Guild Wars 3 Release Date: When is the game coming out?
First, let us discuss the main aspect of the game: millions of die-hard Guild Wars fans and MMO fans, in general, have been waiting for quite a long time, and that is to know the game’s release date.
As of writing this review, we do not have any official data to determine when this game is going to be released. ArenaNet has by themselves, released no details and has shown no indication of even remotely mentioning about making or releasing a third part of this popular series.
There are rumors that the game might release in 2025-26, but that date is too far away to speculate.
We must consider the fact that ArenaNet has been busy releasing additional pieces of content for Guild Wars 2 in the form of expansions like Heart of Thorns, Path of Fire, and End of Dragons.
The game’s fourth expansion, Guild Wars 2: Secrets Of The Obscure, is also due to be released on 22 August 2023.
Moreover, they were also busy releasing the game to Steam on the occasion of celebrating the game’s ten-year anniversary to help widen the player base even more and become more accessible.
Moreover, there are also rumors floating around that ArenaNet is looking to make a smaller-scale title set in the same Guild Wars universe to help attract more players to engage with the game.
We don’t know whether this will actually come to fruition, but it is clear that they want to do this first to make sure the old title still plays well on platforms like Steam and is also well-received by fans. In doing so, the game will increase in popularity once again and the game’s fanfare will eventually give them an incentive to make a full-fledged sequel.
