As excited as I am about this, they should probably hold off. If they announce something this week, it'll be gone in a couple days when Blizzcon information starts coming out.

I have given up hope on Guild Wars as it's leaning away from it's original core audience (has been since Factions, IMO) and I have been slowly losing interest in GW2 for a while now, but I still wait for that tiny glimpse of hope that'll spring me back on board with ArenaNet. This is do or die for them. If they can't show off anything absolutely fantastic in the coming weeks or at PAX, then they could a lot of current and potential players.

How can you lose hope in something you know next to nothing of?

Should be a fun week, I'm not overly enthused but very curious. :)

Oh dear; I'm such a Guild Wars 2 mark, I was actually excited to go to that site to watch an animated logo.
...
Bring on the news!

I guess I'm another "mark", then.

I am looking forward to this game because the original GW was so much fun. I hope GW2 can live up to my expectations. GW1 was probably my best online game experience ever -- blowing LotRO, WoW, and several other great online games I've played extensively right off the map, in comparison. If GW2 comes close to that mark or (dare I hope?) surpasses it, I'll be very happy with it.

The only down side of GW1 was that, once you'd played through it a few times, there was really nothing left to do.

I'm looking forward to this. I really want to see what Bobby Stein brings us (he's one of the writers - on the Nightfall CE DVD).

What a battle royalllll this is turning out to be. GW II, TOR, STO, AION. What an exciting time. Now if only AO would get the engine update and EVE would implement a ground game. I have been waiting for this announcement.

Well not really a battle.... From GW II, TOR, STO, AION. Only Aion get a near release date where you go soul sucking fishing. GWII, TOR, STO do not even have a release date yet and some of that games do not have anything other them nice pics on the internet at the moment!

Well, it's about bloody time.

To be honest I've lost a good lot of my interest in the series, but this could very well rekindle that old flame.

Time to put up or shut up.
Lets see what you got Arenanet, don't disappoint me.

I know i'm going to be downranked for this, but what do we really know about the game and why are people so excited for this? I remember hearing about GW2 waaaay back when the last expansion for GW came out, then, almost nothing. I've given up on the game until i 'see' something. GW is okay mostly because it's free, and in case people forget, it's got microtransactions in it.
So far it's nothing but hype.

I am sorry if you think GW is good because it is free. I will freely admit my experience is very limited-- GW for 3+ years, WoW for 3 months & AoC for 6 months. I will easily say among these 3 GW is the best by such a large margin its not even a competition.
I think the definition for MT is different between yours & mine. The MT I know is about paying to get the full experience. GW on the other hand does not require you to buy a single item of their store, its only there for truly hardcore folks who love collecting stuff & need extra storage space. The game was designed to have a limited storage & only when the people called on Anet to give them more & stating the fact that they will gladly pay for it did Anet agree & give them that option. There is nothing sold in that store which prevents you from experiencing the full 'content'. I believe it is the best business model for an MMO & the most fair to me as a user. Also, the gameplay & quests & missions are so well designed that you will be hard pressed to find them all in one place. The only issue I found that I missed when I occasionally play GW is the lack of player movement along the Z-axis & even that is very easy to forget once you start playing. The sheer variety in quests & missions is no MMO has come close to replicating. Also, very good looking with minimal Hardware reqs. I am sorry you cannot share in our excitement in the continuation of one of the best games we have ever played but hopefully you will at least get a demo & try out GW2.

Not sure if i phrased it right or not, but i don't think it's good "just" because it's free, but the free is a big part of it. For me, it just doesn't feel like a "world" enough to really get into, and i don't mind instances, there just seems to be something missing for me. I don't do pvp in it, so that could be a big part of what i am missing.
Something that has always bugged me though is the inability to jump down. Little hill in your way? Take the long way.

Like it or not though, what you can buy in the store is microtransactions, character slots, skills, etc. Not the same exactly as some games, but it's there. Not saying it's a negative, i've bought some of those things, just that people seem to overlook that.

I am going to give GW2 a try, most likely, as from what i've read they seem to have fixed what i don't really care for. It's just that there hasn't really been any solid info, and i'm worried it's more a case of EQ vs EQ2, type of thing. Kind of like hype for the sequel not living up to reality. I just think it's been talked about for too long without any follow through, either don't announce it until it's closer, or show more. (could be i've gotten burned out on hype for mmos the last few years, with none really getting close to the hype)

I do hope GW2 strays away from the instances, when will studios figure out that people want open worlds not enclosed spaces? Just look at the "reviews" of CO, with all the instancing it breaks the immersion for a lot of people, same with AoC.

I played GW before I played WoW and loved it, however I barley played any of the expansions since.

Along with SWTOR I might be looking forward to this game if the info given shines enough light for me to even think about.
