Blizzard Entertainment has announced that the latest expansion for World of Warcraft, dubbed Cataclysm, has sold over 4.7 million copies since it was released a month ago.

It initially sold 3.3 million copies on launch day, so there has been quite a bit of slow-down in sales since then, but it's still managed to sell 1.4 million copies in the following weeks after launch.

"We created thousands of new quests, introduced new lands to explore and extensively revamped the game world for World of Warcraft: Cataclysm, making it our biggest and most ambitious expansion yet," said Mike Morhaime, CEO and cofounder of Blizzard Entertainment.

You can bet there will be a fourth expansion coming out at some point.
