Diablo 3 Sells 12 Million Worldwide


Blizzard and Activision are happily boasting that the ludicrously popular action RPG now sold 12 million copies worldwide, which was confirmed via Activision's Q4 FY2013 financial results.

"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.”

There seems to be a lot of people that are actively playing the game. A lot of my friends prefer going back to their Diablo 3 characters more often than I expected. Hm, so much for Torchlight II's fame (although that one's not doing too bad either).

What Blizzard should ask is how many copies an expansion or Diablo 4 will sell. Diablo 3 sold a lot because of 1 and 2, which were great games. Diablo 3 was however not a great game.

They're excited about the 12mill they sold because they're ashamed of the number that are still bothering to play.

Path of Exile - dozens of skills, a passive screen the size of Pluto, looks and feels more like Diablo 2 than Diablo 3 does....and it's free.

Slap the blizzard name on any product and it sells like hotcakes. DRM and bad business decisions don't matter. Thanks everybody .

Blizzard has 12 million reasons to keep putting 'always online' DRM in games :(
