During a recent investors call, NCsoft CFO Jaeho Lee has confirmed that a beta for anticipated MMO Guild Wars 2 will be rolling out later this year - and that the full game will likely slated for release in 2012.
Starting from year 2012, we believe substantial growth will be driven by new blockbuster titles like [Blade & Soul] and Guild Wars 2.
Also, Guild Wars 2 will go into beta testing stage in the second half of this year.
The 2011 release calendar seems to be getting slimmer by the day, but rest assured that we're set for plenty of announcements at E3. More to the point, Guild Wars 2 will face stiff competition from Star Wars: The Old Republic, Warhammer 40,000 and Blizzard's Project Titan when it finally hits the shelves. Not to mention WoW. We'll keep you posted.
