Telltale CEO Dan Connors has told the Wall Street Journal that players have purchased more than 8.5 million episodes of The Walking Dead across consoles, PC, and iOS devices since release. As the WSJ states, at $5 per episodes that's more than $40 million in sales. A quarter of these sales all happened on the iPhone and iPad too.
November and December saw the biggest sales for Telltale, thanks to the release of the finale episode, the retail version release, Apple's Hall of Fame promotion, and all the truckloads of Game of the Year awards it received, including Destructoid's.
Many congrats to Telltale on their successes. Now hurry up and make season two of The Walking Dead happen already.
