I suppose I should call attention to the upcoming Guild Wars 2 beta. Obviously Arenanet has said over and over that the closed beta will happen sometime in 2011, so it’s not really any surprise that rumours are beginning to spread this late in the year.
In particular jeuxvideo, a french site, caught hold of a Korean gaming convention press release from NCSoft. Now it’s garbled beyond belief being translated from Korean to French to English, but hopefully you can get the gist of it.
From the GW2Guru thread.
Of course, the big players will travel among them NCSoft. And if you talk about this show is that the South Korean press relayed a statement indicating the presence of Guild Wars 2: so far, not surprising. What is more, however, is that the press release mentions his presence there “following the start of the Beta West!” This would mean that the beta of Guild Wars 2 would start by the month of November!
So it’s essentially a press release relayed through the Korean gaming press that indicates beta may begin by early November.
And even then it’s a closed beta as has been mentioned a few times.
The last time a beta rumour leaked it was false, but before anybody could breathe there were already people peeved that any news of it hadn’t come from an official source.
This time Arenanet seems to be taking a firm stance of non-confirmation and non-denial.
Martin Kerstein’s response.
We haven’t changed our stance on this. We will start closed beta before the end of the year like we mentioned in our FAQ.
Oh Martin you Beta-blocker.
