Gears of War 2 sells 2.1 million units in it’s first night

1 min read

The first sales reports are coming in and it looks like Gears of War 2 is doing very well indeed.

The release of Gears of War 2 was pushed back from to the 7th of November due to the US elections and so it’s launch stats were always going to be lower than expected however it didn’t seem to do it to much harm.

According to VGChartz it has already sold 2.1 million units and they are expecting it to increase to 2.5 million before the end of the week with a surge to 3.5 in week 2.

When you think that the original Gears has only sold 5.2 million in total you start to believe that Gears 2 will eclipse that by Christmas this year.

We will be posting more about Gears 2 throughout the day but if you were wondering, yes it is good. Very good indeed.
