Saber Interactive has announced that World War Z has sold almost two million copies worldwide on all platforms since its launch, and that the Epic Games Store has exceeded its expectations. The game has sold nearly 700K copies on the Epic Games Store, making it the top/best digital platform for this zombie co-op shooter.
Matthew Karch, CEO of developer Saber Interactive, claimed that the studio always believed that there was a PC market for this game, and that the team was surprised by its PC sales.
“We always believed the game would find a good following on PC eventually. The surprise was just how quickly it happened, and how important Epic’s platform was in getting us there.
On the PC specifically, we are performing way above expectations thanks to the support we have received from the Epic Games Store.”
Karch also commented on the backlash the team has received over its decision to release the game exclusively on the Epic Games Store.
“We don’t see backlash when console manufacturers create games that are just for their hardware, and buying a system for a game is obviously a much more onerous requirement. My hope is that once there is feature parity on the PC platforms, we won’t hear as much complaining”
