Games publisher NCsoft has finally confirmed the release date for long-awaited MMO Guild Wars 2 - it is now down to arrive in Europe and North America on August 28th.
“We’re offering gamers an experience that delivers on the promise of online gaming with a truly social experience in an immense, shared world ,” said Mike O’Brien, president and co-founder of ArenaNet, the publisher's in-house studio.
“After five years of creation, development, and polish, announcing the launch date of Guild Wars 2 is a huge milestone for us, but the thing we’re most looking forward to is seeing gamers from all over the globe explore this world and begin creating their own stories.”
ArenaNet says it will now focus on polishing Guild Wars 2 to ensure the 'highest quality experience on launch day' (no server problems, please!), which includes hosting a final Beta Weekend Event on July 20th-22nd 2012.
