Bastion Sells 3 Million, Transistor Hits 600,000
Supergiant Games reveals sales statistics for its first two games.
Independent developer Supergiant Games has revealed sales numbers for its first two games. In a blog post on the developer's website, creative director Greg Kasavin (disclosure: Kasavin is a former GameSpot editor) announced that Bastion has sold 3 million copies while Transistor has moved 600,000 units.
Bastion was released in 2011, and is now available across a variety of platforms, including Xbox 360, PC, and iOS. PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita versions of the game were announced in December, and will be released in spring 2015.
"Bastion's success exceeded our wildest fantasies by quite a bit," Kasavin said, explaining that the majority of sales came many months after the title's initial debut.
As for Transistor, it's actually selling faster than Bastion when comparing sales data for each game's respective first months. Transistor was released in May 2014 for PS4 and PC. Supergiant has not announced plans to bring the game to Xbox platforms.
"Word-of-mouth is what kept Bastion going for way, way longer than we could have imagined, and it's what's kept Transistor going strong, too," Kasavin said.
