Blizzard Entertainment has announced that Diablo 3 has sold 14 million copies globally since its launch on PC in 2012.
The figure accounts for all versions of the game, not just the original release; the game hit PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 in September of this year, after all.
Blizzard head honcho Mike Morhaime commented, “We’re pleased with the response to the game’s launch on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.
“Lifetime sell-through of the game across all platforms has reached over 14 million copies, and reviews have been very positive about how the game plays on console.”
"Much of the praise has been centred on changes we made to the loot system and our decision to keep the auction house off of the console platform," Morhaime added.
"Players and critics alike have noted that these changes have resulted in a more fun and satisfying game experience. That reaction factored in our decision to remove the auction houses from the PC version of Diablo 3 effective next March, which players have also responded very positively to."
