Guild Wars 2 Live Development Team Overview

ArenaNet have posted an update that may on the surface be only of interest to MMO industry geeks like me. It’s an overview of how the Guid Wars 2 ‘live team’ is actually a series of teams devoted to different aspects of the game.

The post though is more than a puff-piece promoting ArenaNet’s commitment to Guild Wars 2. It also shows pretty starkly that there’s some very serious strategy gone into supporting the game ongoing. I’m particularly encouraged that there are separate teams for holiday events (a Halloween one being the first cab off the rank) and a Mac team to support the recently release Beta client for that platform

Read the team breakdown in full, and post your thoughts in comments. Are you still rapt with the game and if so, what are you hoping to see out of the Halloween event?
