Diablo Immortal Sales Reached $24 Million in 14 Days

According to a market analysis website, publisher Blizzard Diablo Immortal posted sales of approximately $24 million in the first two weeks since its release on June 2, 2022. There is a negative success against this: Up metric the title ranks as the worst rated game ever.

8.5 million mobile players spend $24 million

If you look at the figures of the market analysis tool app magic Blizzard celebrates financial success with Diablo Immortal. In the period from June 2 to June 16, 2022, the company is said to have earned about $ 24 million, which corresponds to almost 23 million euros, with the mobile version of Diablo Immortal. The comparison with Hearthstone reveals the seemingly lucrative nature of the action RPG: Blizzard is said to have made some $5 million by May 2022 from the online trading card game released in 2014.

Appmagic, meanwhile, allows for a further breakdown of the sum by operating systems and countries. iOS mobile devices account for $13 million, while Android devices account for the remaining $11 million. At about 43 percent, almost half of the turnover comes from the US, 23 percent from South Korea, and eight percent from Japan. Players from Germany are said to have contributed six percent of the revenue. In terms of downloads, the site has about 8.5 million installs on Android and iOS so far. Blizzard was already on display on June 10, 2022, on Twitter has more than 10 million downloads — whether the difference is just due to the PC version or whether Appmagic’s numbers are incomplete remains to be seen. In any case, Blizzard refers to the most successful start of the series.

Criticism of monetization affects user score

On the other hand, this statement about the ratings is not at all correct: the sometimes aggressive monetization with microtransactions does not go down well with players, instead gacha mechanics generate a lot of criticism. Diablo fans in particular are so upset that Diablo Immortal was sometimes the lowest-rated game ever by players on Metacritic. The title still scores with a user rating of only 0.3/10 points bottom of the list all registered games.
