The next installment of the XNA Game Studio is close at hand!

Announced just yesterday, XNA Game Studio 2.0 is soon to be released. This will be a lot of fun, especially the network support. Like others, I’m curious about wether it will cost extra to use those network api’s. I would hope not, since we’re already paying for the XNA Creators Club membership.

What is also interesting is that the G studio will no longer be tied to the Express edition of Visual Studio. And since urban legend says that Visual Studio 2008 will be released this November, Game Studio 2.0 will hopefully be compatible with 2008.
