Sniper: Ghost Warrior sells 1,000,000

Proving that a game that focuses on sending bullets through brains is mightier than its middling review scores, Sniper: Ghost Warrior has reached platinum status.

The news comes from publisher City Interactive, who says the game was a labor of love.

“A lot of hard work and dedication by the entire City Interactive team went into the development of Sniper: Ghost Warrior, so we are understandably pleased about the worldwide success of the game,” said Marek Tymiski, CEO of City Interactive.  “This success is the perfect backdrop to reveal details about some of the fantastic games that we currently have in our development pipeline, including the sequel to Sniper: Ghost Warrior and a couple of unannounced projects.”

What’s even more staggering is that the title was able to amass the large sales tally despite being available only for the Xbox 360 and PC. The PS3 edition, which will include a heap of exclusive content, is coming this March.
