We’re ArenaNet—we’ve created a studio that builds online worlds infused with innovation, hand-crafted excellence, and creative passion. We're not the only ones who share this passion; gamers made Guild Wars 2 the fastest selling MMO in the West with more than 3 million copies sold in its first 9 months, and players and press have consistently called it one of the best games of all time.
Online worlds are an always-on service for our players. ArenaNet’s build team takes great pride in maintaining systems that can keep pace with our live games, with a focus on predictability and stability.
