TinyBuild and DoubleDutch have reported that online multiplayer game SpeedRunners has now achieved over $3.25 million in sales since its release on August 26, 2013.

TinyBuild also revealed that the title was now an official ESL Gaming eSport and as such will get its own official ESL cups and tournaments.
