This statistic shows a ranking of the most successful PC games worldwide, based on unit sales. As of June 13 2017, 5.21 million units of Diablo III had been sold. The game was developed by Blizzard Entertainment and published in May 2012, selling over 3.5 million copies with the first 24 hours of its release. The list of the best-selling PC games made for Windows reflects the biggest players in the computer games market, including Electronic Arts, whose “Sims” series claims four spots on the top fifteen best PC games of all time, and Blizzard Entertainment, whose Warcraft, Wow, Starcraft, and Diablo series take up a collective six spots on the list. Both Activision Blizzard (of which Blizzard Entertainment is a subsidiary) and Electronic Arts produce games for more than just Windows systems, and belong to the hall of fame of the largest computer and video game companies worldwide.
