Red Faction: Guerrilla reaches one million units shipped

It looks like Volition’s hope for a word of mouth success for Red Faction: Guerrilla worked out for the developer after all. THQ sent out its June quarter results today and the company earned some serious money from a couple of its top games.

First off, UFC 2009 Undisputed was a runaway success, proving that a ton of people are into dudes beating up on other dudes; nothing wrong with that — I’m one of them. 2.9 million units shipped worldwide is damned impressive, and hey, the game even reviewed well too.

Those strong numbers, combined with Red Faction reaching the one million units shipped milestone and the videogame adaptation of Up doing what licensed games do best, resulted in THQ being the “#3 independent publisher in the US and UK” for the company’s first fiscal quarter. 

Now if y’all could hurry along and get Darksiders out the door, that would be tremendous.
