TheWashington-based studio aims to turn the Guild Wars sequel into themost popular PvP game within the MMO genre, game director Colin Johanson toldPolygon; however, more work is required before they make their next move.

Asa result of the time needed to spend working on this aspect of the game, we haven't had a whole lot of an opportunityto grow that into the major eSports scene.
