News: And the best selling PC game of the year after one day.



Fans of the first game may have had to wait more than ten years for a sequel, but those same fans have made StarCraft II: Wings of Liberty the fastest-selling strategy game of all time, according to Blizzard. All told, the game sold over a million copies on day one and over 1.5 million in its first 48 hours of availability. These sales numbers easily make it the bestselling PC game of the year so far.

"We launched StarCraft II in 11 different languages and on 5 different continents because we wanted to make sure as many players as possible were able to log on and play on day one," said Mike Morhaime, CEO and cofounder of Blizzard Entertainment. "We're pleased that so many people around the world have already picked up a copy of the game, and we look forward to welcoming even more players to Battle.net in the weeks and months ahead."

"GameStop had more than 3,000 stores open at midnight, so our StarCraft players got a jump start on playing the epic experience Blizzard consistently delivers with its games," said Bob McKenzie, senior vice president of merchandising at GameStop. StarCraft II: Wings of Liberty is officially GameStop's fastest-selling PC game since Blizzard launched World of Warcraft: Wrath of the Lich King in 2008."

We'll have more on StarCraft II, including our full review, very soon.
