World of Warcraft: Cataclysm Downloads Create Opening Day Record

Blizzard Entertainment, the developers of the popular World Of Warcraft game have announced that the latest version in the series has created a new opening day sales record by notching more than 3.3 million copies. This beats the earlier record created by World of Warcraft: Wrath of the Lich King that sold more than 2.8 million copies in the first 24 hours back in November 2008.

One of the obvious reasons behind the hot-opening day sale numbers has been the simultaneous launch of the game in as many as ten markets – including United States and South East Asia where the game enjoys tremendous popularity. The game was available in more than 10,000 stores on the opening day.

World of Warcraft is one of the most popular MMORPGs with a worldwide following of over 12 million players.
