Following the announcement in early August that Blizzard’s StarCraft II had sold over 1.5 million units over the course of two days, the company has now gone and revealed that the industry crushing real-time strategy game has doubled that number during its first month on sale.
If you’re a bit rubbish at ‘the Maths,’ this means that StarCraft II has sold an incredible 3 million units worldwide since its release at the end of July.
According to Blizzard, this amazing market performance builds “on the game’s momentum as the bestselling PC game of 2010 and the fastest-selling real-time strategy game of all time.”
CEO and co-founder of Blizzard Entertainment, Mike Morhaime, commented on the achievement:
“We appreciate all the enthusiasm that players around the world have shown for StarCraft II. It was important to us to deliver an overall gameplay experience that was accessible, balanced, and fun, and it’s been gratifying to see how strongly the global community has already embraced the game.”
