Alien: Isolation exceeds 1 million sales

Critically acclaimed survival horror title reaches the 1 million sold mark after launching last October

An official tweet today has revealed that Creative Assembly's much praised Alien: Isolation has sold over one million copies since shipping in October 2014.

"It has been fantastic to watch the reviews come in and read of the reactions of players, hidden in the bowels of Sevastopol Station, terrified to make the next move," creative lead on Alien Isolation Alistair Hope said today according to Eurogamer.

"We set out to make the Alien game we had always wanted to play and from these figures it seems we also succeeded in making the Alien game another million wanted to play. We hope many more gamers enjoy Alien: Isolation in 2015."

Interestingly, Isolation has actually been off to a slower start compared to Gearbox's mostly panned first-person shooter Aliens: Colonial Marines, which managed to reach 1.3 million copies sold in just a month and a half after releasing in February 2013. We've reached out to publisher Sega for further comment and will update this story should we get any more information.

Update: A Sega representative has confirmed with us that the 1 million is indeed sold-through, not shipped/sold into retail.
