First released in 1998, the franchise has had five main games, multiple adaptations, and a highly successful browser game. The franchise has sold more than 5 million copies worldwide with its most recent installment, ANNO 2070, surpassing 1 million in sales. Two thirds of those ANNO 2070 sales came from non-German-speaking territories.
To celebrate the “ANNOversary,” Anno Online will be having a new event where players will help repair the ships of a flotilla and assist the king’s cartographer with several new quests. It also introduces two new currencies: planks and doubloons.
