Guild Wars Patch Plans

Though they are busy developing Guild Wars II, ArenaNet is not done with the original Guild Wars, as an update on GuildWars.com announces plans for an update that includes Embark Beach as a new outpost to the Battle Isles, seven-player parties, and much more. Destination: Embark Beach gives an overview of the plan.

The only GW patch I'll ever be interested in is the one that lets them restore all the stuff I lost when my account got hacked, due to their shitty game account security policies.

Honestly, who thought it was a good idea to tie a game account to an email that can never be changed??

And then they don't even have a means to fix the inevitable losses from accounts being hacked.

They had sold over 6 million units as of a couple years ago and have a pseudo cash shop peddling vanity and convenience items at hefty prices.

That said, their business model is predicated on shipping paid expansions every 6-8 months and they haven't had one in over 3 years now.

I could, and probably will at some point, spend time researching....but does anyone know how Arenanet is making enough money to support GW for free all these years, keep a dedicated team on that game AND develop GW2 for as long as they have? They have other games/projects out there I'm not aware of generating funds?

Yeah, the huge patch came out yesterday. It's nice to see them still fiddling with the game.

Guild Wars has a dedicated live team which isn't involved in GW2 development. Last week they released a total overhaul of the dervish class and the Embark Beach patch is already live (having 7 hero panels open is a little too much).
