BioShock: Infinite could ship 4.9 million units - Analyst
Janco Partners' Mike Hickey believes Irrational Games' upcoming shooter has potential to move nearly 5 million copies.
Although Irrational Games' BioShock: Infinite isn't taking flight until next year on the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC, one analyst is already setting expectations for the game, stating that he believes its shipment total will soar when it is released.
In a note to investors today, Janco Partners' Mike Hickey expressed his belief that BioShock: Infinite will ship 4.9 million copies and generate $221 million in sales. If the game does achieve such success, it will easily outpace predecessor BioShock 2, which has shipped 3 million units as of March 2010.
As for the upcoming title, BioShock: Infinite is set in a chaos-plagued airborne metropolis called Columbia. Gamers assume the role of Booker DeWitt, a former member of the feared Pinkerton National Detective Agency, which was the nation's largest security company in the late 19th century.
