Think we forgot about you?
No, you don’t get off that easy!
Here’s our first recap of Over/Under, looking back at the predictions people made of the Guild Wars 2 launch date back on June 4. In hindsight, we probably should have pushed the target date back a bit — maybe it was just our unrelenting optimism coming through.
Still, we were a little amazed that as many people picked the Under — a pre-July 24 launch date — as did. 43 people were also hopelessly optimistic, while a whopping 302 picked the more realistic — and eventually correct — option.
And one commenter, Adam Elliott, was spot on with his prediction:
Over. August 28th.
Others were not so optimistic:
Over, WAY OVER. Seriously looking like very near 2013 if you ask me.
I’m thinking 2013 actually…
Over, we will be lucky if we see it in 2012. Q1, 2013.
Well, we’re happy enough that they were wrong. And we’re thankful that we won’t have to wait until Thanksgiving.
But did they have to put the launch right before PAX Prime? /whine
