One Million Alphas: DayZ Hits New Sales Milestone

January 14, 2014 - GamePolitics Staff

Bohemia Interactive has sold over a million Early Access copies of its zombie survival game DayZ, according to CEO Marek Spanel. The Arma II mod turned into a full-blown product created by Dean Hall has been selling like crazy since it launched on Steam Early Access in December, despite the fact that the game is in alpha and still has plenty of quirks, bugs, glitches, and a general lack of polish.

The game was released on Steam Early Access and via Bohemia Interactive's online store on December 16. It sold 172,500 copies in the first 24 hours of availability and had topped 800,000 sales by January 6, according to the game's developer. Spanel said recently that even a beta version of the game is still a ways off, but that hasn't stopped gamers from buying it early.

In announcing the latest milestone, creator Dean Hall said via Twitter, "So much for PC gaming being dead."

Indeed.

Re: One Million Alphas: DayZ Hits New Sales Milestone

For the sake of the DayZ fans I hope they throw some of the money back into the game to make it more enjoyable and less frustrating. There's another BIS title that's still a mess despite being released at the alpha stage. That said, modders' work should see ARMA 3 being the GOTY for 2015/16.
