While many eyes are focused on the forthcoming sequel to Dead Island, Deep Silver wanted to blow their trumpet a little and have announced that the original Dead Island has just passed the 5 Million sales milestone.
“We’re very proud to have achieved five million units sold worldwide! We see this sustained excellent performance as a particularly good omen for the projected sales of Dead Island Riptide, our upcoming next installment, that will be released later this year,” added Menno van der Bil, International Commercial Director, Koch Media. “The continued success of Dead Island has proven that we’re on the right track with our overall IP strategy for Deep Silver. Further new IPs with an innovative angle and maybe even a surprising touch can be expected from Deep Silver.”
For those who are wondering, Dead Island Riptide is set for launch on April 23rd.
