Capcom just announced with a press release that the Xbox One exclusive Dead Rising 3 shipped over one million copies worldwide making it the publisher’s 62nd million-selling title. The announcement also promised more downloadable content for the future as Capcom sees the increasing popularity of Microsoft’s new console as a business opportunity:

With the popularity of the Xbox One expected to continue to increase, Capcom is aiming to sustain sales of “Dead Rising 3” by launching additional downloadable content with the goal of generating more excitement in the gaming community that can support a long-lasting business associated with this title.

According to the publisher, gamers around the world spent a grand total of 14 million hours playing the game. As of December 31st cumulative shipments of the Dead Rising series reached and surpassed a total of seven million, which is definitely a nice goal for the zombie-slaughtering franchise that first debuted in August 2006.
