Guild Wars 2 Release Date Announcement to Be Made Imminently?
ByDate: 06-15-2012 Views:
The release date of the highly hyped title Guild Wars 2 has always been a hot topic among the communities. But the only answer you could probably get from ArenaNet is always "when it's ready". However, don't feel depressed as there is a prediction made by KDB Daewoo Securities, one of the largest and most successful brokerage firms in South Korea, indicating that Guild Wars 2's commercial launch is "imminent".
The report KDB Daewoo published predicts 3.12 million sales of Guild Wars 2 in North America and Europe in 2012 and NCSoft will receive $48 out of every $59.99 copy of GW2 sold.
We expect NCsoft to generate earnings momentum from 3Q through
2013, aided by the launches of Blade & Soul and Guild Wars 2.
Blade & Soul (3Q) and Guilds [sic] Wars 2 (4Q) to start generating revenues
And we anticipate that Guild Wars 2 will be rolled out in the US and Europe before the Thanksgiving holiday.
And according to its latest June report, the prediction seems credible.
Given that the company will need some preparation time (for
marketing and cooperation with online and offline agencies) before the
commercial launch in 3Q, we think that an announcement about Guild Wars 2's
commercial launch is imminent.
Let's just wait.
