Diablo 3 slår försäljningsrekord

award_winnersEn vecka efter releasen avslöjar Blizzard försäljningssiffrorna för Diablo 3, som härmed kan titulera sig som det snabbast säljande PC-spelet genom tiderna.

Bara 24 timmar efter lanseringen hade Diablo 3 sålts i mer än 3,5 miljoner exemplar. Resultatet innefattar inte de 1,2 miljoner spelare som fick spelet via Annual Pass för World of Warcraft, vilket innebär att det totala antalet Diablo 3-spelare efter den första veckan uppgår till sensationella 6,3 miljoner spelare, en siffra som motsvarar Israels hela befolkning.

Företagets VD, Mike Morhaime, tackar fansen för engagemanget och ber samtidigt om ursäkt för det tekniska strulet under releasenatten.

“We’re definitely thrilled that so many people around the world were excited to pick up their copy of Diablo III and jump in the moment it went live,” said Mike Morhaime, CEO and cofounder of Blizzard Entertainment. “We also regret that our preparations were not enough to ensure everyone had a seamless experience when they did so. I want to reaffirm our commitment to make sure the millions of Diablo III players out there have a great experience with the game moving forward, and I also want to thank them for their ongoing support. ”

”Regarding today’s announcement, we recognize that setting a new launch record is a big achievement,” Morhaime continued. “However, we’re especially proud of the gameplay feedback we’ve received from players worldwide. We’re pleased that Diablo III has lived up to players’ high expectations, and we’re looking forward to welcoming more players into Sanctuary in the days ahead.”
