The first two Guild Wars 2 novels were published by Pocket Star Books, a media tie in imprint of Pocket Books. Pocket Books in turn is owned by Simon & Schuster.
Earlier this month Pocket Books tweeted this about their imprint.
So I went back and checked the publisher information on the Amazon pages of the books, and sure enough Pocket Books itself seems to now be the publisher.
This change could certainly help explain the pushed back placeholder dates I wrote a short post about back in March. Sea of Sorrows had been set to be released at one point as early as March 2012, but according to Amazon the placeholder is now February 2013.
Publishers typically only have so much room in their schedule for each printing so I suppose the book ended up at the back of Pocket Books line.
Wish I’d picked up on that detail in the previous post.
Pocket Star seemed relatively successful as a publisher, I believe they also published World of Warcraft novels. That line seems to have moved to Pocket Books as well. I do wonder how successful the Guild Wars 2 books have been though. How about some sales numbers Arenanet?
