Since its release in September of 2011, Dead Island has sold-through over five million copies worldwide and still maintains a strong sales rate in all channels, Deep Silver announced.
This achievement includes sales from both retail and digital versions.
Dead Island combines first-person action with a heavy focus on melee combat, character development and customisation of a vast array of weapons. The game is inspired by classic zombie movies with a gritty and engrossing campaign that can be played with up to four players in co-op mode.

Dead Island Riptide, the next entry in the Dead Island franchise, will launch in North America on April 23, 2013, and in the rest of the world on April 26th, 2012.
