Over 5 million copies of Dead Island sold
Major milestone in worldwide sales for the zombie action game
Deep Silver today announced it has achieved a major milestone in worldwide sales for the zombie action game Dead Island.
Since its release in September of 2011, Dead Island has sold-through over five million copies worldwide and still maintains an exceptionally strong sales rate in all channels. This number includes sales from both retail and digital versions.
"While others focus on ever-increasing development budgets and driving brand messages via ballooning marketing expenditures, Deep Silver stands for hitting the zeitgeist, innovation and fresh gameplay. Dead Island has an incredibly active and enthusiastic community, and we are thrilled to welcome the five millionth player to the world of Banoi," said Klemens Kundratitz, CEO of Koch Media.
Dead Island Riptide is the next installment in the Dead Island franchise. Its story is a continuation of the incidents taking place in the original game and it adds many new features to the co-op focused gameplay. Dead Island Riptide is expected to arrive in the first half of 2013.
