Guild Wars 2 Sells Over 2 Million Copies

Guild Wars 2 Sells Over 2 Million Copies



Guild Wars 2 is an immense game, and if I can rip myself away from it for five minutes I might get around to writing some thoughts on it. As it is, I bring word that it has managed to sell over two million copies in just over a fortnight. That is despite ArenaNet temporarily halting first-party sales in order to maintain the in-game experience. The team are also seeing over 400,000 concurrent players on a regular basis, a fantastic feat of server management and player enthusiasm.

This impressive performance must be held up against the struggles being seen by Star Wars: The Old Republic and The Secret World, both of which are currently monthly-sub titles. While we don’t know what Guild Wars will be like a few months down the line, the suits behind the aforementioned titles must be wondering whether they made serious mistakes by sticking with a subscription paying model. I personally this Guild Wars has a lot to offer and will prove to be a huge success in the long-term for ArenaNet.
