Based on unique gamertags on its leaderboards, Castle Crashers has exceeded the 2 million player mark as of Christmas Day. The game was first introduced to the world of Xbox LIVE as part of the Summer of Arcade in 2008, and it has been a consistently popular download ever since.
“It is incredibly humbling to look at the leaderboards and see that crazy number. Initially releasing the game we hoped a few hundred thousand people would play it. We never dared to think of one million players, let alone two million”, said Kelly Revak, Mayor of Behemothtown. “We are so grateful to all the players for supporting us. We’re going to do something pretty exciting to thank everyone” said Revak. “Let’s just say there’s an Xbox made of gold involved. GOLD.”
Congrats, The Behemoth! Remember that Castle Crashers is on sale on XBLA for two more days. If you don’t already have it, get it while it’s cheap!
