    The Guild Wars 2 beta will begin in the second half of 2011, NCsoft has announced.
    During a conference call, chief financial officer Jaeho Lee also heavily hinted at a 2012 release for the game.

    "Starting from year 2012, we believe substantial growth will be driven by new blockbuster titles like [Blade & Soul] and Guild Wars 2," announced Lee to investors.

    "Also, Guild Wars 2 will go into beta testing stage in the second half of this year," he added.
    Guild Wars 2 developer ArenaNet has stuck staunchly to a 'when it's done' mentality regarding the game's release.
    Guild Wars 2 was announced in 2007. Four years later, a team of 150 developers still beavers away. Guild Wars 1 may have been a breakout independent success, but Guild Wars 2 is a leviathan. And the hottest MMO prospect on the block.

    There is already alpha testing, but its restricted to USA residents only. Not sure if it's reached closed beta stage yet, but the alpha has been going on for a while. Kinda funny that there is no European alpha testing and the biggest playerbase in world for GW1 was Germany.

    good news,

    so true, but i guess its the way it is. hehe, its already good enough to see that things are moving forward, and for that i'm glad.

    the time will eventually come, and when it comes ... it will be worth the wait.

    having said this ... Arenanet should have launched the game already :p.
