In a recent earnings call, NCsoft stated that they are planning on having closed beta before the end of the year, but they are anticipating the thought of moving the CBT phase into the start of next year.
ArenaNet employee Martin Kerstein said "people should not be worried about the announcement" - not many in the community seem convinced after hearing the news.
This brings me to an interesting question for you guys. We've been waiting quite a long time for Gw2 to come around, and by next year it'll be 5 years since the announcement was made that it was being produced. There are a lot of people that will say it's a bad thing, that we've been waiting forever for the game to come out and now that NCsoft is anticipating delaying release by potentially a couple of months, does this bother you guys?
Then there are others who will say it's a good thing. In a sense that ArenaNet is taking time to polish off the game and get everything to a good standard. What are your thoughts on this guys? If CBT goes into 2012, will you be frustrated or happy if this happens?
Me personally? Least I have Saints Row 3
