It has been revealed that Gears of War 2 has already sold 4 million copies in it’s first two months on store shelves. That is a great feat and is double the pace of the original best-selling first game Gears of War.
“The original Gears of War was the fastest-selling next-generation game of 2006, selling more than 2 million units worldwide that Holiday, and now well over 5 million copies sold to date,” said Welch. “With Gears of War 2, the game has sold over 4 million units in the first two months, doubling the pace of the original.”
Gears of War 2 picks up six months after the events of Gears of War, and thrusts players back into a deep and harrowing story of humankind’s epic battle for survival against a nightmarish force of underground creatures known as the Locust Horde.
