Sony: 2.1 Million Copies Of Killzone: Shadow Fall Sold (Into Channel) Worldwide
Sony Computer Entertainment announced today that over two million copies of Killzone: Shadow Fall have shipped since the game’s release in November 2013.
2.1 million copies of Shadow Fall were sold online via the PSN, or sold to retailers. It’s worth noting that these numbers (PSN downloads excluded) represent how many units were shipped to retailers, not how many copies were sold to consumers.
Either way, good on Sony for pushing one of the PS4′s best games so hard. We certainly dig it, and Shadow Fall does an admirable job pulling the Killzone franchise into the bright, scary world of x86-based video game consoles.
