Gamestop release date

I apologize if this has already been covered. recently posted the Collector's Edition, and they attach a June 26th release date to it. Is there any merit to this date?

It would be nice ( the optimist in me says hooray... ) but as of now... nothing... That date is just a placeholder date.

It's similar to the Diablo 3 release dates before this, and the many other release dates before that one. It's a place-holder, nothing else.

That being said, I wouldn't be too surprised at all to see a June 26th release date. The end of June/July month seems perfectly reasonable to me, given the state that the game is in. That and ArenaNet has said that the time frame from the Beta to release won't be nearly as long as with other MMO's.

Correct me if I'm wrong here but gamespot normally doesn't put exact release dates unless its final. I usually see them put quarters (Q1, Q2, etc..) for unsure release dates so this is a bit puzzling. With that being said, I wouldn't put my hopes up until I see an actual release date coming from the developer.

I'm not believing Gamestops date. They have a habit of putting GW2 dates up that's false. They did this multiple times in 2010 & 2011.

I'll never understand why people would believe anything gamestop employees say, or what their website says. My grandmother knows more about games than they do.

gamestop always puts up BS dates. Example, a year ago my friend had GW2 pre-ordered from them back when they were claiming a December 2011 release date.
