- Players have built over 10 million ships,
- Players have built over 1 billion grain fields,
- Over 3 million islands have been settled.
Benedikt Grindel, Managing Director at Ubisoft Blue Byte, pointed out that ‘they are now completely focused on delivering the best post-launch content possible for Anno 1800.’
