Blizzard Entertainment today announced that in the first 24 hours after Diablo III’s release, more than 3.5 million copies were sold. That number doesn’t include the 1.2 million who received the game after signing up for the World of Warcraft Annual Pass promotion.

“Altogether, more than 4.7 million gamers around the world were poised to storm Sanctuary on day 1 of Diablo III’ s release – representing the biggest PC-game launch in history.

As of the first week of the game’s availability, that number had already grown to more than 6.3 million. The above figures also do not include players in Korean Internet game rooms, where Diablo III has become the top-played game, achieving a record share of more than 39% as of May 22 according to Game Metrics.”
