Dead Island has now sold over five million copies worldwide, publisher Deep Silver has announced. The game launched in September 2011.

The publisher notes that sales continue to remain high.

"While others focus on ever-increasing development budgets and driving brand messages via ballooning marketing expenditures, Deep Silver stands for hitting the zeitgeist, innovation and fresh gameplay. Dead Island has an incredibly active and enthusiastic community, and we are thrilled to welcome the five millionth player to the world of Banoi. This once again proves that venturing into new waters in terms of games publishing does matter for success and that even at the end of a console cycle new IPs can be created and nurtured into lasting franchises," said Klemens Kundratitz, CEO of Koch Media.

The next instalment, Dead Island Riptide, continues the story, picking up where the first game ended, and will be released April 26.
