NCsoft has just confirmed that its MMO sequel recently broke the 2 million sales mark a fortnight after the game’s launch.
It’s an astounding figure to say the least though not entirely unexpected given the popularity of the original. With that said, NCsoft were slightly put back due to servers issues (which disabled sales via its online store) and a shortage of retail stock.
Guild Wars 2 has also been subject to a string of rave reviews with a current Metacritic rating of 92.
However, as we know all too well, the success of any MMO isn’t simply gaged by launch reports and initial sales. World of Warcraft still boasts a playerbase of 10 million which is expected to increase with the launch of the behemoth’s fourth expansion, Mists of Pandaria.
