Bastion Sales Top 500k

Bastion Sales Top 500k

Supergiant Games action-rpg Bastion has sold more than 500,000 copies to date across PCs and through Xbox Live Arcade.  Originally launched for XBLA back in July with a Steam version released the following month, Bastion was met with high praise and I even called it one of the top Xbox 360 games of 2011.  Supergiant stated that limited-time price drops for both editions helped spur sales past the half-million mark.

Bastion writer/creative director Greg Kasavin said,”When we set out to make Bastion, a sales number like that seemed astronomical to us, so it feels great to have hit that mark.  It goes to show that a lot of folks out there like what we’re doing and want us to keep going, which is great, because we intend to stick together as a team and do just that.”

In light of their success, there’s been no definitive word as to what the future holds for Supergiant Games.  Earlier today there was an article posted on Destructoid that stated that Supergiant Games next title would not be a sequel to Bastion.  Supergiant Games replied with a tweet saying “We never said this. Too early to say what’s next.”  Regardless of what the future holds, we here at Vivid Gamer will keep you updated as the news arrives.
