The popular MMORPG expansion has now sold more than 3.5 million copies

Blizzard Entertainment announced that The Burning Crusade, the first expansion for the popular World of Warcraft game, has sold more than 3.5 million copies in a little bit more than a month, following the North America launch in January.  The game sold around 2.4 million copies the first 24 hours that it was available to gamers -- more copies sold in 24 hours compared to any PC game’s sales record spanning an entire month.

 "We're thrilled about the overwhelming response that we've received for The Burning Crusade," said Mike Morhaime, president of Blizzard Entertainment.

The WoW user base has reached 8.5 million users worldwide, with the game creeping up on being the world's first and only MMORPG that has 10 million users.

The sales numbers for the WoW expansion are large compared to even popular stand alone PC titles from other companies.  The sales numbers should continue to increase because Blizzard is now working on localizing content for mainland China, Hong Kong, Macau and Taiwan -- no official launch date has been set.  China remains the single largest market for WoW, so sales numbers should rapidly increase one the expansion is released.
