DayZ has sold more than 2m copies since release


Bohemia are the only company to have made their millions off of zombies, except maybe that chemical weapons research laboratory that perfected the z-serum and sold it to a private military contractor, and all the other games studios that have made millions off zombie games.

Bohemia have sold more than 2 million copies of DayZ (which is rather lovely according to our DayZ review). Go them.

Dean Hall announced the success through Twitter:
