Sniper: Ghost Warrior has sold two million copies, Polish game company City Interactive has announced.
The first-person shooter went on sale in June 2010 on PC and Xbox 360. A PlayStation 3 version launched a year later.
"We are all very happy that we have reached the two million units milestone," City Interactive boss Marek Tymiński said.
"This builds a strong belief we can do even better with the sequel and other upcoming releases."
Sniper: Ghost Warrior 2, built using Crytek's game engine CryEngine 3, is due out in 2012.
City Interactive announced Sniper had sold one million copies in February 2011 - seven months after it launched.
Don't look at me, I'm just as bewildered as many of you are that Sniper: Ghost Warrior did well enough to score a sequel. Perhaps it had something to do with the sexy scenery City Interactive is showing off in the sequel's screenshots.
While I'm a huge proponent for sniping early and often, I just couldn't get into the original Sniper: Ghost Warrior. I generally prefer a game where I get the odd chance to show off my long-range projectile firing skills. Maybe the game was just too much of a good thing?
Either way, even more of a good thing is coming to the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC in early 2012.
Sniper: Ghost Warrior 2 launches on 16th March in Europe and 20th March in the US, City Interactive has announced.
The PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 follow-up to 2010 shooter Sniper: Ghost Warrior is being built using Crytek's CryEngine 3.
Meanwhile, Combat Wings: The Great Battles of World War II launches on 10th February in Europe and 7th February in the US.
Combat Wings is a dog fighting title set during World War II set for launch on PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. The PS3 version features Move support, which lets gamers steer their plane with the Move controller.
