Cataclysm Sells Big in First Month
Blizzard’s third expansion for the award winning World of Warcraft, Cataclysm, has sold big. 4.7 million big, to be a little more precise. The huge sales have once again broken PC records, this time for copies sold within the first month.
With more than 12 million paying subscribers it would seem that less than half of the player base have upgraded to Cataclysm, leaving the door open for a large number of future sales.
Mike Morhaime, CEO and co-founder of Blizzard Entertainment had this to say:
“We created thousands of new quests, introduced new lands to explore and extensively revamped the game world for World of Warcraft: Cataclysm,making it our biggest and most ambitious expansion yet. We’ve been floored by the community’s response so far, and we’d like to thank them for their continued passion and support for World of Warcraft, and for helpingCataclysm reach this incredible milestone.”
So there you have it, Cataclysm sold big. Who would have guessed?!
