In recent weeks, Diablo 4 has proven to be a huge success. In fact, despite the fact that Diablo Immortal was also a huge hit, Diablo IV made more money in a single week than it did in a whole year. ‘Blown out of the water’ comes to mind.
The game Diablo 4 was released to acclaim and has already become Blizzard’s fastest-selling title ever. Even if people are experiencing nightmares while playing on hardcore mode, which is to be anticipated given that it is tough mode, players appear to be enjoying it as well. Due to a server outage, one player lost their character after levelling up to 100, and another lost 24 hours of progress after passing out. Someone else glitched out of a loading screen and lost an incredible 173 hours of work. However, players are still eager to plunge into the mayhem. Sales data support this.
Watch Diablo IV in action down below.
Recent sales figures for Diablo IV have been revealed to have exceeded $666 million, which is an extraordinarily appropriate amount for a game with the slogan “Welcome to Hell.” The fact that it was completed in five days suggests that the current real profits figure is significantly greater. However, according to VG247, it’s expected that Diablo Immortal brought in about $525 million in its first year. You can clearly tell the difference.
While Diablo Immortal is a free-to-play mobile game, Diablo IV is a paid release. However, the latter made news in 2017 as a result of in-game microtransactions, which is how the $525 million was made. One player boasted publicly that they had dropped a staggering $100,000 on the game, but they afterwards griped about not receiving any more in-game matches. Someone calculated that completely upgrading your character would cost about £88,000 in total.
Due to their loot box rules, some nations barred the game. When it was initially released, Diablo IV’s user score fell to the lowest in Metacritic history, therefore it has undoubtedly and rightfully turned the franchise around. It’s a wonderful game.
Sales of Diablo 4 reached $666 million in just five days.
The beginning of Diablo IV has been genuinely amazing. Every time I refresh my social media stream, I get the impression that someone is watching it, and that speaks for itself.
However, you don’t have to take it from my Twitter scrolling experience. It was announced that Diablo IV is Blizzard’s fastest selling game ever just one day after the game’s release on June 6 (it was technically released earlier if you paid for early access, but let’s just go with that). When you consider the popularity of Overwatch at the time of its first release, I find it to be very amazing.
Anyway, it goes without saying that a lot of sales equal a lot of money, and it has just been revealed that Diablo IV made more than $500 million in sales in less than a week. In fact, it reached a fairly appropriate $666 million in just five days, according to TweakTown.
That amount is undoubtedly higher now that more time has gone, and it’s also important to bear in mind that it only includes income from complete game sales; in-game payments for the game’s different cosmetics were left out. That will inevitably result in significantly more money overall.
Additionally, it has been discovered that gamers have already invested a staggering 276 million hours in Diablo IV, which is a lot. Players have murdered 316 million times since the game’s early access launch, but they have also slain 276 billion demons. However, as of right now, only 163 players have been able to complete Hardcore mode’s highest level, so if you’re one of them, you should give yourself a huge pat on the back.
