*NOTE FOR PRESS: Recently at the 2019 Game Developer Conference it was widely reported Dead Cells had sold 1 million copies. The articles citing that figure seemed to have stemmed from a presentation slide at GDC that referenced sales figures as part of a larger presentation on marketing. The sales figures used in that presentation were from December 2018. We are pleased to report that the most accurate and up to date sales figures top two million copies.
