NCSoft and ArenaNet plan on bringing Guild Wars 2 to the consoles, eventually. A NCSoft rep confirmed the console version was in development during a conference call today.
“For the console game – when it comes to Guild Wars 2 – as we have announced already, we are in the preparation stage,” said NCSoft when asked of their plans for console development. “And also, for other titles we are in the preparation stage, but nothing has been finalized yet for me to make specific comments now.”
Apparently the console version is old news. ArenaNet’s Martin Ketstein posted in the GW2 Guru Forums that the console version had been publicly discussed several times already. Shame on me for not listening then! It's news to me now, and I'm excited!
Before you cancel you PC per-order, NCSoft also mentioned it was unlikely that the console version of Guild Wars 2 would launch with the PC version. As excited I am by this Guild Wars 2 news, I think I'll still play it on the PC. Although, if this game comes out for the Wii-U, it might be interesting to play with the tablet.
