Blizzard makes history in the world of MMORPG as their 2004 title World of Warcraft: Shadowlands expansion exceeded expectations.
In a recent press release, they announced that since their launch day on November 23, they were able to sell over 3.7 million copies within 24 hours.
Despite being a 16-year-old game, the World of Warcraft (WoW) community still holds as one of the most active gaming communities to date. What’s also impressive about this accomplishment is that it’s not even the base game and yet it even surpassed sales on Diablo 3 when it first came out selling 3.5 million copies.
WoW Continues To Keep The Community Engaged
Blizzard continued on to reveal more engagement records as WoW also reached and sustained its highest number of players on monthly subscriptions. Player time in-game this year to date has nearly doubled compared to the same period last year.
President of Blizzard Entertainment J. Allen Brack expressed his gratitude to the millions of players who have supported this franchise throughout the years.
Additionally, they announced their first raid, the gothic stronghold of Revendreth called Castle Nathria which is open in Normal and Heroic difficulties.

Shadowlands is the eighth expansion in World of Warcraft where players are immersed in the unexplored Warcraft afterlife where Sylvanas Windrunner and Jailer threaten the balance of life and death.
Players can choose their allegiances through the Shadowlands’ four Covenants — otherworldly shepherds of the dead, each with their own ambitions, motives, and incredible powers to claim as your own.
Test your skills as you ascend the Tower of The Damned in search of legendary gear to help the Covenant restore balance to the beyond.
You can grab a copy of World of Warcraft: Shadowlands in the Blizzard Store with the Base Edition worth $39.99, the Heroic Edition worth $59.99, and the Epic Edition worth $79.99.
