Vivendi has sent word today that World of Warcraft: The Burning Crusade has sold 100,000 units in Australia and New Zealand.
According to Jill Maxwell, merchandising manager at EB Games Australia, "Not only was The Burning Crusade the highest pre-selling game for EB Games ever, but it has also gone on to be the fastest-selling PC game ever. Blizzard clearly delivered on its promise to Australian and New Zealand fans, as witnessed by the incredible sales achieved from launch. We look forward to the ongoing success of this hugely successful franchise."
That wasn't the only good news for WoW though: it turns out there are now more than 8.5 million subscribers to World of Warcraft. The Burning Crusade sold through approximately 3.5 million units within one month in North America, Europe, Australia, New Zealand, Singapore, Thailand, and Malaysia.
"We're thrilled about the overwhelming response that we've received for The Burning Crusade," said Mike Morhaime, president of Blizzard Entertainment. "We have worked hard to build upon nearly every aspect of World of Warcraft with this expansion, and it's gratifying to see that players and reviewers are enjoying the new content."
