Diablo III is the all-time fastest selling PC game

In a press release today, Blizzard announced that Diablo III set the all-time record for the fastest selling PC game. At the time, having been released for only 24 hours, the epically popular and anticipated action RPG had sold over 3.5 million copies.

Blizzard CEO, Mike Morhaime, expressed regret at the fact that not every player was able to play initially due to server issues. While those issues became all the talk quite quickly, Diablo III has received very favourable reviews in the early going. The positive reception is reflected in the fact that the sales number has climbed steadily since the first day of release, and has already exceeded the 6.3 million mark.

It has become quite clear that Blizzard has added yet another success to their gaming repertoire. In order to read the full press release, click here.
