Sega's action-horror game Alien: Isolation, released in October 2014 for consoles and PC, has now sold more than one million copies. The publisher announced the sales figure today, noting the milestone represents units sold worldwide.

"We set out to make the Alien game we had always wanted to play, and from these figures it seems we also succeeded in making the Alien game another million wanted to play," creative lead Alistair Hope said. "We hope many more gamers enjoy Alien: Isolation in 2015."

Sega's licensing partner for the game, Twentieth Century Fox, also sounded pleased with Isolation's critical and commercial success.

"Fox is enormously pleased with how both Sega and Creative Assembly have realized their homage to Ridley Scott’s iconic film Alien," Fox Consumer Products VP Michael Doyle said. "The project represents a paradigm shift in what is possible in the arena of licensed games."

Does Isolation's success mean a sequel is on the way? It's too early to say for sure, though Creative Assembly has said it sees a "great opportunity" to make a follow-up.
