Developer ArenaNet and publisher NCsoft have jointly announced that the subscription-free online PC role-playing games Guild Wars and Guild Wars Factions have sold more than two million units worldwide. In addition, Guild Wars Factions was the top selling PC game in North America and Europe for the month of May. “The highly successful release of Guild Wars Factions has solidified the Guild Wars franchise as a mainstay with gamers,” said Bob McKenzie, senior VP of merchandising for GameStop. “As a top seller for GameStop and EBGames, we watch with high interest how this property continues to make a stronghold for itself in the marketplace.” Patrick Wyatt, co-founder of ArenaNet added: “ArenaNet continues to take chances in both game design and business model, and it’s great to have the fans respond so enthusiastically right out of the gate with Guild Wars Factions. Our fans have been overwhelmingly supportive of Guild Wars, and we will continue to make the Guild Wars franchise bigger and better with each release.” Support for the franchise continues to grow, as currently more than 7000 guilds worldwide are competing in the Guild Wars Factions tournament season, the finalists of which will be flown to Leipzig, Germany in August to compete for more than $100,000 in cash and prizes.
