Zombie survival game DayZ Standalone has sold over 2 million copies since going live on Steam's Early Access program, creator Dean "Rocket" Hall revealed on Twitter.
“Just over 2 years ago the DayZ mod released. Today, the Standalone game just broke 2 million units in under 6 months,” the tweet read. This is a staggering feat for a game still in early access, and one that only just recently announced it had surpassed 800,000 sales in January, a month after its launch.
DayZ Standalone's sales have been rather rapid, beginning with 88,000 sold in just the first 12 hours, which was later topped by 172,000 in 24 hours. It also dominated the Steam charts at Christmas with its first week of sales numbering over 400,000. One can easily say that DayZ Standalone is indeed a popular title, no matter the early access label.
Hall has previously revealed the roadmap that players can expect DayZ Standalone to travel, including barricades, ragdoll physics, vehicles, hunting and a whole lot more. Check out the full post over here for that discussion, and let us know in the comments on your thoughts about DayZ's early access so far and if you are still playing it.
