Nah Seong Chan the managing director of NCsoft talked about Guild Wars 2 future plans during the company’s first quarter earning call through GamesIndustry.biz. This is what he had to say:

“…Of course,  we are preparing an expansion pack, but in terms of when we will actually launch it, it’s something we are still monitoring.

“We are looking to the performance of the game, and then we will decide what will be the best time to do the launch.”

It seems  like NCSoft are preparing an expansion for the critically acclaimed free-to-play MMORPG – Guild Wars 2. It’s not a real surprise; however it’s good to hear an official confirmation from the publisher.

Are you still enjoying Guild Wars 2 and are you excited for the upcoming unannounced expansion? Let us know in the comments below.

UPDATE: NcSoft has sent us an update clarifying the issue. An expansion is not confirmed as they are currently evaluating the best time for launching an expansion.

“In regards to your recent post on a Guild Wars 2 expansion, there is a slight misunderstanding when interpreting the answer from the NCSOFT earnings call. We are considering an expansion, but we are taking a wait-and-see stance. We are evaluating the performance of the game and deciding on when would be the best time to launch an expansion. But right now, our Living Story approach is very successful in keeping players engaged with new and exciting content. Launching boxed expansions are a great way to package content, but if we can do this on a more regular basis, something we’ve been doing since launch, it provides players with new content to explore and experience every time they log into the game.”

    Before anyone gets too excited about the expansion, it helps to look
    back to March when NCsoft also announced that ArenaNet was preparing a
    Guild Wars 2 expansion – which Anet promptly shot down with an “er no,
    no we’re not, and we’ve got no plans to either.”

    So while
    there’s a chance this isn’t just a desperate attempt to drum up their
    stock price and Anet really is preparing an expansion, it’s a good idea
    to wait for the actual developers to make the announcement in case
    NCsoft is putting the cart before the horse yet again.
