WoW Cataclysm shifts 4.7 million copies in first month

Blizzard Entertainment, Inc. has  announced today that World of Warcraft: Cataclysm, the third expansion for the critically acclaimed MMORPG, has sold through more than 4.7 million copies in one month since its release. This also set a new record for monthly PC-game sales, blowing the previous record held by the second expansion, WoW: Wrath of the Lich King.

It is fairly unsurprising given the game’s widespread popularity. Dedicated fans of World of Warcraft even prised themselves from their computers to queue up at special launch events around the globe when the game released simultaneously in the United States, Canada, Mexico, Argentina, Chile, Europe, Russia, Southeast Asia, Australia, and New Zealand on December 7, and then became available in Korea and the regions of Taiwan, Hong Kong, and Macau on December 9 two days later.
