Diablo III: Reaper Of Souls Sells 3 Million Units

Posted Thu, Apr 03, 2014 by Lewis B

According to the latest press release from Blizzard, Reaper of Souls has sold over 2.7 million copies. Hardly unsurprising. What I find most interesting in all of this (it'll have sold well over 3 million by now) is the fact that they royally messed up the first version of Diablo III and are only now beginning to get it back to something players originally wanted. What I still find frustrating about the product however is the fact I have no care for my character. A lack of customisation and personalisation just totally puts me off the game, even with all the improvements.

The official press release goes a little something like this:

On March 25, players the world over launched a crusade against the fallen angel with the release of Diablo III: Reaper of Souls™ for Windows® and Mac®. As of the first week of the expansion’s availability, more than 2.7 million copies have sold-through online and at retailers worldwide.*

Players, community personalities, and members of the press joined Blizzard to celebrate the expansion’s release on the evening of March 24 at launch parties in Seoul, Taipei, Warsaw, Stockholm, and Los Angeles. The icy grasp of the Angel of Death reached players around the world through live streams from several of the events, with total Diablo III views on Twitch on launch day alone exceeding 2.4 million.†

Either way it means Blizzard are now once again rolling around in piles of money. Are you liking Reaper of Souls and the changes it has made? You can find the press release here.
