We reported at the weekend that Guild Wars 2 received over one million sign-ups during their public Beta test and this evening they fired out some more information, which showed that during peak periods, they were recieving more that 4000 applications per minute.
If you were ever in any doubt that this is the MMO gamers are really wanting to get their hands on, this pretty much confirms it. In our recent RPGReporter.com poll which wrapped up today, Guild Wars 2 streaked ahead of the competition making it our most anticipated MMO of 2012 as voted for ny the readers.
ArenaNet’s CEO Mike O’Brien added
“We built Guild Wars 2 with the notion to bring players together to experience what a true online world experience should be, and we couldn’t be more excited with the reception we’re receiving from gamers wanting to get in and play our game.”
With more Beta weekends no doubt planned for the weeks ahead, we’ll be leeping you up to date with all the developments here and on GWOnline.
