Guild Wars Sells 2 Million Worldwide

NCsoft Europe can proudly announce that the Guild Wars franchise has sold more than two million units worldwide to date. When the first installment in this award-winning series launched in April 2005, it revolutionised online gaming and went straight to the top of the charts in countries all over the world. Not one to sit on its laurels, ArenaNet’s follow-up – the highly-anticipated Guild Wars Factions, released April 28, 2006 – was the number one game in both North America and Europe for the month of May.

“We’re incredibly pleased with Guild Wars’ performance in Europe,” said Max Brown, European Sales and Operations Director. “Guild Wars Prophecies was number one for 6 weeks when it launched in April 2005 now we are back with Guild Wars Factions which went number one all across Europe in its week of launch. The interesting thing we are seeing now is that Guild Wars Prophecies is back in the top ten, so the success of Guild Wars Factions is driving sales of Guild Wars Prophecies. The Guild Wars franchise offers tremendous value for money and the reappearance in the charts is a reflection of this.”
