DayZ hits 2 million sales

DayZ hits 2 million sales

Early access version hits yet another sales milestone

Bohemia Interactive

Established in 1999 in Prague, Czech Republic, Bohemia Interactive is an independent game development...

DayZ's early access release has now sold more than 2 million copies.

Dean Hall, the lone developer who created the Arma II mod on which the game is based, announced the milestone on Twitter.

DayZ sold 1 million copies in its first month on sale, and has added another million in the three months since then. That's a remarkably good return for a game that, on paper, isn't even finished yet.

But Bohemia Interactive has responded to that popularity in kind, by body textdoubling the size of its development team. Dean Hall remains the lead on the project, though he has announced his decision to body textleave at the end of the year to start a new studio in New Zealand.

This really is amazing news. I'm glad indies are showing the AAA studios that building games that gamers want to play will bring the crowd... and the money.
