Updated: Diablo III Blizzard’s most pre-ordered title ever

Updated: Amazon has one-upped Blizzard’s news, if that makes any sense; Diablo III has become the retailer’s most pre-ordered PC game ever.

Original story: People are ready to play Diablo III and they’ve demonstrated it in droves by making it Blizzard’s most pre-ordered title ever.

CEO Mike Morhaime broke the news on the company’s earnings call, also revealing that 1.2 million players have taken advantage of World of Warfcraft‘s Annual Pass offer, which included a free copy of the upcoming game.

“Our players are clearly excited about Diablo III as it’s already set a Blizzard record for preorders,” Morhaime said, “including those who signed up for the annual pass.”

Diablo III is out next Tuesday, May 15th. Who’s counting the days?
