    John Gaudiosi over at Forbes did an interview with Guild Wars 2 Lead Producer Chris Whiteside. I agree 100% with Chris Whiteside view on the old subscription model. Many players may gain interest in an up and coming MMO but one of the main questions “Is there a subscription fee?” Companies may be missing potential future customers by already limiting their player base by subscriptions. Subscriptions doesn’t make a game successful. Good development and good content does that. Subscriptions only make a game profitable for a time period.


    GW2 Stratics want to thank Forbes John Gaudiosi and GW2 Lead Producer Chris Whiteside for the great interview for all the GW2 fans to read.
