Free to Play..

    There is only one Free to Play game I want (GW2)!
