The first year of Guild Wars 2 – 3.5m players and a nice Infographic

How well is Guild Wars 2 doing? Quite well it seems according to Mike O’Brien’s latest blog update which celebrates the first year of Guild Wars 2.

In the blog update Mike looks back at the first year, how they approached the game and also talks a little about the changes they have made to make the game great for players. Here’s a snip and check out he great infographic below.

[ANET]So in this first year we’ve ramped up to make Guild Wars 2 the best-supported, most-updated online world in the industry. And if you ask me what stands out most about our first year, I’ll tell you, I think the number one thing we accomplished was reorienting our company to be able to update the game so much. In the first eight months after launch we shipped eight major releases, and then in the subsequent four months we shipped eight more major releases. We’re releasing new content every two weeks. Think about the power of that. We’re now updating Guild Wars 2 about five times as often as the typical MMO.[/ANET]
