And so goes the people who are waiting for the day that a new World of Warcraft expansion's release doesn't sell like hotcakes and re-invigorates a player base, to proclaim the series' demise. Back to wherever they reside. A basement probably. So yeah, World of Warcraft: Legion sold 3.3 million copies in its launch week, making it one of the fastest selling PC game of all time, matching records set by previous expansions.
And in terms of numbers, World of Warcraft has seen its highest point since the 2010 launch of the Cataclysm expansion.
"It’s been a thrill to see players hunting demons, powering up Artifacts, and freely exploring all the new zones in Legion," said Mike Morhaime, CEO and cofounder of Blizzard Entertainment. "We worked hard to make this the best World of Warcraft expansion yet, and we look forward to providing players with even more content as Legion’s epic story unfolds in the months ahead."
The content won't be stopping anytime soon either, with a 7.1 patch in the works that sends players back to the iconic Karazhan location
