Diablo IV surpasses 12 million players

Diablo IV has undoubtedly been one of the biggest games of the year, both as a result of its pre-launch hype and post-launch performance. Alongside the announcement of the game’s second Season, Blizzard revealed that in the 2+ months since its release, Diablo IV has surpassed 12 million players.

Announced by Rod Fergusson during their on-stage presentation at Gamescom’s Opening Night Live showcase, the general manager for Diablo IV revealed the game’s second major update – Season of Blood.

That is not all however, as during this talk, Fergusson also revealed that the game had already surpassed 12 million players. While they did not specify how many copies had been sold, Diablo IV currently is not available on any game subscription platforms, and so the total copies sold is likely not too far off from the aforementioned figure.

For comparison, since its launch back in 2012, Diablo III has officially surpassed 65 million players, with at least 30 million copies sold. Of course, the game took quite a while to reach such numbers, and so it will be interesting to see where Diablo IV is at one year from its launch and beyond.
