Closed alpha and beta testing to begin this year on Guild Wars 2

ArenaNet has said closed alpha beta testing for Guild Wars 2 will happen this year.

According to an official Q&A, “the feedback from these tests will determine when we will do public beta tests and ship the game.”

However, don’t get too overly excited just yet. According to ArenaNet’s Regina Buenaobra: “The existence of friends and family closed alpha and closed beta this year has changed nothing about the release date. The release date continues to be: when the game is ready.”

Still, that good news.
