View Full Version : Question about sales

Now this is gonna really sound random, but there is a method to my madness...
Does anyone know how many units the series has sold world wide?
It's a long shot...maybe some officials can help me? *puppy eyes*
Cheers peeps :)

Tricky-it's a very easily verified number for SR1: in excess of 1 million units(most places have it about 1.4 or 1.5)...
As for the rest of the series? Very hard to tell. Eidos has done the "Very strong numbers" bit, but this is really the only information I was able to find that had actual numbers attached...
"In the fifteen months to June 30, 2002 we shipped twenty-one new titles (2001: twenty-three), including eleven for PlayStation 2 and three for Xbox. A number of key franchise titles such as Blood Omen 2, Soul Reaver 2, and the PC CD versions of Commandos 2 and Championship Manager Season 01/02, all sold in excess of 500,000 units during the period. Whilst we were broadly satisfied with the performance of these particular titles, the balance of our portfolio of new releases did not meet expectations."
Full article here-it's a Eidos Yahoo annual report
That's all I could find, sorry.

Apparently most game publishers don't discuss sales unless it's of the "we sold 345 billion copies of Soul Reaver 3!" variety.
Sarah's recommendation of the financial statements is probably the closest you're going to get.
