Telltale’s excellent take on The Walking Dead may have been a surprise critical success, but it’s also been a huge commercial smash hit too. Chatting with the Wall Street Journal, co-founder Dan Connors has revealed that the series has sold a whopping 8.5 million episodes across multiple platforms. “At about $5 per episode, that’s roughly more than $40 million in sales, not including any promotions,” he said.
To be fair, The Walking Dead has seen its fair share of promotions – including a giveaway on PlayStation Plus – but these numbers are still wildly impressive. No wonder the company has already started work on the hotly anticipated second season.

My copy arrived (from the US) yesterday. Enjoying it so far.
