War Z executive producer Sergey Titov has talked with Gamasutra about the title, which has been renamed Infestation: Survivor Stories. The game has managed to sell 2.8 million units to date, while the game sold 700,000 units before it was released on Steam.

"At first, this approach worked. Initial interest from hardcore players was very high, and as the game grew more popular, the game attracted more and more casual players," said Titov. "To date, the game has been purchased over 2.8 million times, a sign that both segments were effectively engaged. This is no small achievement for a small indie development team working on a shoestring budget. More than half of those 2.8 million players spent over 50 hours playing The War Z. Some have even spent over 1,000 hours to date playing the game."

"We first launched The War Z on our own site, before hitting Steam, and it was hugely popular in the first 2 months," he added. "In that time, we sold 700,000 copies and had an average of 50,000 concurrent users at a time. Even as a small team, our servers stayed up and our game was stable throughout such a rapid period of growth."
