Very possibly true, there.

One thing for sure, peoples' expectations of what this licence can deliver has been raised to a respectable level once again. 

'A:CM' was a serious low point for the licence.  The licence desperately needed a strong title like this to bring back some much needed confidence in it.

I think sales will be constant, long after other AAA titles are long gone 'ALIEN: Isolation' will still be around.

It's not dependent on a strong MP community like most AAA games are these days. It has the strong SP campaign to support it which will make it accessible at any point which is nice.

Sales have updated again! 1.5 million as of 27tth December . Over 630,000 on playstation 4 alone. This game certainly hasn't faded away, & despite price reductions which have undoubtedly helped shift more copies, at least there is a pretty widespread fan base installed for the sequel!

Also VG doesn't count digital sales.

1.49!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It will cross the dreaded, Aliens: Colonial Marines.

And that dude with the weird looking cat avatar. No way AVP 2010 sold 5 million copies. Stop making crap up.

Where do you get the correct sales figures from?

AVP 2010 didn't sell 5 million copies. It was not a good enough game to sell that many copies. No, farking, way.

Your opinion is irrelevant to steam sales and online incentives.

It's also a completely irrelevant stat to pull out for comparison to Alien Isolation, unless you have the publisher sales figures for that game too.

Fair enough, but I can't see how 5...million...transactions took place with that game. It was not very well made.

QuoteToday, we're pleased to say that we've sold over one million units of Alien: Isolation worldwide!

Since Alien: Isolation hit the shelves, it's been an exciting time for us at the studio seeing how you, our community, fans and players have taken to our horror survival game.

We've had the great honour of claiming a number of amazing end of year awards from PC Gamer, IGN, Official Xbox Magazine (UK), Rock, Paper, Shotgun, Eurogamer, Destructoid, Official PlayStation Magazine (UK), Time Magazine, Game Reactor, Games Radar and Edge Magazine and many, many more.

With over 50 Game of the Year accolades, we've been immensely proud of becoming one of the most critically acclaimed games of 2014. From everyone here at the studio, a huge thank you to all of our fans who have supported us and helped us win those awards.

If you haven't already taken the step and returned to the roots of Ridley Scott's Alien™ with Alien: Isolation, start your journey now.

Our game is available for Xbox One, PlayStation®4, PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation®3 and will test your survival skills to the limit.

On board a decommissioned station in the far fringes of space, in a tense environment with danger around every corner and against a merciless, unpredictable Xenomorph hunting you from the shadows, how will you survive to complete your mission?

As our Creative Lead, Alistair Hope said, "It has been fantastic to watch the reviews come in and read of the reactions of players, hidden in the bowels of Sevastopol Station, terrified to make the next move. We set out to make the Alien game we had always wanted to play and from these figures it seems we also succeeded in making the Alien game another million wanted to play. We hope many more gamers enjoy Alien: Isolation in 2015."

Just to clarify, it HAS outsold Aliens CM during the same timeframe unlike some media outlets suggested it hasn't ... Aliens CM shipped 1.3m units to shops not to consumers

So? Like ACM didn't take a nosedive in price? All games do over time.

I think you can get ACM for 5.99 at gamestop new.

LOL at the way IGN described it as mixed reaction. It averaged over 80 on metacritic, had like 20:1 positive reviews on websites that don't use scores and has over 50 GOTY awards. It was overwhelmingly positive.
