Guild Wars 2 hit 1 million pre-release sales

400,000 peak concurrent users during headstart phase

Guild Wars 2 released today but already it has some sales and user numbers it can be proud of.


NCsoft promised pre-order customers early access to the game in return for their commitment, and this proved enough for a million of you to fork out, according to the developer.

And during the headstart phase, the Guild Wars 2 servers hit a peak of 400,000 concurrent users, says NCSoft (thanks PC Gamer).
