ArenaNet, the developer of Guild Wars 2, has revealed that in just 48 hours, over one million users signed up for the Guild Wars 2 beta.
The beta is due to begin in Spring, with the sign-ups ending at 6pm GMT yesterday. The news was confirmed via the developer's official Twitter account for Guild Wars 2.
Publisher NCSoft also revealed recently that Guild Wars 2 would be coming to home consoles, as well as the PC, where the first game was released exclusively.
Despite all of this news, neither NCSoft of ArenaNet would be drawn on when the game will actually release. It is expected at some point this year, but nothing definitive has been stated.
