NCsoft’s Aion Could be the Biggest MMO Release of the Year

In what is being touted as the “biggest MMO launch of the year” by publisher NCsoft, the new PC title Aion has reached nearly 400,000 units pre-ordered. Aion has apparently been uniquely designed to appeal to western gamers, and you can read Gerald’s recent preview right here.

Already topping preorder sales charts, securing accolades from major media outlets, garnering event awards, including gamescom 2009’s “Best Online Game” and PAX’s “Best MMO” by Inside Gaming, and receiving rave reviews from players in the game’s beta testing, Aion has steadily built its reputation as the biggest MMO release in recent years.

Folks that have already parted with cash for their pre-order will be able to get first dibs on a server via the server pre-selection which has kicked off today. Additionally, a two-day headstart program will begin on Sunday (September 20th) ahead of the game’s regular retail release.

Personally I don’t think it “could be” I think it will be. With over 400.000 per-orders alone, Aion will most probably the biggest MMO release of the year.

What does anyone else think of this matter?
