That noise you hear? That's the sound of every 14 year old boy running to his mum with this article shouting 'SEE!'

Well then, chalk up another point for DayZ – as Dean Hall noted prior to the weekend on Twitter, the Standalone alpha version of DayZ just broke 2 million units sold – and it has only been four and a half months since it was originally released on Steam.
Just over 2 years ago the DayZ mod released. Today, the Standalone game just broke 2 million units in under 6 months https://t.co/o4WjnTs8Bi

While not quite as impressive as Minecraft, which managed to sell about two million copies in three months, DayZ does have the disadvantages of costing three times as much and being sold by a developer who actively tells people not to buy it. Congratulations to Dean Hall and his co-workers at Bohemia Interactive.
