Those stats include 2.7 billion demons killed since Early Access began. Players themselves have died over 316 million times and over 5 million of those were deaths by the Butcher. 5,792,063 deaths, to be specific (as of their cutoff time). For those who are willing to risk it all, 163 players have hit 100 in Hardcore. There are over 6,000 level 100 players not playing on Hardcore. All during the first week. 

To mark the successful launch, to thank players and to chat about everything that has been going on, community feedback, and all things Diablo IV, the team will hold its first Campfire Chat on June 16th. This is the first big post-launch team event with community feedback opportunities and a look ahead,  so if you've been hanging out in Sanctuary and want to know a little more, here's the chance.

The event will start at 11:00 a.m. Pacific time / 1:00 p.m. Eastern,  and you'll be able to tune in on the Diablo Twitch and YouTube channels.
