Guild Wars 2 has ten times the number of ongoing developers attached to it as its famously well-supported precursor, and ArenaNet has detailed just what the team will be doing post-launch.
In an update to the MMORPG’s blog, ArenaNet noted that it has split ongoing development staff into seven teams.
A Live Security squad will smack bots, spammers and account thieves, while a Live Response crew will focus on fixing bugs, balancing and answering feedback.
The Living World team is responsible for new content, while a dedicated PvE or eSports cabal will develop Guild wars 2’s competitive side.
A Holidays and Events posse is already hard at work on tan upcoming celebration (likely Halloween) as well as being responsible for world events, and techy types have been coralled off as Mac and Performance, focusing on building an OS-X client and improving the existing PC version.
Finally, the Commerce company is led by an economist and will keep a close eye on the Black Lion Trading Company.
Interestingly, in addition to these seven defined teams, ArenaNet will sometimes throw up what it calls bonus teams, to work on special features and events; the first product of a bonus team is due in November.
