Has there been any inkling as to what year it may be released?

@Wild Colors

Official, not yet.
It is widely believe by many to be this year, for many reasons such the ramp up in over all information, most gaming sites and magazines are calling it one (along with SWTOR) of the most anticipated MMO's of 2011 which Arena Net isn't correcting them, etc, etc, etc...

It went into development back in 2007 (and the only reason they announced it so early back then was to explain why the original game would no longer get episodic content) so we are coming up on 4 years in development. Typical development cycle is 4-5 years, so it coming out soon - just not soon enough it feels! :)

GW2 = Vaporware?

It would be nice to know which decade they are targeting though...

@Zantom You don't rush a great game in the making. Taking their time is worth our wait. Want to see a rushed mistake? Go look up Aion.

Oh I don't want it rushed :)

I'm just being impatient... This title just keeps looking better and better.

Thats not vaporware thats a license to print money. GW2 just might set new records for most games sold and preordered.

@dudes It will be released on July 14th this year. At 12:04 PM Pacific. Unless it's not ready by then, in which case it will be released later, or it's ready sooner than that, in which case it will be released earlier.

Guild Wars 2 is becoming the next Duke Nukem Forever. It's already been 5 or 6 years since they announced it.. what's another 7 or 8.

as DNF (hmmm might that be the joke of 3d realms?) has never really revealed ingame content, GW2 on the otherhand is releasing it like a shovel load at a time. This will only mark the beginning, and seen that Anet only releases info when its virtually done, i might think this is a good indicator for the release date which is this year i hope

ArenaNet can take their sweet time to get it right - I don't want a rushed game - I'm glad that there are still companies that take 5 years to make a solid MMO, because we've all seen how Cryptic's rushed schedule of 1.5-2 years per lightweight MMO turns out.
