Guild Wars 2 Receiving An Expansion’s Worth of Updates in Feb/March
Guild Wars 2′s January update will be relatively small, setting the groundwork for the larger releases scheduled for February/March, which will contain an expansion’s worth of features, but no new races, professions, or regions.
In a forum post, Guild Wars 2 Game Director Colin Johanson outlined ArenaNet’s plans for the next three months. Johanson wrote:
“To set expectations accordingly, the January release will be a relatively small release that sets the table for the stories and features we plan to roll out with the Feb/March releases and beyond. Also, there will be no new race, profession, or new region with these larger Feb/March releases. One of our major goals with these releases is making our existing world as strong as possible, ensuring there are reasons to go to all the locations in the world we’ve already built, and strengthening the core game we’ve provided. In saying this will be an expansions worth of stuff in these releases, we’re talking about the number of new features that will be rolled out across PvE, WvW, and PvP in early 2013, which usually you’d only find in an expansion for a traditional MMORPG.”
