Sony: Bloodborne Sales Have Definitely Eclipsed Expectations
From Software's PlayStation 4 exclusive Bloodborne sold extremely well.
But Sony was a little surprised at the numbers.
As Sony UK Managing Director Fergal Gara told MCV, the well-received Bloodborne surpassed internal expectations:
"It did surprise us. We had expectations to do well. We looked at the Souls series as a frame of reference, and we thought we could do better than that. We did—and then some. Relative to some of our sister territories, we were being quite ambitious, but even that proved to be conservative."
Gara said the solid sales were partly due to good release timing, as not much else launched during Bloodborne's time frame. And although Sony hasn't yet shared exact statistics, we do know the game sold at least one million copies worldwide; we saw that announcement last month. Chances are, it'll keep selling well for some time.
