The launch of Diablo 3 on Xbox 360 and PS3 has helped the dungeon crawler's lifetime sales surpass 14 million units, Blizzard has revealed.

"We're pleased with the response to the game's launch on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360," Michael Morhaime, chief executive officer of Blizzard Entertainment, told investors overnight.

He added: "Lifetime sell-through of the game across all platforms has reached over 14 million copies, and reviews have been very positive about how the game plays on console. Much of the praise has been centred on changes we made to the loot system and our decision to keep the auction house off of the console platform. Players and critics alike have noted that these changes have resulted in a more fun and satisfying game experience."

This feedback has also been fed into the development of Diablo 3 expansion, Reaper of Souls.

"We're building upon those design philosophies for loot and incorporating them into Reaper of Souls, the Diablo III expansion pack which is coming for PC and PS4 in 2014."

Blizzard has not announced plans to bring Diablo 3 to Xbox One.
