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.
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.
