Starcraft II Sold 721,000 units in the States in the first 48 hours of its release

Posted By | On 13th, Aug. 2010

After selling 1.5 million units in 48 hours next weak, Starcraft II officially became the fastest selling RTS of all time. Today, along with the July NPD Figures, the NPD Group also announced that around 721,000 units out of those 1.5 million of Starcraft II were sold for the PC and the Mac in the States alone, and this figure is only for the boxed retail copies, not the virtual copies that one can download from Blizzard’s Online Store.

Starcraft II has officially become the bestselling PC game of 2010, but this is nothing in comparision to what the future has in store for Blizzard’s sci-fi real time strategy game. Analysts predict that the game will have sold a total of 6.5 million copies soon.
