Kane and Lynch Sells 1 Million Units
I guess it takes more than buckets of controversy and a thoroughly broken control scheme to keep a game down. SCi Entertainment and Eidos have announced that Kane and Lynch: Dead Men has now sold over a million units, despite its relation to the whole Gerstmanngate nastiness and being a rather sub-par game. This pretty much guarantees that a sequel will be released at some point, plus that movie deal will most likely continue.
“We anticipate a positive sales trend to continue through the remainder of FY08 and for Kane and Lynch to firmly establish itself as another key franchise for the Group,” said SCi in a statement.
You know, I’m actually kind of glad the game’s sales weren’t hurt by all the controversy a few months back. It’s not the game’s fault it got swept up in all that. It was however the game’s fault for being pretty terrible. Hopefully all those egregious gameplay issues get ironed out in the sequel.
