Square Enix Ltd. announced today that Deux Ex: Human Revolution has shipped two million units worldwide since it launched late last month (Sept. 23 in the U.S., Sept. 26 in Europe) – not bad for the first three weeks!
By comparison, the current best-selling game of all time as named by The NPD Group, Call of Duty: Black Ops, sold about 13.7 million units during the period between its November 9, 2010 release and the approximate date of March 9. (This title is somewhat in dispute, however, as The Guinness Book of World Records and other sources log the original Super Mario Bros. NES game in at 40.24 million units sold. )
Deux Ex: Human Revolution was as developed by Eidos-Montreal, a Square Enix studio, and is available for PS3, Xbox 360 and on PC both as a boxed game and through streaming services Steam and OnLive. The game has not yet launched in Japan, but is expected to do so this October.
Also in October the first DLC for the title will be released. Deus Ex: Human Revolution – The Missing Link is due on all platforms that month. In this expansion, protagonist Adam Jenson’s mysterious three-day disappearance from Human Revolution is explained. After torture at the hands of Belltower agents that disable his augmentations, he must rely on his human strength to escape from a freighter. Along the way, he uncovers another layer to the conspiracy. The DLC will include new environments and characters and allow you to rebuild Adam’s augmentation set.
