DayZ hits 2 million sales

Early access version hits yet another sales milestone

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.
