Bizzare Creations associate producer Chris Pickford has revealed that the franchise has sold over seven million units to date.

“We were absolutely astounded at how well Gotham 1 sold,” said Bizarre Creations associate producer Chris Pickford at Develop last week. “I think we projected that the game would sell around 500,000 units, but we absolutely smashed it.”

As for hard numbers, Pickford had been restrained from giving out the specifics:

“I’ve been told not to mention specific sales figures by the powers that be but I can tell you that the franchise sold over seven million units since the last count.”

It has also emerged that Activision paid $67.4m when it secured Bizzare back in 2007. However, Develop-Online reveals an addition $40m is on offer if Bizarre’s Blur can hit sales targets by 2012/2013.
