@KBFloYd: Horizon sold like 7 million copies. It did fine lol
critically? it got suffocated by zelda.
saleswise? 7 million is good. not breath of the wild sales good. is guerilla completely happy with the sales? or did they want to do pokemon or mario kart or GTA numbers? who knows. zelda didnt allow it.
In HZD's case, it was a new IP. I would hope they didn't have expectations that it would sell over 10 million. If anything they were probably aiming for about 3-5 million, and were pleasantly surprised that it sold that much.
