Blizzard's new add-on to World of Warcraft breaks all sales records. On the first day, worldwide more than 2.8 million copies of Wrath of the Lich King were sold.
That Wrath of the Lich King would make an impact was clear long in advance. Now Blizzard announced the sales figures of the second official add-on to World of Warcraft. In the first 24 hours the game changed hands more than 2.8 million times - worldwide. In comparison, The Burning Crusade, the first official add-on, was sold "only” 2.4 million times in January 2007.
