Starcraft II is very likely to become one of the best-selling games of all time. Industry sources (via Fudzilla) report that the game is expected to sell some six to seven million copies within its first fiscal year. That would be $171 million in profit and a total of $350 million in sales. By contrast, the original Starcraft has sold some 9.5 million copies.

It is possible that actual sales will be far in excess of even seven million. The original Starcraft is one of the biggest games in history. It is played as a sport in South Korea, with stadiums full of fans coming out to watch professional gamers duke it out as Terran, Protoss or Zerg. Blizzard games have a tendency to sell far in excess of even their most optimistic sales projections.
