Funcom is celebrating today with news that Age of Conan has passed the milestone of “one million copies shipped” in less than three weeks after the launch of the game.

Of course that means that stock piles on the shelves have also been low, however we’re assured that Funcom’s retail partner is now re-supplying retail boxes rapidly.

As a result of the tremendous interest from gamers, Age of Conan has for the past few weeks been claiming number one spots on the sales charts across the western world – including the US, Germany, France and the UK – while receiving glowing review scores from gaming media.

“Sales data shows that Age of Conan is the biggest MMO launch since World of Warcraft,” says Funcom Vice President of Sales and Marketing, Morten Larssen.

“The numbers are very promising, and we are very proud to be one of the fastest selling PC games ever in a launch month and the biggest simultaneous Europe/US MMO launch in history.”
