Life is Strange hits 20m players

Narrative title Life is Strange has been played by more than 20 million people since its release.

That's according to the game's official Twitter account, which revealed that the title had hit 20 million players since its launch back in January 2015.

"Something we are very grateful for - the original Life is Strange has hit over 20 million players," the developers wrote.

"We want to thank each and every one of you for playing."

The franchise's co-creator, Michel Koch, added: "This is crazy. Never back then, when we were creating Max and Chloe, imagining Arcadia Bay, writing their stories, never would have I dreamed 20 million persons would meet them and spend time with them! Thanks to all of you!" 

It's worth noting that the tweet says players and not sales; Life is Strange hit Xbox Game Pass back in December 2018 and left earlier this year, which no doubt helped its prospects.
