Publisher Square Enix has revealed that its critically-acclaimed action title Deus Ex: Human Revolution
, released last month and developed by subsidiary Eidos Montreal, has shipped over 2 million copies in total.
The company's content manager Jem Alexander explained that this figure has been reached since its European and U.S. launches in late August, and even before the game has been released in Japan. The game is Eidos Montreal's debut title.
The game was released
at the end of August, and quickly gathered high praise
from the press and gamers alike.
Deus Ex: Human Revolution
went on to top the UK software sales charts, ending Zumba Fitness' 10 week reign
of the charts.
The first DLC release for the game, titled The Missing Link
is due to be released next month, and is set to fill in part of the story that is left out during the main game.
