Aliens: Colonial Marines has been through the wringer for a variety of reasons, but despite all the bad publicity, the game sold 1.31 million units since it released on February 12, according to Sega's year-end financials.
The report, which covers the year ended March 31, shows the game was one of Sega's best selling titles, with Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed performing slightly better at 1.36 million units sold, followed by Football Manager 2013 and the Olympics tie-in game London 2012.
The game has gone through numerous large patches to improve the game. Sega has had to deal with a lawsuit over its ad campaign for the game, and weathered a debate over why the game was released in such a poor condition.
