Prey Sells Over 1 Million Copies, Sequel Confirmed

Mr. Scott Miller himself of 3D Realms fame updated his blog with some great news for Prey fans. He announced that the game had sold over 1 million copies within the first two months of release, and that indeed plans were in motion for a sequel. He also talks about episodic gaming, conference calling on Skype to do podcasts, his studio working on several external projects with other gaming studios and other information you may or may not like to read (or hear) about. Here is part of his blog post:

Real quick, some good news: Prey is a success. We know that within the first two months it passed one million units sold worldwide. And for a game on two platforms that's pretty darn good. There will be a sequel, and we think we have a interesting follow-up story to tell and some all-new innovations to bring new excitement to the table.

So, going forward, 3D Realms will become a studio polygamist, teaming up with more than one studio, working on perhaps 4-6 external projects simultaneously, creating new IPs and hopefully helping more and more deserving, talented independent studios achieve financial independence, and the ability to call their their own creative shots in the future. I am hiring one or two additional IP Creative Directors to assist me in the management of these games. We've already been contacted by numerous highly qualified independent studios, and more are welcome to contact me. In a way, we're going back to our roots. Fun times ahead!


Thanks to Voodoo Extreme for the heads up.
