Trials HD sells over 2 million units on XBLA
RedLynx has announced a milestone for Trials HD, its motorcycle stunt game. Apparently, the Xbox Live titles has sold more than 2 million units counting the core game and the DLC.
The team is, obviously, very pleased.
“It’s been a little more than a year and a half since Trials HD was released,” said Tero Virtala, CEO of RedLynx. “For a digitally downloaded game, this is a significant milestone, and shows one of the many ways the digital space is quickly growing and the industry itself is changing and evolving.
“We couldn’t be more pleased with the success, and we’d like to thank all our fans for their continuous support and enthusiasm for our game.”
Still, just because the game has been successful, doesn’t mean the team is ready to divulge information on the six unannounced titles its working on just yet.
“Naturally we are quite pleased with the success of Trials HD, but the most important thing for us is to continue making excellent games that other gamers will like,” said Antti Ilvessuo, creative director of RedLynx. “Whatever the future holds remains to be seen, but currently we have six teams working on six games, so I can guarantee there are other great RedLynx games in the works.
“Other than that, I must remain silent. It is the Finnish way. That, and sitting in a stiflingly hot sauna during midsummer without saying a word. That is the Finnish way.”
We like how the “Finnish way” sound, personally.
