World of Warcraft: Cataclysm



In its first 24 hours of availability, more than 3.3 million copies of World of Warcraft: Cataclysm were sold, including digital pre-orders. According to Blizzard, that makes it the fastest-selling PC game of all time.

“We had to bring Azeroth to the brink of destruction in Cataclysm, but the result was our best expansion yet,” said Blizzard CEO Mike Morhaime in a press release. “We want to thank all of our new, existing, and returning players throughout the world for their incredible enthusiasm and support, and we look forward to hearing what they think about all the new content.”

The 3.3 million mark beats out the record set by the previous WoW expansion pack, Wrath of the Lich King, which sold 2.8 million copies when it was released in November 2008. The first expansion, The Burning Crusade, sold 2.4 million copies on its first day.
