The Blizzard bank manager will be happy thanks to the sales of their latest StarCraft 2 title Heart of the Swarm as it’s managed to sell 1.1 million copies in the first two days of release through digital and retail sales.

“We want to thank the global StarCraft community for the incredible passion and support they’ve shown for Heart of the Swarm,” said Mike Morhaime, CEO and cofounder of Blizzard Entertainment. “In addition to a brand-new single-player campaign, we added a ton of enhancements with this expansion to make StarCraft II even more fun to play, and more exciting to watch. We’re pleased to see gamers and eSports fans around the world enjoying Heart of the Swarm.”

Back in 2012 StarCraft Wings of Liberty sold 1.5 million units in the first 48 hours so it looks like Blizzard has managed to retain the fanatical StarCraft audience based on today’s numbers.

Viewers also tuned into their global launch broadcasts in their droves with 1.1 million viewers tuning in proving that viewers and casters are back in full swing on Twitch which is good news for the broadcast platform.
