Not likely to launch beside PC version.

Guild Wars 2, NCSoft and ArenaNet’s long-awaited MMO sequel, is coming to console. An NCSoft representative confirmed its development during a conference call today.

“For the console game – when it comes to Guild Wars 2 – as we have announced already, we are in the preparation stage,” said NCSoft when asked of their plans for console development. “And also, for other titles we are in the preparation stage, but nothing has been finalized yet for me to make specific comments now.”

NCSoft added that the possibility of the console version launching alongside the PC version is not likely.

ArenaNet’s Martin Ketstein followed up with a comment on the Guild Wars 2 Guru Forums.

“We stated multiple times in public that we have a small team working on a console version, but that we are fully dedicated to make the most kickass game for PC.”

You may notice the “already” factor in both NCSoft and ArenaNet’s comments. Either way, it’s something we haven’t heard before and we figured it’d be news to a lot of people, considering the internet’s going abuzz with this, right now.

Thanks, Guild Wars Insider.
