When you publish a game based on a license as popular as Batman, you can always expect strong sales. When the game is as good as Batman: Arkham City, those sales can skyrocket. Today, news reaches us that the game has shipped 4.6 million units worldwide in its first week of availability. Holy hype, Batman!
It’s worth noting that the number represents the number of copies sent to retailers, and doesn’t represent the number of copies sold to consumers. Still, you can bet that Warner Bros. Interactive will be raking in the cash regardless, and that those sale numbers can’t be too far behind.
