Blizzard Entertainment has announced that the Battle for Azeroth expansion to World of Warcraft has scored a new Day-One sales record by moving 3.4M copies on August 14th. Seemingly, this does not include units pre-ordered prior to launch day. This makes BfA the "fastest-selling WoW expansion ever" and makes it "one of the fastest-selling PC games of all time".
“Battle for Azeroth is a definitive chapter in the Horde and Alliance conflict at the heart of Warcraft, and it’s been thrilling to see players representing their factions in record numbers and embarking on their war campaigns—not to mention joining in ourselves,” said Mike Morhaime, CEO and cofounder of Blizzard Entertainment. “But the launch is just the beginning of this conflict. More epic content is coming to World of Warcraft in the weeks ahead, and we can’t wait for players to experience the full story as it unfolds over the course of the expansion.”
In the coming few weeks, BfA players can look forward to a number of new things including:
- Stromgarde Warfront - 20 player co-op on September 4th
- Season 1 PvP on September 5th
- Mythic Keystone Dungeon Season 1 on September 4th
