The publisher behind Guild Wars 2 (GW2) has previously announced a new massively multiplayer online role-playing game (MMORPG) titled Throne and Liberty. Many GW2 players hope that NCSoft’s upcoming title will be the “new” Guild Wars 2. You may be wondering, though, what the expected release date for Throne and Liberty is. Let’s break it down, shall we?

Throne and Liberty Possible Release Date

  • Between April – June 2023

NCSoft has not announced a firm release date for Throne and Liberty, but the game is rumored to be out somewhere in the first half of 2023. As it’s already nearing the end of March (at the time of writing), the obvious possible release date is between April-June 2023. Let’s hope for no delays! 🙏

EDIT: My guess is that Throne and Liberty will come out in the second half of 2023. Of course, that’s taking into account possible delays.

The mastermind behind Guild Wars and Lineage

The development of Guild Wars began in 1998, shortly after the founding of NCSoft.

  • The game was created by a team of developers led by Jeff Strain, who had previously worked on Blizzard’s popular game Diablo.
  • The team wanted to create a massively multiplayer online role-playing game (MMORPG) that would be more accessible and less time-consuming than existing games in the genre.
  • They also wanted to incorporate elements of player-versus-player (PvP) combat into the game, which was relatively uncommon in MMORPGs at the time.

Lineage was released in 1998, a year after NCSoft was founded.

  • The game was created by a team of developers led by Kim Taek-Jin, who had previously worked on the game Ultima Online.
  • Lineage was designed to be a massively multiplayer online role-playing game (MMORPG) that would appeal to both casual and hardcore players in South Korea, where online gaming was already a popular pastime.
