Newsbrief: As MMO studio ArenaNet and its parent company NCSoft gear up to release Guild Wars 2 in the lucrative Chinese market later this year, the companies today revealed that their flagship MMORPG is "the fastest-selling MMO in history."

The popular game has now sold more than 3 million copies across Europe and North America in the first nine months of its availability, which NCSoft says is a record-breaking statistic when compared to other MMOs in the space.

What this means is that the Chinese release is looking rather exciting for the company. Similar franchises to Guild Wars have taken off when released in China, and NCSoft will be hoping for a similar story here.
