Dying Light Draws Over 3 Million Players Since Launch; Takes Crown as “Most Popular Title” In Techland’s History

Since its launch at the end of January, players in Techland’s Dying Light have been practicing their parkour and slaying zombies all over the world, and in a new infographic released by the developer, it’s proven to be quite the popular hit already.

Developer Techland released a new infographic chronicling the game’s post-launch status after 45 days since release – remarkably, the game has held a staggering 3.2 million players since release, alongside some other impressive statistics: 378,672,587 zombies have been slain, traveled 150,955,280km of in-game distance has been traveled, and 5,333,912 survivors have also been saved – enough to populate the entire country of Ireland.

For comparison, Techland has already stated that Dying Light is the “most popular title in the company’s history,” with the game even outperforming one of its most popular titles, the original Dead Island, released back in 2011. In contrast, Dead Island sold 1 million copies in its first week of release and 3 million copies in 90 days – Dying Light debuted with 1.2 million copies in its first week, and has so far eclipsed 3 million copies in half the time that Dead Island took.

Dying Light is currently available on PS4, Xbox One, and PC – you can check out the full infographic below for a look at the title’s post-launch success (and zombie-slaying) below:
