StarCraft 2: Five million first-year sales, predicts analyst

Analyst Doug Creutz confident of RTS sequel's success

Cowen group analyst Doug Creutz has estimated that upcoming RTS StarCraft 2: Wings of Liberty could sell up to five million copies within its first year on sale.

"The original StarCraft has sold roughly 10 million units worldwide since its launch 10 years ago," Creutz told Gamasutra. "We believe the Chinese online launch with distribution partner NetEase will most likely be in 2011," he added.

Blizzard has finally confirmed yesterday that StarCraft 2: Wings of Liberty will arrive in shops on July 27.
