Selling four times its predecessor in just one week, Anno 1800 is the latest installment of the successful city-building franchise and the fastest-selling Anno game to date.
“Anno 1800 has been an incredible journey for all the people working at Ubisoft Blue Byte and we are so happy to see that players really enjoy playing our game. Since the announcement of the game, the community of Anno 1800 has provided us with endless useful feedback through our community platform Anno Union and helped us release an excellent game.” said Benedikt Grindel, Managing Director at Ubisoft Blue Byte.
Ahead of the launch of Anno 1800, players were invited to assist Ubisoft in creating the best Anno title yet, giving feedback through the games online forum, Anno Union. The site has seen more than 160 blogs have been published, 15,000 comments posted and 5 community contests organized. It’s easy to understand how this must have helped shape the development of Anno 1800.
“We really feel privileged to have one of the most committed communities in the video game industry. After this amazing and successful launch, we now completely focus on delivering the best post-launch content possible for Anno 1800 and can’t wait to show you more!” continued Grindel.
