Greedfall's Strong Sales Pushed Focus Interactive To $41.2 Million In Revenue This Quarter
For once, piracy helps a publisher
Greedfall has achieved sales beyond what its publisher Focus Home Interactive expected, helping them turn a record profit.
As reported by Gamasutra, Focus Home Interactive has recorded revenue of €37.2 million (about $41.2 million) in its second quarter report for the 2019-2020 financial year, up 135 percent from their revenue in the same quarter last year. €22.5 million of that revenue came from new releases.
The first half of the financial year broke records for the company, as they recorded €79.8 million (about $88.4 million) in revenue for the period, which ended on September 30. 84% of their sales were digital, up from 65% in the first half of the previous financial year, while sales of the company's back-catalog titles were also up 50%.
During this period Focus Home Interactive has published Greedfall, A Plague Tale: Innocence, The Surge 2 and World War Z, among others. The company will today release Vampyr on Switch.
Greedfall has done well for the company despite a few less-than-glowing reviews, including our own review from Khee Hoon Chan. "Because Greedfall is so cavalier about its colonialist themes," our reviewer wrote, "and because it plays it safe by sticking so closely to the template of open-world RPGs, it doesn't really feel revelatory in any way".
