If you had any doubts about the success of Blizzard's Starcraft 2, allow me to assuage them: The game is doing really well -- 1.5 million people bought the sci-fi RTS in the first 48 hours after it launched.
“We launched StarCraft II in 11 different languages and on 5 different continents because we wanted to make sure as many players as possible were able to log on and play on day one,” said Blizzard boss Mike Morhaime in a statement. “We’re pleased that so many people around the world have already picked up a copy of the game, and we look forward to welcoming even more players to Battle.net in the weeks and months ahead.”
This means that Starcraft 2 is the fastest-selling RTS game ever, according to Blizzard. It also means that many people at Blizzard are having a very nice week at work.
