Congratulations are in order to Techland, Deep Silver, and Koch Media today as they announce that Dead Island has passed the 5 million sales mark, with the number including sales from both the retail and digital editions since the game's release in September 2011.
“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," said Klemens Kundratitz, CEO of Koch Media.
"Dead Island has an incredibly active and enthusiastic community, and we are thrilled to welcome the five millionth player to the world of Banoi. This once again proves that venturing into new waters in terms of games publishing does matter for success and that even at the end of a console cycle new IPs can be created and nurtured into lasting franchises."
The next instalment in the franchise - Dead Island: Riptide - is set for release on April 23rd in North America, arriving here in Europe on April 26th.
