NCsoft’s reported Q4 financials, showing a 22 percent loss despite an 11 percent sales rise.

The news comes nipping at the heels of lay-offs and restructuring reports on Wednesday.

Fans wanting Guild Wars 2 will suffer because of this, with the game has been pushed into 2010/2011 to focus more on the release of MMO Aion this year.

Having proved so successful in Korea, the company plans on releasing Aion in Japan in the third quarter. The US and Europe will get the game in Q4.

    Sad to hear that Guild Wars 2 is being pushed back, but it’s kinda good. It’ll give me a bit more time to finish the chapters of Guild Wars and then join in on the fun in Aion.

    That game looks sweet. Hope it comes with free no-monthly payments

    i kids smelled that when they said (out of the blue) that they are releasing some new content for GW
