Info on the Reaper of Souls expansion to be revealed this weekend at Blizzcon.
According to Blizzard Entertainment, Diablo 3 has managed to sell more than 14 million copies across the platforms it has been released on thus far, which includes its original PC release and the recent PS3 and Xbox 360 launches.
In an investor call, Blizzard boss Mike Morhaime stated that, “We’re pleased with the response to the game’s launch on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. Lifetime sell-through of the game across all platforms has reached over 14 million copies, and reviews have been very positive about how the game plays on console.
“Much of the praise has been centred on changes we made to the loot system and our decision to keep the auction house off of the console platform. Players and critics alike have noted that these changes have resulted in a more fun and satisfying game experience. That reaction factored in our decision to remove the auction houses from the PC version of Diablo 3 effective next March, which players have also responded very positively to.”
Diablo 3 will have a new expansion pack in 2014, Reaper of Souls, which will release on PC and PS4. Blizzard will reveal more about the same at this weekend at Blizzcon.
