S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Call of Pripyat goes on to enjoy a successful global launch

– This first person shooter is storming the top 10 sales charts in the USA, UK and France –

Eschborn near Frankfurt, February 16, 2010: In its first week in the stores, S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Call of Pripyat is taking the charts in many countries by storm. This dark first person shooter was officially released in the USA, UK and France on February 5, 2010, and now occupies top positions in the current sales charts. In the USA and France it touched down among the top three and jumped in at fourth place in the UK. Published by German publisher bitComposer Games and developed by the Ukrainian team GSC Game World, S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Call of Pripyat is repeating the earlier successes of the series, and even looks set to overtake them.

“As young German publishers we are of course thrilled by the national and now international success of S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Call of Pripyat“, says Wolfgang Duhr, Managing Director of bitComposer Games. “We worked closely with the developers and our distribution partners to achieve a remarkable global launch. We are particularly proud of the fact that no German publisher has ever got off to such a flying start in any key territories, and we have now set a benchmark in successful international marketing.“

S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Call of Pripyat was published in the German-speaking world on Windows PC in November 2009 and hit in the shelves in the USA, UK and France on February 5, 2010. Further releases scheduled for February and March 2010 include Spain, South America, Asia and Canada.
