Next Guild Wars 2 beta event waiting on more hardware

When is the next beta weekend event for Guild Wars 2? That question has been on my mind ever since the first one ended. With the impending long weekend ahead of us, some people had hoped ArenaNet would open the beta back up in time for Memorial Day, but that is not the case.

According to a Facebook post by the company, more hardware is being deployed to ArenaNet’s data centers to avoid the technical issues that users experienced last time. “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 there you have it. Not exactly the response I would’ve liked, but knowing is better than utter silence. Now we can spend the weekend enjoying the lovely weather outside. Pfft, yeah right. Diablo III it is!
