As of yesterday afternoon, one million people signed up for the Guild Wars 2 beta. The official Twitter account for the game broke the good news, and ArenNet posted a video of the studio celebrating the milestone on Facebook. Sign ups ended at 6pm UK time, and open beta testing will go live this spring, with the game releasing later this year.
