EVERYONE knows they will have a Ranger class, so they might wait. I think the next class will be more obscure. LIKE MESMERS (or Ritualists. But probably Mesmers because they are the bomb).
I personally think that they will release the most obvious classes first.
At GamesCon you can probably play with either Elementalist, warrior or ranger and after that they will start releasing classes like mesmer etc (assuming mesmer will be in GW2, but the class was kinda unique so I don't think they'd want to get rid of mesmers in GW2).
Btw didn't they say there will be some new professions? (by new I mean never before seen ones)
Yes, there will be 8 classes. Some old, some new.
Probably 6 of them are the core GW1 classes (ranger, necro, monk (though they will be more like paladin i think), elementalist, mesmer and warrior)
And 1 of the 2 remaining classes is most likely a sin/rogue.
For people that don't look up GW2 info that often, these concert art pieces were released a few months ago.
So far the 'design' of this concept art is exactly the same as the art that can be found on the profession pages on the official website. Though they did change the mace from the warrior concept art to a sword. As you can see it pretty much confirms mesmer,ranger, assassin and paladin-ish classes.
