Dead Island, Deep Silver new IP has secured Number 1 chart position in several important territories across the world, and by the end of the week Deep Silver will have shipped around 2 million units globally in its first week of availability.

In the UK, Dead Island ranked number 1 in the all formats chart last week and is also leading the all formats charts in France and Spain, console and PC charts in the Netherlands, Switzerland and Austria and Xbox 360 charts in Italy. Deep Silver say the game has enjoyed similar successes on high chart positions in other territories worldwide.
