Blizzard: StarCraft 2 sold over 3 million in first month

Blizzard Entertainment issued a press release this morning to report that over 3 million copies of StarCraft 2 have been sold worldwide in the game's first month of release. While it's always wise to approach publisher estimates with a measure of skepticism, we must admit that this milestone seems plausible. The game sold half that amount in its first two days on the market, leaving the rest of the month to sell that same amount.

"We appreciate all the enthusiasm that players around the world have shown for StarCraft 2," Blizzard CEO Mike Morhaime said. "It was important to us to deliver an overall gameplay experience that was accessible, balanced, and fun, and it's been gratifying to see how strongly the global community has already embraced the game." Not that the people who bought it on day one were concerned with accessibility, after years of training on the first StarCraft.
