Alien: Isolation Has Shipped 1.76 Million Copies Worldwide

SEGA has announced that it has shipped 1.76 million copies of Alien: Isolation worldwide. This is definitely great news for all Aliens fans, as Alien: Isolation targeted a really niche market.

Let’s also not exclude the fact that a lot of fans were disappointed after the previous Aliens game, Aliens: Colonial Marines, meaning that The Creative Assembly had to offer a really good product in order to restore the game’s image.

Back in January, SEGA claimed that Alien: Isolation had sold through in excess of one million units worldwide.

In case you’re wondering about the above numbers, know that sell-through (sell numbers) refers to sales which reached the end consumer, while sell-in (ship numbers) refers to sales into the retail channel (sales which just put product in the shelves, which the consumer might – or might not – buy).

It’s definitely good witnessing such numbers as Alien: Isolation – while it has a number issues – it was a great and polished product. Oh, and we do have to note that this game made us wish for a Jurassic Park survival game in the exact same style.

Now that would be glorious!
