Batman: Arkham Knight crosses the five million mark

The latest game in Batman Arkham series has sold more than 5 million copies worldwide. Sharing the figure is Mortal Kombat X.

The Wall Street Journal, in an article comparing the success of Warner Brothers' video game division to the company's movie division, stated that Batman: Arkham Knight and Mortal Kombat X have each sold more than 5 million copies worldwide.

"In the past few years, the studio has shot to the top, thanks to major hits including Batman: Arkham Knight and fighting game Mortal Kombat X, which have each sold more than five million units globally," the publication said.

Lego Jurassic World, another game from the Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment, has sold about four million units, worldwide.

Batman: Arkham Knight topped charts in US and UK upon release in June 2015. The sale of PC version of the game, however, was discontinued because of some serious performance and graphical issues. The same would be available towards the end of October according to publishers.

Enjoying the biggest launch in franchise history, Mortal Kombat X along with Batman: Arkham Knight were cited as key contributors in Time Warner's revenue boost for the quarter which ended June 30.
