 DayZ  hits 3 million sales after 13 months in Early Access

DayZ hits 3 million sales after 13 months in Early Access

January 23, 2015 | By Christian Nutt




Newsbrief: Today Bohemia Interactive announced that the standalone version of DayZ has hit 3 million sales in Early Access, just over a year since the game first hit the market, in December 2013. 

The game sold over a million copies in its first month on sale -- and as former project lead Dean Hall (who's since left the project and started his own studio) told Gamasutra, "1 million sales in a month in such a specific market, at Christmas, with no marketing... that's got to be a 'shots fired' moment for game publishers."

The game had sold over 2 million copies in four months. 

The developer is currently working on a new engine and delivering content updates to DayZ's players.
