For the past couple of years, EVE Online
and World of Tanks
have been duking it out to see which game can outfox the other in the hunt for the MMORPG peak concurrent user record. As of this week there may be a new contender for the crown if ZT Online 2's
open beta period is any indication.
The game is a sequel to Giant Interactive's
popular ZT Online
martial arts title, and the recent open beta period featured an impressive 435,000 simultaneous players online. Gamasutra
has the details, culled from a Giant press release, and the company also indicates that approximately 400 developers have worked on the title over the past three years.
