Eidos Interactive Ltd and Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment, have announced that the number-one selling Batman: Arkham Asylum™, firmly established as the 'must-have' game of Summer 2009 has shipped in excess of 2.5 million units to retail since launch.

With numerous Game of the Month and Editor's Choice awards throughout the world and a MetaCritic score in the 90s, the game has met with critical acclaim in the media, earning a Guinness World Record for Most Critically Acclaimed Superhero Game Ever.

The Games for Windows® LIVE version launched last week in the US and Europe and the first downloadable content (DLC) went live last week, with additional DLC still to come.

"The tremendous critical and commercial success of Batman: Arkham Asylum sets a new benchmark for superhero games," said Martin Tremblay, President, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment. "Rocksteady Studios created an excellent game and the sales numbers demonstrate how a powerful franchise fused with high-quality production resonates with consumers."
