One Million Sold, 400k Concurrent Users During Head Start - MMORPG.com

ArenaNet and NCSoft have sent word of some astonishing statistics to greet today's release of Guild Wars 2. Over a million players prepaid for the game allowing them access to the 3-day head start program. Additionally, over 400,000 players were on GW2 servers concurrently over the course of the early start.

“This is the culmination of a 5-year journey and to be greeted by this level of enthusiasm by our fans is truly amazing,” said Mike 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.”
