SEGA and Twentieth Century Fox have announced today that Alien: Isolation, from developer Creative Assembly, has sold over one million units worldwide.
“It has been fantastic to watch the reviews come in and read of the reactions of players, hidden in the bowels of Sevastopol Station, terrified to make the next move,” said Creative Lead, Alistair Hope in an official statement. “We set out to make the Alien game we had always wanted to play, and from these figures it seems we also succeeded in making the Alien game another million wanted to play. We hope many more gamers enjoy Alien: Isolation in 2015.”
Twentieth Century Fox, the holder of the Alien IP, was also quite happy with the game’s success and how well it payed homage to Ridley Scott’s horror masterpiece.
“Fox is enormously pleased with how both SEGA and Creative Assembly have realized their homage to Ridley Scott’s iconic film Alien,” said Michael Doyle, vice president of interactive games for Twentieth Century Fox Consumer Products said in an official statemnt. “The project represents a paradigm shift in what is possible in the arena of licensed games.”
Alien: Isolation is a first-person survival horror game set on Sevastopol Station, starring Ellen Ripley’s daughter Amanda. Despite some design issues, I thought the game created one of the greatest atmospheric experiences I’ve ever played and was rather enjoyable as a whole. You can pick up Alien: Isolation now on PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One and PC.
