It’s now more clear than ever that World of Warcraft is the best Massively Multiplayer Online Role Playing game (MMORPG) in the world. During the first day of sales the expansion sold 3.3 million copies which is phenomenal. The expansion sold 4.7 million copies in it’s first month, adding an additional 1.4 million copies over 4 weeks.

World of Warcraft Cataclysm is now the fastest selling PC game of all time. The previous record holder was the World of Warcraft’s second expansion, Wrath of the Lich King.

“We created thousands of new quests, introduced new lands to explore, and extensively revamped the game world for World of Warcraft: Cataclysm, making it our biggest and most ambitious expansion yet,” said Mike Morhaime, CEO and cofounder of Blizzard Entertainment. “We’ve been floored by the community’s response so far, and we’d like to thank them for their continued passion and support forWorld of Warcraft, and for helping Cataclysm reach this incredible milestone.”
