Just three months ago, ArenaNet told Guild Wars 2 players the game was bound for Steam with full crossplay in November. You might have forgotten that, what with the fact that the studio announced End of Dragons during the same event, and that kinda stole the show. Also it’s 2020, so that August event feels like a year ago.Steam release isn’t happening anytime soon. “We’ve made the decision to put the Guild Wars 2 Steam release on hold for the time being,” the studio said this evening. “Our number one priority right now is crafting Guild Wars 2: End of Dragons with the high quality you expect and deserve.” You know Cantha is Anet’s highest priority because it said that part twice.
In the meantime, the company says it’s “full speed ahead on delivering an epic climax to The Icebrood Saga that lives up to (and we hope exceeds) previous Living World finales,” with the trailer dropping next week. There’s no new ETA for when Steam is happening, unfortunately.
