Diablo IV Dets Blizzard Record, But No Concrete Sales Figures Disclosed

As the gaming industry continues to grow, it is no surprise that Diablo IV has become Blizzard Entertainment’s fastest-selling game. Still, it’s only fitting that sales figures should be provided. However, they didn’t…


Activision Blizzard has also announced that the new Diablo IV has achieved its most prominent pre-launch sales figures on both PC and consoles, with the game officially released yesterday for PlayStation 5, Xbox Series, PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC on Battle.net, with over 93 million hours played in the early access period that started on June 1. That equates to more than 10,000 years.

In a press release, Rod Fergusson, Diablo general manager, wrote, “This is a moment years in the making for the Diablo IV team. We’re extremely proud to offer players the richest story ever told in a Diablo game. Players have a range of choices, including personal character customization, equipping personalized skills for battling horrific demons, or collecting Legendary loot to support their playstyle while discovering new ones. Since the game was first announced in 2019, the support from millions of players worldwide drove us toward this release of our dark vision of Sanctuary. Hail Lilith, Blessed Mother.”

Blizzard Entertainment president Mike Ybarra added, “Our vision at Blizzard is to create legendary experiences for all to share, and Diablo IV is an incredible realization of that vision. With highly customizable gameplay, gripping storytelling, and plenty of options around engaging with the world, this masterfully crafted expression of the Diablo universe is an outstanding example of what our talented development teams are capable of. Whether you’re a series veteran or diving into Sanctuary for the first time, we welcome players to the global launch of Diablo IV.”

Diablo III first came out for PC only, and now, the sequel is getting a five-platform release. It’s no wonder it’s a record-breaker (but how many have been sold? they won’t say). Unfortunately, it’s a live service game, so you can’t play it offline, making it impossible to preserve…
