Holy 2.5 Million Units Shipped, Batman!

2 million units sold is impressive, sure, but now that the PC version is out and about, Eidos celebrates passing along 2.5 million units to retail shelves since the launch of Batman: Arkham Asylum.

Eidos celebrates the "must-have game of Summer 2009" today, announcing some rather large shipping numbers for the first Batman game in a long while to not outwardly suck. Citing numerous awards, including the dubious Guinness World Record the game earned for highest-rated comic book game, Warner Bros. gives credit where credit is due.

"The tremendous critical and commercial success of Batman: Arkham Asylum sets a new benchmark for superhero games," said Martin Tremblay, President, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment. "Rocksteady Studios created an excellent game and the sales numbers demonstrate how a powerful franchise fused with high-quality production resonates with consumers."

As for how many of those 2.5 million copies shipped have sold since we reported on the 2 million sales, it would take a master detective armed with figures I don't have on hand to work out that figure. To the batcave!
