Dead Island 2 development was no doubt troubled after multiple teams tried to wrestle the long-awaited sequel to the finish line – a finish line that eventually came into view last week. Thankfully, it sounds like sales of the game have been much easier to come by, and much speedier too.
Deep Silver has revealed that Dead Island 2 took just three days to surpass 1 million global sales. This is a very impressive turnout for the title, especially considering its launch was sandwiched right between the likes of Resident Evil 4 and the upcoming Star Wars Jedi: Survivor in a packed few weeks on Xbox.
Alongside news of this massive sales milestone, the publisher has also released some other numbers relating to Dead Island 2. These might not be quite as important, but still, we like knowing how many zombie limbs have been severed by players!
- 11 million total hours played
- 28 million player deaths (over 2x the population of LA, the game’s setting)
- 45 million zombies sliced in half
- 756 million zombie limbs severed
- 1.1 billion zombies killed
After all that development time, we must admit, we were pretty impressed with how Dead Island 2 turned out. It’s nothing wholly revolutionary, but not every game has to be, and Dead Island 2 is just good old fashioned fun – whichever way you slice it!
