Dead Island Reaches 3 Million Shipped
Although the game had its fair share of problems, many gamers still found Dead Island wildly entertaining.
Many, many gamers. According to Game Informer, publisher Deep Silver has confirmed that they have now shipped 3 million copies of the zombie-slaying survival game since its September launch.
The advertising wasn't bad, and with decent critical acclaim and that intense, emotional promotional CG trailer that nobody can forget, Dead Island flew off store shelves. We don't have an exact sales number, but here's what Aubrey Norris, Deep Silver Manager of Marketing & PR said:
"Dead Island has sold very, very well over the holiday season and we are thrilled that it has sustained a robust level of sell-through since launch in September."
There have been rumors of both a sequel and a movie adaptation, although neither has been confirmed by the publisher. Right now, it seems Dead Island has done extremely well, and it just might be a hot holiday item, too. We definitely want to see another effort and provided Techland fixes a few issues, it could be a fantastic production.
