Tomb Raider Crosses 1 Million Copies Sold in Under 48 Hours

Following some glowing reviews for Crystal Dynamics’ reboot of the Tomb Raider series, Karl Stewart, Global Brand Director for Crystal Dynamics, tweeted this out last night:

Wow, 1m gamers playing in less than 48hrs! @tombraider fans, you’re AMAZING Hearing some stores are running low..more copies are on the way!

As long as stores manage to keep stock through the weekend, don’t be surprised if you hear soon that Tomb Raider managed to achieve two million, or possibly more, sales in its first full week at retail. Whatever the numbers end up being, we’ll be sure to let you know what they are when Square Enix announces them.

Were you one of the million people who picked up Tomb Raider on either Tuesday or Wednesday? Or are you buying it this weekend? Let is know in the comments below.
