Both editions of the game hit top 5 sales on charts around the globe
Diablo III: Reaper of Souls is selling strongly on both the PC and consoles around the world. The PC/Mac expansion is back up to #2 on the UK PC game charts, and the Ultimate Evil Edition for consoles is also at #2 on the overall chart across all platforms. For the initial week of the UEE release, it topped the UK sales charts for all formats - the first time any Diablo game reached #1! Here is a look at how the latest Diablo III titles are selling across the globe.
Blizzard-Activision last reported that the combined Diablo III titles had sold over 20 million copies, as of June 30, 2014. With the strong sales for both the console and PC editions of Reaper of Souls, that sales number should be solidly higher in the next quarterly report!

For the second week of release, the UEE slipped to #2 on the overall UK sales charts.
- Reaper of Souls in UK - The expansion on the PC has also been selling well in the UK. With the excitement over patch 2.1 generating renewed interest, sales climbed back up and the PC expansion reached #2 on the full price PC sales chart.
