    With over a million folks signing up for the Guild Wars 2 closed beta, NCSoft and Arena.Net have announced that the next closed beta event will take place at the end of March.
    Can't wait.

    This is already in pretty heavy discussion in the "Beta emails this week i hope" thread.

    Stop making new threads. Check for an existing one, especially since they are on the front page, before making a new one. FFS, there are 2 locked threads on this very subject on the first page still!

    Not going to sticky it. If we stickied everything that deserved a sticky, the entire front page would be just stickies. There are enough of them as it is.

    And this is the, "original" thread. The other beta e-mail thread is now kinda discussing this, but there's no harm in a having an easy to find thread about this.

    Plus, lets face it Mif, only a hand full of people here read stickies.

    It's sad indeed, but that just gives them more time to add more polish. That way once more people get their hands on it, the news about it will be that much better.

    Lets see, first CB late marche. Assuming there won't be and other (couple) of CB, that still leaves Open Beta and probably a stress test too. I can't see the game being released anytime before late june.
    I also can see it being pushed back a little to give it more breath from wow's MoP release (which i think should be around that time too, probably a bit sonner)

    Twitter said this too, for those who may want another source of confirmation.

    Hi folks, just to confirm, the sign ups last week are for a chance at the next (end of march) and following beta events for #GuildWars2 ~AT
    This also mentions following beta events, so it may be safe to assume there will be several CB events and hopefully (more speculative) an open beta event afterwards.

    Very bad news. It's makes me sad waiting so long.

    My Aion account got renewed for that 2 week 'Call to arms?' promotion. That, Skyrim, LoL, and Minecraft will hold me off until March, longer if I'm unlucky with beta invites.

    On Topic; I was hoping/thinking ealry march, not late. Slightly dissapointing, yet awesome news. Still just as hyped

    Calm down people, I'm sure Anet has perfectly good reasons to announce a late march beta. Things take time to finish and I'm sure they are implementing the feedback they got from the press beta. They want to minimize the amount of double feedback so they want to change what they can now before running new tests.

    There is no such thing as "open" beta in GW2. At least not as in everyone will be able to able if they choose to.

    So, any of you guys that has any idea what that means in terms of release date? I have no clue, but I remember some people that had very good estimations for things like the wow expansion (I know, it's another game etc). Will there be an open beta like WoW had? will the closed beta be followed by many more closed beta's?

    Anyone got a hunch?
