He was talking about leaks. The guardian was essentially leaked in a photo caption about a week before its official release on PCGamer. An odd way, we all thought, to introduce a profession. He brings up a few other examples, mostly centering around other gaming websites posting interviews a couple of hours before Arenanet themselves posted the guardian information. Those examples seem pretty inconsequential, the sites in question were European, Arenanet is on the Pacific coast. It’s a time zone issue, not some leak strategy.
I don’t think his idea is without merit though, because in the Eurogamer interview the following was said.
Flannum and Peters teased that a profession for people who play sneaky rogues or assassins is on the cards, but the pair were elusive as to the others.
A pretty straight forward hint that the assassin class may be the next profession released.
That’s not all. Ravious just dropped some hints in his last blog post.
Things are definitely ramping up. I expect a lot of cool news before PAX East such as more information on the new demo, possibly a new profession reveal, and… Next week ArenaNet is going to cover the human race in-depth all week with all sorts of goodies (even in-game audio and a new video), and humans won’t be the only race getting a whole week treatment in February!
I have speculated a few times, as recently as January 30th, that we’d be getting exactly this sort of thing. A feature on races to promote the game. I guess I’m not really surprised. Still, it’s exciting, and I can’t wait to see what they have in store.
I imagine it will involve the character creator heavily, along with new lore, screen shots, and voices that reflect personality choices. I imagine we’ll get to see Divinity’s Reach, a bit of humanity’s main enemies, and plenty of kryta.
I think I’m more excited to see the other race (or races) they’re going to be showing. The charr is the most likely, and I’d be glad to see it, but I’m hoping for something else. I noticed in the gamespot interview posted yesterday they had 2 norn screenshots and one sylvari. That would be sweet.
