Activision bossman Bobby Kotick has revealed that Blizzard’s action RPG Diablo III has sold (not shipped) in excess of 10 million copies worldwide. These sales figures came up during Activision’s second quarter earnings report, during which Kotick pointed out that Diablo III is Activision’s “top-selling game overall based on enough meta, digital and retail sales in North America and Europe.” The game can enjoy that accolade for the next five days until Black Ops II is released.
Diablo III launched worldwide (with the exception of some eastern territories) on 15 May this year. That means it’s been out in the wild for 177 days to date. With sales figures like the one just revealed, Activision-Blizzard shifts (on average) 56 490 copies of Diablo III A DAY across retail and digital download.
An expansion pack was also confirmed by Blizzard’s president Mike Morhaime. That being said, Morhaime was unable to confirm a timeline for the expansion so don’t expect anything any time soon.
