NCsoft and ArenaNet have announced the official launch of Guild Wars 2.
Even before today’s launch, more than one million fans had paid for the game in full to enjoy a three-day Headstart. Additionally, demand for the game during this Headstart had a peak concurrency of more than 400,000 players online at once.
“This is the culmination of a five-year journey and to be greeted by this level of enthusiasm by our fans is truly amazing”, said O’Brien, president and co-founder of ArenaNet. “But really our work is just beginning. Now our focus is shifting to building on this living world we’ve delivered, continuously refining our game and improving services to ensure our players have the best possible experience.”
Guild Wars 2 is an MMO available today in stores and via digital retail, for Windows PC.
