The Heart of the Swarm expansion also managed to sell about 1.1 million million copies worldwide within just two days of release. This number accounts for both retail and digital sales.

The MLG event took place in Dallas, Texas and was broadcast on Twitch, which reported more than 157,000 concurrent viewers watching the Heart of the Swarm events at peak times.
