Just a few months ago, in August, we got the announcement that Guild Wars 2 is coming on Steam. It is one of the oldest MMORPGs that is still running, and to celebrate its 8 years of running it was supposed to come on Steam in November 2020. However, according to the latest official information, it seems that this is not the case really. Just a few weeks away from the Steam release, we get to know from the developer that it is not. ArenaNet, the developer of Guild Wars 2 made a new post regarding this. Click here to check it out.

According to the announcement, the Steam release has been delayed indefinitely for now. ArenaNet says that this is due to the upcoming expansion Guild Wars 2: End of Dragons. At the end of Summer 2020, we first got to know of End of Dragons. They were quite surprised by the amount of hype they got due to this. It soon became their top priority to deliver this next expansion. Due to this, all of their focus went on this, and consequently, they decided to put the Steam release for Guild Wars 2. The people at ArenaNet only want to focus on the betterment of the End of Dragons. They want to make sure that it is of high quality, and has no issues. Furthermore, they also plan on making an insane climax to The Icebrood Saga. And, they even added that The Icebrood Saga: Champions will have its first trailer released on November 5, 2020. For those who are unaware, The Icebrood Saga: Champions is a multi-chapter Living World finale that features a new story, repeatable game content, rewards, achievements, and masteries. In the weeks between releases, each chapter will continue to evolve with new content and ways to play. Click here to learn more about The Icebrood Saga: Champions.

There has been no specific date for the Steam release, and it has been delayed indefinitely. We have no idea when is it going to make its way to Steam. And, all we can do is wait
