UT3 and Stranglehold hit 1m sales

Midway CEO David Zucker has announced that the publisher’s new IP Stranglehold and recent FPS Unreal Tournament 3 have both sold over one million units worldwide.

Rampage: Total Destruction on Wii, which was first released back in 2006, has also reached the milestone.

Said Zucker:

Over the last year we’ve had three titles become million plus unit sellers. Stranglehold as we mentioned earlier, Rampage which originally launched in 2006 but has been a perennial catalog seller and hit one million units last year and Unreal Tournament 3.

"Unreal Tournament 3 for the PC and the PS3, have now shipped over a million units total. While it may seem the PC market is slowing as indicated by MPD sales for this title, that is not the case internationally, where PC sales continues strong in a number of markets.

As we expected our European PC sales of Unreal Tournament 3 are outpacing North America and overall the title is turning out to a success. Later this year, we are scheduled to launch the Xbox 360 version of Unreal Tournament 3 and expect it to perform equally well.”
