Diablo 4 Had 10 Million Players In June, DLC Making “Strong Progress”
To say the launch of Diablo 4 was a success would be a massive understatement. According to Activision Blizzard, the launch of the latest game in the franchise was so good that it says Diablo 4 had more than 10 million players in June.
“As of the end of the second quarter, Diablo IV had sold-through more units than any other Blizzard title at an equivalent stage of release,” Activision Blizzard said when reporting its second-quarter earnings.
In addition to the number of players, Activision Blizzard says that more than 700 million hours were played in June.
Diablo 4 Season 1: Season of the Malignant starts on July 20. Those looking to see what it has to offer will need to create a new character separate from their main story character.
The company plans new seasons each quarter for the game as part of its “live service plan designed to deeply engage the Diablo community and create opportunities for continued player investment.”
Lastly, the company says that it is making “strong progress” on upcoming expansions to Diablo 4 that will give players “major new features and continue the game’s acclaimed narrative for many years to come”.
