Capcom has announced that as of December 20, 2013, Dead Rising 3 has sold over 1 million units within the first month since releasing in November as a Xbox One launch title in North America, Europe and other Xbox One markets. The game has become Capcom’s 62nd title to surpass the 1 million sales mark.
Despite the success of Dead Rising 3, Capcom stated that they are committed to supporting Dead Rising 3 and sustaining sales of its open-world zombie game. “With the popularity of the Xbox One expected to continue to increase, Capcom is aiming to sustain sales of “Dead Rising 3″ by launching additional downloadable content with the goal of generating more excitement in the gaming community that can support a long-lasting business associated with this title.”
Since the launch of the original Dead Rising, which was released back in 2006 and managed to sell 1 million units with six months, the franchise as a whole has sold more than 7 million units worldwide as of Dec. 31, 2013.
