The Behemoth has announced that Castle Crashers has now reached the 2 million player mark.

The stats, according to Gama, are based on unique gamertags and leaderboard data.

“It is incredibly humbling to look at the leaderboards and see that crazy number,” said the Behemoth’s Kelly Revak.

“Initially releasing the game we hoped a few hundred thousand people would play it. We never dared to think of 1 million players, let alone 2 million.”

The 2D co-op-based side-scrolling adventure released in 2008 for Xbox Live Arcade. It hit PSN last year.

The Behemoth’s next game, BattleBlock Theater, releases sometime this year.
