    Thronebreaker: The Witcher Tales Sales Disappoint CD Projekt RED

    Sales figures for Thronebreaker: The Witcher Tales have been disappointing, at least to developer CD Projekt RED. It turns out that the GOG exclusivity didn't really work out all that well for them. That certainly seems to explain why we saw the game quickly appearing on Steam just a couple of weeks after its initial GOG release.

    This news came during CD Projekt RED's financial call yesterday. CEO Adam Kicinski provided the following.
    "The game appealed to the community, which drove up our expectations regarding sales. Unfortunately, as yet, these expectations have not been fulfilled. Still, we remain optimistic ... We expect to continue to sell

  • Red Dead Redemption 2 Sold More Units in 8 Days than Red Dead Redemption Sold in 8 Years

    As if there were any lingering doubt about how much of a sales success Red Dead Redemption 2 is, this latest blurb in the Q2 2019 financial report from Take-Two will put some things into perspective.

    Take-Two says that Red Dead Redemption 2 sold more units in eight days than Red Dead Redemption sold in eight years. That is a staggering difference there.

    The report goes on to say that Red Dead Redemption 2 has already sold over 17 million units worldwide. Red Dead Redemption 2 has only been on sale for less than two weeks now. As far as other figures go, strong sales continue for GTA Online...

  • Red Dead Redemption 2 Surpasses $725 Million in 3 Days

    Red Dead Redemption 2 Surpasses $725 Million in 3 Days

    Red Dead Redemption 2 has apparently achieved the biggest opening weekend of all time across all forms of entertainment. This at least what Rockstar is telling me and why would they lie about their own game release? Do you really think someone would do that? How distrusting you are. So what does "biggest opening weekend of all time" really mean? Well, it means that Red Dead Redemption 2 had the biggest opening weekend in retail sell-through across all media types. It also had the second biggest launch (over three days) across all entertainment releases. I'm not sure what the difference is between being the biggest weekend and being the second biggest launch as it's des...

  • Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 Sales Surpasses $500 Million in Three Days

    Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 Sales Surpasses $500 Million in Three Days

    The lack of a single player campaign sure as hell doesn't seem to matter to most of the gaming world, as evident by the fact that Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 has pulled in over $500 million (USD) in worldwide sales just over its launch weekend.

    To put it perspective, that is about the same amount that Call of Duty: WWII pulled in last year. However, it is down ever so slightly from Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 that pulled in over $550 million in its first three days.
    "Black Ops 4 is off to a blockbuster start," said Activision executive vice president and Call of Duty GM Rob Kostich. "Our player counts and hours played are up year

  • Reports of "Weak" Battlefield 5 Pre-Orders Attributed to Lack of Informative Sources from Analyst

    Just a week ago, a number of news stories popped up about weak pre-order sales figures for Battlefield V. We were also among the many outlets that put up at least one story about this. Many of us even went so far as to say that EA's decision to sandwich Battlefield V's release between the year's two most anticipated titles were not doing the game any favors. And while it's still probably true that the earlier lack of marketing and the release date aren't really doing Battlefield 5 any favors, it also might not be selling as badly as we thought. On August 14, an analyst at Cowen said that "pre-order sales of Battlefield V have been weak." What we didn't know at the time, is th...

  • The Ghost of Titanfall 2 Haunts Battlefield 5 as Analyst States "Weak" Pre-order Figures

    Less than a day after EA executive Patrick Soderlund announced his departure from the company, comes word that pre-order sales for Battlefield V are not doing all that well.

    Analysts at Cowen say that "pre-order sales of Battlefield V have been weak." These thoughts from Cowen come courtesy of Sarah Needleman, a reporter for The Wall Street Journal.

    Cowen feels as though the release date and a lack of marketing are really hurting Battlefield V. They say that "Battlefield could suffer the same fate as EA's 'Titanfall 2'."

    As it stands, Battlefield V's release week is pinned smack dab between Red Dead Redemption 2 and Call of...

    Madden Franchise Surpasses 130 Million Copies Sold

    EA just informed us that the entirety of the Madden NFL franchise has surpassed 130 million units sold. The first Madden game was called John Madden Football and it was originally released on MS-DOS. Most current players probably have no idea what in the world DOS even is.

    Since then it has come out on platforms such as the Genesis, SNES, Windows, every PlayStation platform, Xbox consoles, and more. Even the Madden NFL games have managed to achieve almost 73 million installs over the years. There's even a new mobile game, Madden NFL Overdrive, coming out on August 15. Right now, the sales figures are...

    Nintendo Switch Surpasses Wii to Become Fastest Selling Console in US

    According to a Tweet by Nintendo from earlier today, the Nintendo Switch has become the "fastest selling video game system of all time" in the United States. Additional details provided by Nintendo say that in the period from March 3 through December 31, 2017, Nintendo sold 4.8 million Switch units. That figure is just for the States. Total worldwide sales figures were not revealed today.

    To compare, the incredibly well received Wii sold just 4 million units in the same span of time. The Wii was the previous king of "fastest selling console." Keep in mind that the Wii went on to become one of the best selling consoles...

    UK Charts: Star Wars Battlefront II Sales Down 60% Compared to First Game

    According to figures released by UKIE and GfK for the UK, sales for Star Wars Battlefront II are down around 50% compared to first week sales of the first Battlefront release. In addition, sales of the physical release of the game are down 61% compared to those of the first title.

    It is only a guess, but it is entirely possible that some of those lost retail sales were made up via digital purchases. According to the sales charts shared by GI.biz, over half (55%) of all Battlefront II sales were on the PlayStation 4. Roughly 44% of all sales were for the Xbox One, and PC comes in at a whopping 1%.

    This all still somehow put Star Wars Battlefront II in the second position for the UKIE/GfK Top Ten list for the week ending November 18. The top spot belongs to, you guessed it, Call of Duty: WWII.
