I'm looking to find out the sales to date of Empire Earth.  Empire
Earth - published by Sierra Studios for PC
( was released in November 2001.  I've
checked out the Sierra site, but there is no info regarding sales
figures.  I'm looking for sales to date on a global basis.  Any sites
that would list global sales figures for games is welcome as well.

Hello Sloppy,

The following can be found on Sierra's Public Relations section:

Sierra Announces Development of Empire Earth: The Art of Conquest (May
16, 2002)
"Released in November 2001, Empire Earth has become a worldwide hit,
with over one million copies sold."

Sierra lists Empire Earth as their #2 game on above page.

Even before the official release date of November 16, 2001, there was
high interest for what Charles Holtzclaw called "the next step in the
evolution of real-time strategy games":

Empire Earth Ships to Retail Stores (November 13, 2001)
"Gamers anxious for their holiday gaming fix have been clamoring for
Empire Earth, as witnessed by the more than 250,000 downloads of the
demonstration version released via the Internet on October 19th. In
addition, retail pre-orders for the game have been sky-high, thanks in
part to a special program that gave gamers a chance to participate in
a special beta-testing program."

At, Empire Earth is ranked at #45 for PC games:

left-hand categories of above page.)

Hope that answers it!

My original search strategy was not successful so I ended up browsing
the Sierra site "manually", but these were the terms used:
    "Empire Earth" sales statistic
    "game sales" worldwide 2001
    computer game sales statistics 2001
    sierra "game sales" "Empire Earth" worldwide 2001
    "computer charts" worldwide 2001
