UPDATE: Seems that 1.3 million number was, in fact, smaller than how good Payday 2 has really sold. Game Director David Goldfarb has informed us that Payday 2 has in fact sold through 1.58 million units; and for all intents and purposes should be crossing the 1.6 million mark within the week. We’ve updated the headline accordingly.
It seems people really love robbing virtual banks as Overkill’s Payday 2 has now sold over 1.3 million units to date since its release this August.
This was announced in a press release sent over by Overkill parent company Starbreeze, where it also mentions that over 80% of the total sales have been through digital channels (Steam, PSN, Xbox Live) and at the full retail price ($29.99 digital, $39.99 retail), too.
Additionally, Starbreeze has announced that Payday 2′s “sell-in” volumes are at even more impressive 1.58 million units.
Congrats, Overkill and Starbreeze for making our heist fantasies a reality.
