Danish game developer Reto-Moto has invested years in their World War II MMO first-person shooter, Heroes & Generals – and that dedication has been rewarded with a massive following.
Late last week Heroes & Generals, stand-alone for PCs via Steam and in a browser-based version, surpassed seven million registered players, according to the studio.
“To reach seven million players and to witness the solid growth of the Heroes & Generals community verifies our belief that World War II is a popular setting,” said Reto-Moto game director Jacob Andersen in a press release. “For a Danish development team (this) is a cool and magic milestone, as it’s more than there are people living in our home country. (This) really boosts our motivation to deliver a deep, fun and unique war game for our established and dedicated community (as well as) new players all over the world.”

The game also has a companion app, Heroes & Generals: Mobile Command, that supports the strategy part of the title. Learn more at www.heroesandgenerals.com.
Danish developer Reto-Moto was founded in 1997 and quickly transformed into IO Interactive, which went on to release Hitman and Freedom Fighters. After the sale of IO Interactive to Eidos in 2004, the original Reto-Moto studio was reformed in central Copenhagen. Their inaugural game Heroes & Generals has been released for PC on Steam and is currently in open beta.
