The Dark Pictures Anthology: Man Of Medan Has Sold Over 1 Million Copies
Bandai Namco has indicated that the milestone was reached before the game made it to Xbox Game Pass. Supermassive Games, creators of Until Dawn, you are in luck. When will it be fulfilled one year of the launch of The Dark Pictures: Man of Medan, Bandai Namco has announced that the title exceeded the million copies sold, bringing all the platforms together. Furthermore, it has revealed that that figure was reached before the game even landed on the Xbox Game Pass.
The Dark Pictures Anthology is a series of stand-alone cinematic horror games linked by one common element; every playable character can live and every playable character can die throughout the story. According to the devs, this will yield numerous possible endings and near-limitless replayability.
So, selling 1 million copies certainly is a surprisingly high number for a game that largely received mediocre reviews. So, why is this so good for Bandai Namco? Well, the game is set to be formally added to the Xbox Game Pass next week and, with it being available for ‘free’ there, it would likely mark the (practical) end of physical copies of ‘Man of Medan’ being sold.
Hitting 1m is, therefore, about what they would’ve wanted and, with the next addition to the franchise just around the corner, they can now draw a line under this one!
The second part of the anthology, Little Hope, will release on October 30th. Little Hope will focus on replay-ability, as well as multiple storylines, paths and endings. Moreover, each decision will matter and can have repercussions on who survives or meets their demise.
