Batman: Arkham Knight is a pretty solid game, it received great reviews upon launch though only for the console version since the PC version was riddled with issues from the start which ultimately forced Warner Bros. to suspend sales of the title on PC. That doesn’t appear to have had a major impact on the title’s performance because according to a new report Batman: Arkham Knight moved more than five million copies across the globe.
Warner Bros. has not officially confirmed the figures but the Wall Street Journal reports today that the publisher’s gaming division is performing quite nicely. Arkham Knight sold over five million copies and so did Mortal Kombat X, a title also published by Warner Bros, both games were released worldwide earlier this year. Lego Jurassic World is said to have sold 4 million copies.
WB isn’t that different from most game publishers, it doesn’t reveal sales data often, it can’t be said for sure that the publisher will confirm these figures for Arkham Knight and Mortal Kombat X. I should point out here that the report doesn’t clarify whether the figures represent actual sales or shipped copies.
Meanwhile the publisher has still not resumed sales of Batman: Arkham Knight for PC. It has been working on making the PC version better over the past couple of months and is expected to start selling the title again by the end of October.
