Starcraft II crosses 3 million mark, becomes fastest selling RTS of all-time
Blizzard disclosed that Starcraft II : Wings of Liberty has sold over 3 million copies worldwide during the first month of its release. This makes it the best selling PC game of 2010 and the fastest selling real-time strategy game of all time. It’s great to know that there’s still a healthy market for PC games and the decline in sells of PC games in general has more to do with the half-assed ports that devs provide gamers with rather than people unwilling to make purchases.
Starcraft II released on July 27th and crossed the 1 million mark in the first day of its release itself. Â The game has received worldwide acclaim from critics and gamers alike and is already in the running for the GOTY honors for 2010.
Mike Morhaime, CEO and cofounder of Blizzard Entertainment had this say on the occasion of the game crossing the 3 million mark -
“We appreciate all the enthusiasm that players around the world have shown for StarCraft II, Â It was important to us to deliver an overall gameplay experience that was accessible, balanced, and fun, and itâ€™s been gratifying to see how strongly the global community has already embraced the game.”
