Microsoft Game Studios boss Phil Spencer has confirmed that Gears of War 2 is closing in on 3 million sales.
“I think they’re pushing 3 [million],” said the exec, speaking in the latest Major Nelson podcast.
“Maybe [Epic VP] Mark Rein has a more up to date number.”
The Epic shooter sold more than 2 million units in its opening weekend at the beginning of November.
Gears 2 sits beside Fable II as Microsoft’s biggest first-party games this Christmas.
