The Walking Dead Does Well for Telltale, Sells Over One Million Episodes

May 17, 2012Written by Alex Osborn

The first chapter in Telltale’s The Walking Dead game series has done incredibly well for the developer, as total episode sales for the franchise have surpassed one million across all platforms.

A New Day launched a few weeks back on the PlayStation Network, Xbox Live, PC and Mac and, over that time, this first chapter has become the fastest selling game for the developer. In fact, the episode held strong in first place on the XBLA chart for two weeks in a row after being dethroned by Minecraft. Not only that, but A New Day managed to steal the number one spot during launch week on Steam as well.

Telltale’s series will span a total of five chapters, with a new one launching each month. If you haven’t already given this episodic adventure game a look, be sure to head over to the PlayStation Store and try it out. There’s a demo, but for five bucks, you really can’t go wrong.
