A few days ago, reports of disappointing sales of World of Warcraft: Mists of Pandaria from analysts Lazard Capital Market may have raised a few eyebrows but Blizzard should not be concerned according to analysts Brean Murray, Carrett & Co.
With no digital sales figures having been made available as yet by Blizzard, Brean Murray are expecting the game to shift 4.5 million copies through digital and retail sales in the third quarter after initial sales of around 700,000 in the first week.
Blizzard are unlikely to release any sales numbers for at least a month but it will be interesting to see how the game has performed in a space which has become more competitive since the last WoW expansion release.
