When it comes to a game company that rolls out surefire hits one after another, you can be sure that Blizzard is a name which would pop up in the minds of many, as their track record have been more or less impeccable. It does not matter if we are talking about a fantasy world of Orcs and Humans, or to see a future in space where alien factions war against one another and the human race, or a mystical past where magic and mayhem rule, Blizzard has created legends along the way, and the Diablo franchise has proved to be extremely popular over the years. So popular that, Activision claims Diablo 3 has already sold 20 million copies – and counting.
This is possible since as of November last year, it had already shifted

Sure, Blizzard’s World of Warcraft active subscriber numbers might have dropped to 6.8 million, but this does not place Blizzard in a precarious financial position, as it is but a natural growth and death cycle of a particular franchise.
