The Glorious GMMK 2 is soon to release, which is excellent news for those of you looking for a new mechanical gaming keyboard. Glorious has been known for providing unapologetically branded keyboards, mice, mousepads, and more. Since starting out a few years ago, they’ve experienced a huge rise in popularity, thanks in no small part to the quality and relatively accessible pricing of their products. The original Glorious GMMK was met with a very positive reception from the keyboard enthusiast community for its openness to upgrades and excellent build quality.

GMMK 2 release date

Happily, we aren’t too far away from the release of the GMMK 2. According to Glorious themselves, it’s set to start shipping in early April with the pink version shopping only a little later sometimes in April-May. This makes for good news for keyboard people as a new keyboard could be on your desk within the next 3 weeks.

Glorious GMMK 2 Pre-orders

So, when can you pre-order the GMMK 2? The answer is right now! Pre-orders were previously only open to members of the Glorious Guild, but now they are open to anyone and everyone. We’d recommend getting in there rapidly as GMMK are known to sell out very quickly and the GMMK 2 will be no exception.
