Age of Conan Passing the “One Million Copies Shipped” Milestone
Funcom has announced that Age of Conan will pass the “One Million Copies Shipped” milestone, in less than three weeks after the launch of the game. Due to overwhelming demand Funcom’s retail partner is now re-supplying retail boxes rapidly while also including new markets to the mix. As a result of this interest from gamers, Age of Conan has for the past few weeks been claiming number one spots on the sales charts across the western world– including the US, Germany, France and the UK.
Funcom Vice President of Sales and Marketing, Morten Larssen stated:
“Sales data shows that Age of Conan is the biggest MMO launch since World of Warcraft. The numbers are very promising, and we are very proud to be one of the fastest selling PC games ever in a launch month and the biggest simultaneous Europe/US MMO launch in history.”
In the US, Age of Conan has a strong # 1 chart position and is now moving past the 500,000 shipped mark. Meanwhile across the globe, 8 million unique visitors from over 200 countries have visited the Age of Conan websites so far in 2008 with over 800,000 signing up as members of the “Clan of Conan” fan club.
Pretty cool. When Age of Conan FINALLY finishes downloading on my computer, maybe I will be able to get on it too.
