There has been no word of GW2 being sold on Steam yet. The game still have quite some production to be done after all.
My PERSONAL guess is that yes, it will come to Steam since all GW1 titles are here. But I don't think it will be available on Steam during launch. Of Course I could be wrong...

I honestly hope so! If it comes out through steamworks, or at least gets sold on steam, I'll buy two copies of GW2, a collector's edition for the box and a digital edition for my steam account. I'll then add the keys for bonus content on my steam account, if possible.

Arenanet and Valve have a very amicable relationship so I hope we'll get all the steam support we can! :)

I doubt it will be on Steam at launch. GW1 sold very very well and they probably won't need Steam to increase popularity. My guess is that they will publish it through NCSoft in stores and digitally so that they can keep more of the revenues. It will probably come to Steam several months or years later once sales have decreased.

I agree with spyrochaete.
I think GW2 will follow the same pattern as GW: retail stores and NCsoft Store first and then Steam a little while later.
I wouldn't expect steam-achievements and (thankfully) even less expect steamworks for GW2. But I definitely think that it will be sold on steam sooner or later.

GW2 will never use steamworks. But it's very likely it will be available on steam.

It would be nice to have it on steam if theres no collectors edition, but if there is then theres no way im getting it digitally, i own all 3 collectors editions of gw1, might as well continue with gw2.

It's a shame I don't have any copy of GW directly on steam, nor will have GW2 on steam for the reason of the CE box. Didn't have the money to buy CE for the original games, definitely want it for GW2. ;D
