Diablo III has topped 14 million sales, Activision Blizzard has revealed. It noted that the PC version decreased in sales from its initial boom, but that effect had been partially offset by the September launch of console ports.
The sales came from the company's latest investors' conference call (via Joystiq). Blizzard didn't reveal just how much of the sales came from the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 versions, but we know that it had moved 12 million as of the start of this year. That means the console versions sold somewhere under two million during the two months it was available in this quarter, minus whatever the PC and Mac versions sold since the start of 2013. Still, the console ports were specifically mentioned as a boon to overall sales this year, so it must have been a significant chunk.
The Reaper of Souls expansion is slated to hit the console versions as well, including the upcoming PlayStation 4 port. Between another platform launch and the first major expansion, we'll probably be hearing more about its sales around this time next year.
