The peak number of players in the cooperative zombie shooter reached 70 thousand people.
World War Z was released on April 16 on PS4, Xbox One and PC, where the game appeared exclusively on the Epic Games Store, and by April 23 it had a circulation of more than a million copies.
Developers from Saber Interactive were satisfied with the success of the zombie shooter – so, according to CEO of the studio Matthew Karch, World War Z sales at the Epic Games Store outside the US were higher than the team had expected.
World War Z showed strong results in both Europe and the USA. The peak number of players was 70 thousand people on all platforms – the audience on the PC, PS4 and Xbox One was about equal.Advertisement
What surprised us was the sales of the game in EGS outside the USA – they were so high that the circulation in the USA was only 1/4 of all copies sold on PC.
