ArenaNet’s released a 15-minute history of the company, showing the humble beginnings of three people working in a bedroom after quitting Blizzard.

Founder Mike O’Brien tells of moving out of a bedroom and to Seattle to spend a summer working in his living room. The company was founded in 2000.

Guild Wars was released in 2005, published by NCSoft. O’Brien and his team are now working on Guild Wars 2, which is estimated as having a 2011 release.
