2/10 first-person shooter Sniper: Ghost Warrior has sold over a million copies around the world, Polish developer City Interactive has announced.

It achieved the milestone within seven months of the game's official launch on PC and Xbox 360.

By way of comparison, Ninja Theory's excellent flop Enslaved: Odyssey to the West, which won an 8/10 from Eurogamer, only sold 460,000 copies.

"A lot of hard work and dedication by the entire City Interactive team went into the development of Sniper: Ghost Warrior, so we are understandably pleased about the worldwide success of the game," said Marek Tymiński, CEO of City Interactive.

"This success is the perfect backdrop to reveal details about some of the fantastic games that we currently have in our development pipeline, including the sequel to Sniper: Ghost Warrior and a couple of unannounced projects."

Lat month Eurogamer broke the news that a multiplatform sequel was in development.

City Interactive has been working on it since early 2010, and has licensed Crytek's CryEngine3 game engine used to build upcoming shooter Crysis 2 - to help.

The first game is due out on PS3 early this year.
