Ready to play some Guild Wars 2 this long holiday weekend?
Not so fast.
ArenaNet has confirmed via the GW2 Facebook account that there will not be a Beta Weekend Event for the game this weekend, dashing the hopes of thousands of gamers who had their centaur-outrunning sneakers all laced up and ready to go for three days or more.
So, when will the next BWE occur? Community Manager Martin Kerstein had the following to say:
Our BWE1 was super successful, we exceeded our expectations. As some of you might have experienced first hand, this lead to some technical issues. To make sure we are not running into the same situation for BWE2, we recently had a stress test, and we are currently deploying a lot of additional hardware in our datacenters.
We will be able to tell you exactly when BWE2 will take place as soon as all the hardware has been deployed. We are not withholding a date intentionally, we want to make sure that BWE2 will be a really great experience for all of you.
So, in other words, BWE2 will be: “when it’s ready.”
