WoW: Shadowlands Becomes Fastest Selling Game of All Time

The Shadowlands expansion released by Blizzard for World Of Warcraft recently broke the record. World Of Warcraft: Shadowlands has managed to become the fastest selling game of all time.

When you think about how old World of Warcraft is, you can expect a decrease in the number of people continuing to play the game, and you are right. But with the release of the Shadowlands expansion, Blizzard seems to be facing a new wave of players.

World of Warcraft: Shadowlands was apparently the fastest selling PC game of all time. According to Activision, WoW: Shadowlands managed to sell more than 3.7 million units worldwide in the first 24 hours of launch. The previous record was for Diablo 3, another Blizzard game that sold 3.5 million on its first day.

But Shadowlands‘ success is more impressive. Although it has a promotional period of more than 10 years; being able to sell such units in just 24 hours is a great success. Activision said World of Warcraft had the highest number of players in monthly or long-term subscriptions compared to previous expansions until the release of the expansion.

Also, prominent names in the game world so far have praised the expansion. While the game missed its release date, many players reacted positively to the game, which seems like a much better expansion than others.
