Batman: Arkham City Sells 2 Million in its First Week
Since its release on October 18th, Batman: Arkham City
has already shipped more copies (4.6 million) worldwide than its predecessor, Batman: Arkham Asylum
has sold to date. According to Warner Bros., the sequel to 2009's Arkham Asylum
has already sold over 2 million copies worldwide.
Those numbers are sure to increase in a little under a month, as the PC version of Arkham City
is set to be released on November 15th in North America, and November 18th in Europe.
Martin Tremblay, president of Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment, had this to say in response to the sales figures, "Batman: Arkham City is one of the best action adventure games, proven by the tremendous reviews, and it further establishes the Batman brand as a marquee franchise for our growing business. Rocksteady Studios went above and beyond in delivering an incredible game and the support of the entire team at Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and DC Entertainment drove the excellent campaign a game like this deserves."
In addition to the upcoming PC release, Batman: Arkham City
also has a Wii U port being developed for release in 2012.
