Guild Wars Support Will Continue, Despite the Sequel

Have Your Cake and Eat It, Too. Then Have Another.

In an interview with VideoGamer, ArenaNet’s global brand director has stated that Guild Wars will continue to provide the same gaming experience to its players, even though Guild Wars 2 is set to be released at some point later this year, or early 2012.

After being asked about shutting down previous MMO installments a la Star Wars Galaxies, Chris Lye stated that the original game will proceed unhindered as long as there are players to enjoy it.

The only incentive we need is to have an active player base. Guild Wars is a very cost-effective game to support and because there is no active cost to maintain both a Guild Wars and Guild Wars 2 account, we could see a lot of players keeping both.

And when asked whether players are actually capable of keeping up with two or more MMOs at one time, Lye shared his beliefs that GW “can happily coexist with other MMOs”.

Guild Wars 2 doesn’t charge a subscription and our gameplay is built to be accessible and allow players to pop in and out as they choose.

Let’s just hope you can multi-task.
