A phenomenal response from European and American MMO fans has lead Guild Wars 2 to set a record-breaking benchmark for Western MMO titles. Following research from DFC Intelligence ArenaNet have announced that Guild Wars 2 is officially the fastest selling MMORPG game of all time in Europe and North America, with impressive sales figures topping 3 million copies in just 3 months.
“After triangulating against multiple data sources, it’s clear that Guild Wars 2 is the fastest-selling Western MMO of all time based on the first nine months of availability”, said analyst David Cole of DFC Intelligence. “This puts Guild Wars 2 in an impressive position when they release in China, where we’ve seen similar franchises really take off”.
Guild Wars 2 has yet to release in the Chinese market and ArenaNet are expecting rapid growth once it does. The potential for Guild Wars 2 in the East is huge when you consider the difference in active MMO numbers.
To celebrate the exciting news ArenaNet have also announced a brand new free trial, giving players the opportunity to sample the wonders of Guild Wars 2. Starting today new players can make an account and participate in the free trial until Monday, August 26th. To sign up for the free trial, click here.
