We don't know yet, but it seems like we will have to wait one more year for GW2.
Still we have received lots of information and videos and the game looks pretty close to being finished (just some polishing left) and then it gets delayed.
I know some people have been waiting for many and many years for this game, and they probably dont mind waiting another year and they will probably play it no matter what.
The hype, however or whatever you want to call it, has started already. Probably because of all the information out there.
For how long will it last and will it last long enough for the game to finally be released?
Personally, I had hopes for march - june next year.. since some people might have started to get tired of star wars, people in wow will have killed deathwing for the 1200 time and aren't too excited about the 1201 time.
I would suppose wows panda x-pac will come later next year, I dont know about other games but there will probably be other new ones, and old ones might improve like rift getting some updates.
The hype is probably increasing now because there aren't much exciting going on at the mmo side atm, wow has decreased subs, people already tried rift and either liked it or didnt but they know what it's about and so on and probably other stuff, and we get all this information about this game that look awsome.
I dont know, it just feels like they should take advantage of the situations, and I feel like delaying will hurt them more than not. Sure, we don't want them to rush it out (even though game probably wont be perfect at release whenever it is either) but shouldn't they have hold on to their information a bit longer then? And give us more when timing is right?
