Guild Wars 2 coming in June
NCSoft says release date not official
Guild Wars 2 is set for release on June 28th -- or is it? NCSoft says that no official release date has been announced, and they are still waiting on feedback from beta testing before they announce a release date. Beyond saying that Guild Wars 2 will be released when it is ready, NCSoft isn’t saying much else.
Kotaku has, however, obtained a photo of an advertisement seen at Fry’s retail stole in Texas that says Guild Wars 2 is coming on June 28th. It could be nothing but a placeholder, but our sources say that it is more truth than fiction. (GameStop is saying that the game will be release on June 26th, if that means anything, and another independent retailer we spoke with says his distributor is telling him that the game is set for release on June 26th, as well.)
We think that the big takeaway here is that Guild Wars 2 is getting closer to release; and if you want the Collector’s Edition, you might want to get your pre-order in now. We suspect that a late June release for the game is likely, based on our discussions with a number of sources, but you just never know. We do think that we should know soon with an expected announcement at E3 by NCSoft.
