Colin Johanson - Jan/Feb/March Releases
So it looks like they're finally trying to avoid the bad PR nightmare that they keep running into with their terrible communication. I guess it's cool that they're telling us that they plan to be clearer but I think it probably would have been better to just tell us all at once instead of
Just to help provide some clarity on this, we’ll be releasing within the next couple of weeks a high level summary of our big plans for the first half of 2013 to help provide more transparency into our plans with the game going forward. This will include providing more details about our goals for the game, information about the stories and features that you’ll see in the Jan/Feb/March releases.
To set expectations accordingly, the January release will be a relatively small release that sets the table for the stories and features we plan to roll out with the Feb/March releases and beyond. Also, there will be no new race, profession, or new region with these larger Feb/March releases. One of our major goals with these releases is making our existing world as strong as possible, ensuring there are reasons to go to all the locations in the world we’ve already built, and strengthening the core game we’ve provided. In saying this will be an expansions worth of stuff in these releases, we’re talking about the number of new features that will be rolled out across PvE, WvW, and PvP in early 2013, which usually you’d only find in an expansion for a traditional MMORPG.
More details and specifics to come in the next couple of weeks, but I hope that helps provide some more insight into what to expect at a very high level.
"Hey guys. We're gonna tell you everything about the upcoming stuff in the next couple weeks" ... At least they're trying.
That is a BOLD statement. And I'm pretty hyped to see if they deliver on it or not. Especially since their ideas on certain things in the past hasn't quite lined up with the general communities consensus (dungeon difficulty for starters) so I'm kind of skeptical... But still excited.

Skeptically excited. That's a thing right?
