Blizzard did the numbers and shows that World of Warcraft Legion peaked at 3.3 million sales within the first 24 hours of its launch. This isn’t really a record breaker since World of Warcraft Cataclysm (2010) did the same thing.
What seems to break the record though is that Legion did top the concurrent player count.
These numbers do show that all of the devs of WoW Legion’s hard work did pay off. As said by Mike Morhaime, Blizzard’s CEO “We worked hard to make this the best World of Warcraft expansion yet, and we look forward to providing players with even more content as Legion’s epic story unfolds in the months ahead”.
In other news, World of Warcraft Legion is getting a new patch – Return to Karazhan. It will come with a new five player mythic dungeon, Trial of Valor – a brand new raid, and additional new quests. A specific date has not been announced yet, but it surely will be out very soon.
Congratulations to World of Warcraft Legion for this feat. Is this something that surprises you? Or something that is expected. Tell us in the comments what you think.
