We’ve seen Neverwinter grow so much since it first entered Open Beta and can’t wait to share what the game has in store for adventurers in the near future.”

“The success of Neverwinter on so many platforms and in so many countries shows how strong the D&D global community is,” said Nathan Stewart, Brand Director of Dungeons & Dragons. “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.”

“We look forward to continuing our development and realization of the Forgotten Realms to deliver a steady stream of new and exciting content to all our players,” said Gordon Fong, executive producer on Neverwinter. “Whether they are hardcore D&D enthusiasts, MMO players sharing experiences with friends, or solo RPG fans; we want Neverwinter to be a welcoming place for anyone looking for adventure and entertainment.”
