Blizzard Entertainment released the following press release this morning.

IRVINE, Calif. - JULY 22, 2002 - Blizzard Entertainment®, a studio of the Games division of Vivendi Universal Publishing, announced today that Warcraft* III: Reign of Chaos* has surpassed 1 million units sold worldwide, according to EDI sell-through, internal company estimates, and reports from key retail accounts around the world. Over 4.4 million units of the game have been shipped to retail to satisfy demand for Warcraft III, which is now the fastest-selling PC game ever, surpassing the records set in 2000 and 2001 by two other Blizzard titles, Diablo* II and the expansion set, Diablo II: Lord of Destruction*, respectively.
After playing this game during the last couple of days, I can see why it has broken the previous game sales records. The graphics and gameplay are exquisite and the plotline quickly and effortlessly sucks you into this psuedo RTS meets RPG game. If you haven't bought it yet, do. If you can't afford it, then borrow it from a friend. After the first campaign alone, you will be searching the couch cushions for enough change to buy your own.
