The subscription-free MMO Guild Wars has reached its fourth birthday, and now ArenaNet is even more happy to reveal its sold over 6 million copies.
Shifting that many copies has proven the free-to-play model is "a big hit with gamers," says studio boss Mike O'Brien. Let good times be free.
"We are humbled by how gamers have responded to Guild Wars over the past four years, and we are proud that the game and its community have helped to continually shape, define, and expand the genre," said ArenaNet studio head Mike O’Brien.
"Our subscription-free business model has proven to be a big hit with gamers, bringing an enormous and diverse online community to the game." Developers ArenaNet are busying working on Guild Wars 2, a sequel set 250 years after the timeline of the first.
