Diablo III Amazon's most preordered PC game ever

Blizzard's upcoming action RPG continues to set new records of prerelease anticipation ahead of next week's official launch.


Diablo III isn't just Blizzard's most preordered effort ever; it's also Amazon.com's most preordered PC game of all time.

Gamers are welcoming this devil's arrival with open arms (and wallets).

A representative with the online retailer told GameSpot this morning that the action role-playing game today became the site's most preordered PC game of all time, beating out previous Blizzard efforts like Starcraft II and World of Warcraft: Cataclysm.

The news follows yesterday's announcement by Activision Blizzard that Diablo III was the developer's most preordered title ever. However, that assessment came with a catch, as the company's preorder tally included World of Warcraft Annual Pass subscribers, who are entitled to a free copy of Diablo III through a special promotion.

Diablo III is set to launch May 15. For more on the game, check out GameSpot's previous coverage.
