Perfect World released a video today celebrating the fact that its popular free-to-play MMO Neverwinter now has 15 million registered players across all its platforms. Since the game launched in 2013, that makes about 5 million players per year.
In honor of the event, Dungeons and Dragons’ brand director Nathan Stewart said that the game’s success shows just how strong the D&D community is.
“Partnering with Cryptic and Perfect World to bring our annual stories to life in such a visibly stunning way has allowed D&D players to experience the Forgotten Realms like never before.”
If the registered users number is anywhere close to the actual players number, this is great news for the developer — as well as fans who benefit from a thriving community.
