The PlayStation 3 exclusive Beyond: Two Souls has passed the 1 million units sold mark, according to developer Quantic Dream. The cinematic adventure title was released worldwide back in October.
The news was revealed via a ‘word cloud‘ post on the developer’s website, as the game reached 1 million sales just before Christmas. Quantic Dream also took the time to thank fans for supporting their latest effort
While the number seems impressive, it’s worth noting that Beyond: Two Souls is currently lagging behind Quantic Dream’s previous title, the 2010 released Heavy Rain, in terms of sales. That game passed the 1 million mark in just over two months following its launch.
Although I have not played Beyond: Two Souls yet, it’s always a good thing to see an original IP do well. The games developed by Quantic Dream and David Cage are not always the most well-received, but it appears that the company is building up a decent sized following. It should be interesting to see how the company’s next release does and if thier audience will follow them onto the next generation of consoles.
