Guild Wars 2 is going to make a major change in the way future content is released, phasing out a system that has been present since the game's launch.
ArenaNet released a studio update blog post where they explained what the future holds for Guild Wars 2 and how they will approach the new releases for the game.
While it's one of the better-performing PC games under the NCSoft umbrella, it is still nowhere near the revenue milestones that were raked in by the likes of World of Warcraft but the new plans might actually help a bit with narrowing it.
Namely, Guild Wars 2 will step away from the Living Story concept and its wonky monetisation model in favour of more frequent expansions.
These expansions will be released more often than the ones we've had so far but they will not be as big in scale, which is only natural due to the shorter development cycle.
To compensate for less content per expansion, ArenaNet noted the price of each will be lower but there is currently no way to know exactly how much bang we will get for the buck.
Elite Specialisations were not mentioned in the blog post either, leading the fans to believe they will be introduced in every other expansion or even every third. Keep in mind this is only speculation at this point and official info will come at a later date.
