Crystal Dynamics Head Of Studio Says 'Tomb Raider' Reboot Will Pass Six Million Copies Sold At The End Of Month
You can officially call the "Tomb Raider" reboot a success thanks to new information by Crystal Dynamics Head Of Studios, Darrell Gallagher.
In a post on the game's official Tumblr, he noted that the reboot will sell more than six million copies by the end of March. With the game getting a release on the Playstation 3, Playstation 4, Xbox 360, Xbox One and PC, it was able to reach all video game audiences presumably.
Gallagher also mentioned that the game already "achieved profitably" in 2013 and exceeded projections but is still helping out the company's finances.
He also mentioned in the post that there may be a sequel in the works for the "Tomb Raider" franchise.
"And like every great adventure, the story continues long after the initial launch. It's great to be able to look back at the last twelve months and share some of the achievements we are really proud of," he said. "We can't wait to continue our adventures with Lara in the sequel that is in development at Crystal Dynamics. We are also looking forward to building on the success and lessons learned from the reboot to continue redefining and setting new benchmarks for Tomb Raider in the years to come."
In other sales news, it was announced that Sony's PlayStation 4 console has sold over 6 million units globally since its release. The fact was revealed in a post made on the PlayStation Blog by Sony Computer Entertainment's Vice President of Marketing, John Koller.
In the post, Koller used it as an advantage to praise the console's usage since its release.
"There have now been more than 3.6 million live broadcasts, and more than 56 million spectate sessions on PS4 through Twitch and Ustream. In fact, since January 1st, PS4 gamers account for 20 percent of daily broadcasters on Twitch," he said. "PS4 owners are also embracing the Share button on the Dualshock 4 Wireless Controller, with more than 100 million shares captured as fans show friends their latest achievements on Facebook and Twitter."
Meanwhile it's been reported by Complex.com's video game section that Microsoft's Xbox One is only at 3.9 million in comparison.
