Success in the gaming industry is not always just a matter of sales figures. Sometimes, it can also lead to problems of expectations. Do not believe?
Just look at what Square Enix did with Tomb Raider in the past. Despite the fact that it sold up to millions of copies in a short period of time, Square Enix is still not satisfied with this number and calls it a product with sales “below expectations”.
But not with Capcom. Present with rational expectations in the midst of a dream to restore the glory of their old franchise, Devil May Cry 5 they call success.
This was revealed by Capcom in their latest financial report. Capcom says that Devil May Cry 5, which has sold over 2 million copies so far across platforms, is a huge success.
What is done by Devil May Cry 5 now is “revive” Devil May Cry’s life as a franchise, making Capcom have the confidence to build a future for him. In comparison, the previous series – Devil May Cry 4 “only” sold around 3 million copies throughout its lifetime, a number that would not be difficult to surpass Devil May Cry 5 just like that.
Devil May Cry 5 itself is now available for Playstation 4, Xbox One, and of course – PC. How about you? How many of you enjoyed Devil May Cry 5 yesterday?
