When Batman: Arkham City was announced, I’m sure no one thought that it would be a poor selling title, but nobody thought that it would be as successful as quickly as it has been so far. Warner Bros. has revealed that their next venture in the Caped Crusader’s journey has done extremely well in the marketplace, shipping 4.6 million units in the first week and selling over 2 million copies in that time.
With it’s predecessor title being extremely well made, and this one being better than the original in nearly every way, these sales aren’t very surprising. It is interesting to note that the first game, Arkham Asylum, sold 4.3 million copies. So if the rest of the shipped copies sell, then the sequel will surpass the original in sales as well as content.
