S.T.A.L.K.E.R. sells 1.65 million copies worldwide

stalkerIn Ukraine gaming magazine Gameplay, Sergei Grigorovich, CEO of GSC Game World, mentioned some sales figure for their FPS S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Shadow of Chernobyl. S.T.A.L.K.E.R. garnered quite a lot of controversy for its prolonged development (over six years) but upon its release, the game received a warm reception.

According to a translation, S.T.A.L.K.E.R. sold 1.65 million copies worldwide. 950,000 units were sold in CIS while 700,000 units were sold worldwide. To sell over one million copies worldwide for a game that was so long in development is a heck of a feat, especially on just one platform (PC) too.

GSC Game World is working on a prequel to Shadow of Chernobyl called S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Clear Sky, which is expected in a few months. In addition to enhanced AI, Clear Sky will feature around 50% new levels, enhanced visuals and DirectX 10 support and repairable weapons and items.
